    My mom would always talk about doing this as a child. I have never tried it myself and actually had forgotten all about it until seeing your instructable. I'm glad to see that old traditions are still alive & well. Thanks for sharing! :)

    If you go to Quebec City during the cold months, there are many vendors on the street selling maple taffy.

    http://www.quebeccity101.com/maple-taffy/ It's their regional fare there...I'm sure it's easy to make at home with the right kitchen tools though.

    It solidifies the maple syrup, and tastes really good. You can just as easily use ice. I find that crushed ice works better.

    Reminds me of my 3rd grade teacher reading Little house on the prairie or one of the laura ingalls books to us. they did that in the book. Strangely I just thought about it yesterday. anyway I loved your instructable.Thanks

    This looks so tasty, It's making me jealous that we don't get snow or maple syrup where I am.

    I might try some boiled honey and treacle over crushed ice.

    It'll definitely work over ice. I've never actually thought about trying to use honey. That's an excellent idea, i'll be sure to try it.

    We made this on a trip to Quebec once, and it was AMAZING.
    We used little popsicle sticks and walked around trying to eat them before they melted.

    It's funny you mention that, because I actually went to Quebec myself on a school trip, and got to try some myself. Somehow the ones they made tasted a lot better than the one I made lol.

    I grew-up in Vermont. This is universally called, "Sugar on Snow", but I guess it could be considered a form of taffy.

    If you have a candy thermometer, the heated syrup should be 234 °F (112 °C ) when it is poured on the snow. If you live in a snowless climate, you can use ice as well.

    hmm, ice works? GREAT
    i have never physically been near snow and it won't snow where i live so i will have to try this with ice!

    Thank you, my kids have always wanted to do this since reading the Laura Ingalls books.
