Sugaring season has come and gone but about a month ago we made our usual pilgrimage to our good friends annual Sugar Festival. It’s always a fun day spent out of doors, by a fire, usually with an adult beverage in hand. One of my favorite aspects of their sugaring festival is that the proprietor in chief, a.k.a. Big Fred, always makes something ‘new’ from the syrup for everyone to try. One year it was Maple Syrup Candy, another Maple Sugar, and this year it was Maple Syrup Lollipops.
They were so good, not just the kids, but the adults were hoarding them too.
Maple Syrup Lollipops
- 1 cup Maple Syrup
- 1 cup Corn Syrup
- 1 cup White Sugar
I’m not a huge fan of baked sweets, but I do LOVE candy and these were just amazing. Also, I’ve always wanted to try and make lollipops and it took Big Fred to show me just how easy it is… Thanks Fred! And follow this link if you’re interested in the cute little candy molds he used.
Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to brush your teeth if you try making these 🙂
