Snow Candy

I found a cool recipe to try out in the snow - Maple Snow Taffy.  

All you need is a cup of maple syrup and a 1/4 cup of salted butter....and a prepared baking pan full of snow.

Melt the butter and pour the syrup in a pot on the stove.

Boil to 220-235 degrees on a candy thermometer.

I no longer have a candy thermometer.  I tried my meat thermometer but it only goes up to 220 degrees.  So I let it hit 220 and waited just a moment. 

It may have been a moment too long because suddenly the color started changing.   We rushed outside and poured rows of candy in the snow.  

This is the weirdest directions for a recipe I've ever done.

The candy firmed up quickly in the snow and Nicholas could lift a whole row.  Ours was not stretchy like taffy but it wasn't hard candy.  It was more like a brittle.

It's just YUM!
