We just tried this today,usign evaporated milk.......sadly it did not work as it is liquid.
Fantastic recipe. Wanted to celebrate some amber maple syrup from Pennsylvania. Used the version with cream. Followed exactly and it came out perfectly delicious.
Will post it on our blog www.donachyblog.wordpress.com.
I made this for my husband for Christmas, and he loved it. I followed the recipe, using cream and omitting the nuts. I also beat it by hand after because I didn't want it to dry out. I beat it for about 10 minutes. It was smooth, sweet and creamy. My husband said it's the best maple fudge he's had. Thanks.
I maded this fudge last year,and I loved it also beat it by hand after I read one of the reviews, It was a little hard and fell apart just a little. Im making again this year. Thanks for this recipe.
Delicious! Like most fudge, you don't want to over-beat it. The syrup i bought only had 1 cup in the bottle, so i used 1/2 cup of good quality normal syrup and added some maple flavoring. DELICIOUS! I suggest maple flavoring if you really want that mapley taste. Fudge came out good and the whole family loved it!
My fudge turned out very dry. I used the evaporated milk, maybe it would have turned out better if I had used the cream. I tried to follow the directions exactly, but after beating for 5 or 6 minutes, it became so dry that I stopped beating it earlier than directed. I think 5 or 6 minutes was too long with my mixer because it was creamy early on in the process. After cutting the fudge, many of the squares crumbled from being so dry. The flavor wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be either.
We have a winner! Rich and creamy - I used evaporated milk. I made this today using the last of my 'real' maple syrup and it was a huge hit. 3 generations of my family thank you for bringing this taste of Canada back into our lives.
I love maple ANYthing and had tried a few other maple fudge recipes, with so-so results. This is the best: sweet, mapley and with just the right consistency. I omitted the nuts with no harm to the fudge. I prepared it with the evaporated milk and may try it again with the heavy cream. Great stuff!
