Maple syrup candy

"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 did it wrong on my first try and ended up making maple sugar (which was delightful since I won't have to buy that again). My 2nd time, it worked great. Thank you for posting this!

    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.

    I just made this candy using a tiny 100 mL bottle of Canadian pure maple syrup that I received in a food swap. (That's all I had, not 2 cups as recipe calls for) but I cooked it as directed. Started stirring it after it cooled to 200°, and stirred maybe 2-3 minutes. Once it started turning sugary, you have to be QUICK to get it into the mold before it hardens! I let it cool off in the mold for about 3 minutes and ate it. YUMMY! I've never had maple candy before but now I know what I've been missing. Thank you Kevin!!!

    I screwed this up - not sure how! I use my candy thermometer often, so I don't THINK that's the problem... but my maple syrup stayed liquid - and I wasted about $10! I'm sure it was my fault, so I went ahead and gave it 5 stars so as not to throw the rating off...

    I liked it, but would have liked it better if it was softer.


I am 31, and a cytotechnologist in the Navy (Don't know what it is? Don't feel bad, few people do)with just under 10 years to retirement. Kerrbear is my wife and we have two GREAT kids, Aidyn (4) and Kelsi (2). Next to my family hockey is my favorite thing in the world, watching, playing, anything to do with hockey, in particular my sons hockey and the Vancouver Canucks. After hockey cooking is the other thing I really enjoy. I'm very open to trying new foods of all cuisines, however the one thing I refuse to try is balut. I could not see myself trying it without MUCH help from a bottle of something very strong.
