In the mean time direct your kids to the nearest patch of fairly deep, unstepped on, non yellow, cleanest snow they can find. Give them a pan or shallow dish (in this case I used a 15" pizza pan with edges). I have the kids scrape off the top layer of fluffy snow with their hands or a clean cup.
Then pour the molasses in drizzles randomly all around the pan. Nothing fancy now just go all over the pan.
As the molasses makes contact with the snow it will harden into a strip of candy.
Let it cool for just a minute (it will cool fast) and pick up a drizzle to eat. They are delicious with the snow clinging to it, cold and sweet at the same time.
I don't recommend making more than you can eat at that time because if left in the house the candy will go back to it's molasses state. Better yet take a few to eat yourself and give the rest of the snow pan to the kids to take back outside and eat in the cold. It will give them more energy to run around and get adorable red cheeks as they 'accidentally' throw snowballs at each other's faces.
