MILO Malt & Chocolate Maple Taffy

This delicious recipe is inspired by the Huron-Wendat’s (and other Indigenous communities) cultural use and understanding of maple trees, its sap, and the traditional methods of processing used to create one of Canada’s most loved and well-known condiment – maple syrup. This sweet and interactive snack is now a popular attraction at sugar shacks (or cabane à sucre) across the country during harvest season.

What you need

Ingredients

8 cups crushed ice
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) maple syrup
1/2 cup (125 mL) Nesquik Chocolate Syrup
1/4 cup (60 mL) Milo Chocolate Malt Drink Mix

How to prepare

Instructions

1

Pat crushed ice into large baking dish or serving tray and keep frozen.

2

In a small saucepan set over medium heat, add maple syrup. Cook, stirring occasionally for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture reaches hard ball stage – when candy thermometer registers at 245°F (118°C) or when a small amount of mixture is dropped into cold water and forms a firm ball.

3

In large spoonfuls, pour maple syrup mixture onto crushed ice, making 5-inch strips. Let cool for 5 to 10 seconds. Place popsicle sticks onto mixture and gently twirl, winding to pull taffy mixture from crushed ice. Repeat with remaining mixture and popsicle sticks.

4

Drizzle with Nesquik Chocolate Syrup and sprinkle with Milo Chocolate Malt Drink Mix.
