Winter Fun

on December 20, 2012

King Winter has once again graced us with his presence. So what do we do on a snowy day besides play in it, make a snack with it. Today we were inspired by Laura Ingles Wilder and my friend Jen to make some molasses candy.


First we gathered snow in pans. Each child got their own pan to fill with clean fresh snow.


We heated up 1 cup of molasses and 3/4 cup of sugar in a pan over medium heat until it reached 245 degrees F. Then I poured out the mix into a measuring cup.


The kids each poured some onto thier snow and then we put them back out on the porch for ten minutes.


Time to enjoy, yum!


All of the kids enjoyed the molasses candy. It is sticky on your teeth, I think we will need a good brushing later 🙂
