Servings: 4


  • Deep heavy pot for heating syrup
  • Candy or meat thermometer (must reach 250° F)
  • Wide shallow pan for snow, such as a 9 x 13 baking dish.



  • Collect fresh snow and pack into the baking dish. Keep frozen.
  • Heat the syrup, stirring to prevent burning, until it boils and reaches a temperature of 235°F as read on the candy thermometer. 
  • If you don't have a thermometer test the syrup for readiness by dropping a bit of the syrup into a cup of cold water.  If it balls up, it's ready.
  • Drizzle the hot syrup over packed snow. It will firm up right away.
  • Use a spoon or popsicle stick to swirl it up off the snow and enjoy!
