Snow candy?

Some years back I remember seeing a method of making candy that involved filling a 13"x9" pan with snow and then drizzling a thick syrup onto the snow to harden. Anyone recall something like this? It's supposed to snow this weekend and I thought my niece would get a big kick out of it! :D

Oops! Nevermind, found it on Google. Must've misspelled it the first time! :oops:

Is this it DC? http://www.harperchildrens.com/holiday/chri4.htm

That looks really good! We're supposed to get snow & ice here this weekend so I'm afraid it wouldn't work for us. :(

Thank you for posting the recipe, Crewsk! I'd heard of snow cream, but this is my first time reading about snow candy. Sounds really good! Thanks, again!

Yep. A delicious and downright fun treat that children AND adults love! And you can get pretty elaborate in the designs, too!

Just be certain to cook the syrup to the soft ball stage...about 236 degrees F.

In Vermont at the maple syrup houses they do syrup on snow. Sounds very similar to this. They take the little paper holders that you get hotdogs in at a ball game and fill them with snow then they drizzle the fresh made syrup over it. It is a great treat! The kids really love it.

Buckytom I bet your son would love one of those cones. He may never want to leave VT after that
