I filled a baking sheet with snow and had my sister heat up some syrup (my Dad still has gallons of syrup from last year) in the microwave. Did I mention that I've never made maple candy? Apparently you are supposed to boil it down some more, oops.
I poured the hot syrup over my pile of snow and did not get the candy I expected.
We dished the maple snow into small cups and bowls and ate it like ice cream. It was quite delightful, I'd do it again.
