Recipe by Kevin Young
Maple syrup candy is so good, and so easy I was surprised nobody had submitted a recipe for it. This is just a quick one from a store cook book, but it is very good.

I didn't cook it as hot, I pulled mine off the stove at soft-ball. I then whipped it in my mixer and added a little vanilla and butter, I formed little balls out of it and rolled them in powdered sugar! It was fun and very easy to make these into a maple cream candy that was kid and Failsafe/Feingold freindly! I find it alarming that parent give their young children hard candies as they can get stuck in their throats so easily, that is why I made this into a soft, melt in your mouth, creamy texture.
