Mini Maple Sugar Cones


In Eastern Canada, and especially here in Québec, 
Spring time means maple sugar time.
It's a time to taste all the pleasures
of our Maple Sugar Products.

Today I made these sweet little cones
.A delightful tasting little treat.


Also great to make around Christmas or New Years
while spending time with grandkids.

And a nice idea for Children's Birthday Party






Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb butter
  • 3 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 300ml.
  • 1 1/2 cups minature marshmallows
  • About 60 mini cones 


In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
After butter is all melted, add the maple syrup.


Add sweetened condensed milk and brown sugar



Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes stirring frequently.



Remove from heat and
add marshmallows and mix until 
they are completed melted and blended.








Fill mini cones, be careful, it is HOT
I use a small ladle or a tablespoon to fill them

Place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate to cool.


 Garnish before they harden (optional)
I garnished some with nuts, coconut, candy sprinkles, white chocolate chips and chocolate chips. ~






I also made these with the pointed cone bottom.

A popular recipe this time of year here in Quebec,
 Poudin Aux Chômeurs or Poor-Mans Pudding.
