I make this fudge at Christmas time and give it to neighbors and friends in holiday tins. It is very sweet! When I was a little girl, my parents used to take us to Mexican restaurant called Monterey House, and under the chips they would put a candy that tasted similar to this fudge. My sister and I didn't like Mexican when we were little, but we loved the candy! I'm not sure about the prep-time, so don't hold me to it.

I made these for my boyfriend for his birthday. He ate the whole pan in one day. Easy to make and really yummy. Thanks!

I was very disappointed. This is a recipe for hard candy and not the traditional "creamy maple fudge" most people think of. I'm disappointed that I wasted $15 of maple syrup to make a recipe that was mis-labeled.
