maple treats

If you’re a maple lover, odds are that you’ve already experimented with pouring the golden syrup over everything from pancakes, to waffles, to (sometimes) just a plain ol’ spoon. Odds are also that the following three words are going to make your mouth water: Maple. Bacon. Parfait. This decadent tower of warm brownie, smooth ice cream, and sweet maple – topped with crispy bacon – is available on the Ottawa Valley Maple Adventures tour, and is just one of the ways that the proud maple syrup producers in Ontario’s Highlands are re-inventing maple.
