Molasses-Snow Candy

All you need to make candy on a snowy day is a cup of brown sugar and a cup of molasses.

We heated it to 300 degrees.


Had a dish of ice cold snow ready and waiting.

And just drizzled the candy in the snow.


You can make whatever shape you want, then enjoy!

We just received about 26 inches of snow and made "snow" cones. My children asked if we could make candy like they did in "Little House in the Big Woods" and that led me to your blog. Thank you for sharing! How fun!

I't funny how people feel the same way about good old fashion fun for children.
Simple joys are the best!

We also just started reading a copy of the picture book Christmas in the Big Woods. It took a while to page through Google's results. But I'm so glad I didn't give up. This is perfect. Thanks a bunch!

This is was fun but we didn't like the candy at all. Don't make this if your family doesn't like molasses.

Though in the books, the Ingalls family kept it for Christmas, our candy was damp from having formed on the snow; it made puddles--which made them gooey. We tried our best to dry them off and coated them in dry sugar, but they are not going to last...Oh, well! I guess I'll have to make sure all this yummy stuff is eaten tonight! :D
