What you need:1 cup pure maple syrup
snow (or make your own using crushed ice)
a medium-sized pot
a large cake pan
a candy thermometer
4 popsicle sticks
- Pack snow into the cake pan. Leave it outside if it’s cold enough, if not, put it in your freezer while you do the next step.
- Boil the maple syrup until it reaches 110–127ºC on a candy thermometer. You’ll know it’s ready if it forms a thread when you drop a bit into some cold water. This should take about 10 minutes.
- When the syrup is ready, drizzle it across the snow in short rows. Roll up onto the ends of popsicle sticks to make a lollipop. Don’t wait too long, otherwise it’ll be too cold to roll. If this happens, just eat it with a spoon. It’ll taste just as good!
