  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Boil all ingredients slowly, at a low boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Fill several large shallow pans with fresh, clean snow.
  • (9 X 13" or roasting pan works well)
  • Drizzle liquid taffy mixture onto the snow.
  • If it stays on the top and slightly hardens, it's ready.
  • If it's too hard and sticky in your teeth, it's overcooked. :(
  • Eat immediately, right out of the pan with a fork.
  • Best shared!
