Sugar on the Snow

This is a day worth flipping for!

It is stunning out there this morning...crisp blue skies, sunshine creating a sparkle-fest on blankets of beautiful snow and a wind chill that makes me hunger for...sugar on the snow. What? No cocoa? No, I can have cocoa next week (also shared a non-dairy version last Thursday). 

Sugar on the snow is a treat that I have to put out there today because 60 degree temperatures are coming. I made this as a kid... and ate it as is, without the sour pickles and doughnuts. It is like a maple crusted Slurpee and a perfect fit for today's Thirsty Thursday! Go out there and scoop yourself up some gorgeous snow!

Sugar on the Snow
Vermont Fancy, Grade-A Light Amber Maple Syrup
Pure white snow

Boil syrup to 255 degrees Fahrenheit. Scoop snow into large bowl or pan. Drizzle hot maple syrup lightly over snow.

Use forks to eat the sticky top layer. To eat "traditionally", follow with a bite of sour pickle or your favorite doughnut...or not!
Isn't she a beauty?!
