Oops--over evap'd maple sap--now I have sugar

Oh--crap. I over evapped the sap, it didn't burn, but now I'm "chiseling" the sugar out of the pans. It is a very pretty light "yellow" but that wasn't what I planned on having. I thought I'd pop it in the freezer in case it isn't as dry as it should be--but I have no recipes for maple sugar--anyone?

Add some water and heat it. You'll be back to syrup in no time.

Maple sugar I think can be used like brown sugar.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Wow, I remember going to the Maple Sugar festival in Michigan growing up. If I ended up with sugar, I would probably eat it until I was sick. We used to love the maple sugar candy (in the shape of a maple leaf) that we would get before riding the swing ride. It was pure maple sugar and SO good!
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!
