Sugar on snow

When hot maple syrup is drizzled over snow is results in a delicious candy-like substance.  The drizzle and the temperature of the syrup must be precise – too hot a syrup and the snow melts too fast, too cool a syrup and it becomes watery and sinks through the snow to the bottom of the pot.  Perfectly heated syrup will form a lace-like pattern across the top of the snow and quickly hardens.
