Snow Maple Syrup Taffy

We woke up to a winter wonderland today!  It has been SNOW beautiful outside!!!! The only way to make this day even better was to make some Snow Maple Syrup Taffy!
Cookie Sheet full of freshly fallen snow
Boil Maple Syrup until it reaches 240*
Pour on top of snow
Make individual taffy size pieces
It smells so good!
Ready to make taffy!
Roll up the taffy pieces onto popsicle sticks
It rolls onto the stick quite easily
Chewy, sticky, yummy maple taffy!
We will have to make this again!

 Our pond is finally frozen enough that we can ice skate or go ice fishing.
The pond always looks so beautiful in winter!
This area of the pond is frozen but is super clear ice.  
It looks like we used a zamboni!
Perhaps it is a subtle reminder that there will be warmer days ahead.
Happy Icy Sunday!
