Maple syrup candy

READY IN: 30mins
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.


  1. Cook syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until it reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  2. Remove from heat and allow to cool to 200 degrees.
  3. Stir constantly until syrup becomes sugary.
  4. Pour into molds (something about the size of a caramel candy).
  5. When candy is cool, you can remove from molds.
