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.
- 2 cups pure maple syrup (no substitutes)
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup half-and-half
- 1⁄4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
- Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
- In a heavy 3-quart saucepan, combine maple syrup, sugar, half& half, and corn syrup.
- Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring jut until ingredients are combined.
- Cook maple mixture, without stirring, to 236F on a candy thermometer (softball stage).
- Remove fudge mixture from heat; stir in butter and beat with an electric mixer until candy is lighter in color and just starts to feel thick.
- Fold nuts into fudge and pour into a greased pan.
- Cool to room temperature on a wire rack.
- Remove fudge from pan and break into pieces or cut into 36 squares.
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.
I am no maple fan at all but my two kids are. I made it for them one afternoon and let we say i did like it!
