  • 100 % Pure Canadian Maple Syrup: 2 tablespoons taffy per participant (1 cup of syrup for 6-8 people)
  • Popscicle sticks; one per each participant
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Heatproof gloves
  • sheet pan filled with clean snow


Instructions for Maple Syrup Taffy

  1. Place 1 cup of maple syrup into small heavy saucepan; clamp candy thermometer firmly on side
  2. Bring to a boil; wearing heatproof gloves, stir constantly to avoid over flow, until 235F
  3. Remove maple taffy from heat; sit until bubbles settle; pour over clean snow in thin strips, winding around popsicle strips almost immediately to avoid taffy freezing first (or just eat the frozen strip)

Recipe Notes

ATTENTION: Keep children away from hot taffy when pouring onto cold surface; it is safe temperature only after poured - then work fast!
