After doing some research, I learned that this was a traditional treat from back in the 1800s.

How to Make Snow Candy

There are actually several different types of snow candy you can make. The pictures in this post are from when we made Molasses Snow Candy. (Yum!)

Molasses Snow Candy

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 TAB molasses
  • 1/2 teas vanilla
  • 2 TAB water
  • 2 TAB vinegar

Maple Snow Candy

1 cup real maple syrup
1/4 cup butter instead

Add all ingredients from one of the above snow candy recipes to a stock pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until you have a soft ball stage (240 F) for chewy candy or hard ball stage (310 F) for hard candy ideal for sucking on or crunching.

Candy Stage Test

If you don’t have a candy thermometer you can just put a drop of the hot mixture in a cold glass of water. If the candy drop becomes firm but pliable you have soft ball stage. If the candy becomes hard and cracks when pressed it is at hard ball stage.  This takes about 7-12 minutes.

Drop your Candy in the SNOW!

Now comes the fun part. pour the candy on clean, fresh snow that is at least 2” thick. The candy will sink down ever so slightly (less than 1/2”).  Pick, eat & enjoy!
