gaynel's Story

I got this recipe ages ago and made it once at Christmas time. It smells wonderful and reminds me of the "maple" sugar leaf shapes My dad bought us when I was a child. You must use pure maple syrup, not maple flavored pancake syrup, to get the true authentic flavor.

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
pure maple syrup
1 3/4 c
sugar
2/3 c
heavy cream or 1 can 5 oz evaporated milk
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 stick
unsalted butter, cubed
1 tsp
vanilla
1 c
chopped walnuts

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Line an 8 inch square baking pan with non-stick foil. Coat foil with cooking spray
2
Combine syrup, sugar, heavy cream and salt in a medium sized saucepan
3
Bring to boiling over medium high heat stirring. Once boiling cook 7 to 8 minutes or until mixture registers 238 degrees on a candy thermometer.
4
Remove pan from heat, with an electric mixer, beat in butter and vanilla.

Continue to beat on high for 8 to 9 minutes or until thickened, light in color and fudge loses its glossy finish
5
Stir in nuts and spread into prepared pan

Let stand until firm, about 25 minutes.

Cut into squares.

Could I have over whipped it? It is really taste good, just kind of crumbly. Falls to pieces when I try to get it out of the dish. Thanks, Kim

I used the heavy cream haven't tried it with evaporated milk. It should be just 5 oz though that's what I would have used.

Hello, I have a question about the this recipe. I have never made fudge before so I really followed this to a tea. But the fudge turned out really dry not creamy has great flavor though. My question is I put in 5 oz evaporated milk. Was it suppose to be 1 can 5 oz? Thanks would appreciate any help. Thanks.

This fudge recipe is amazing! I make mine without the walnuts, though. I've made it both ways, with heavy cream and another time with evaporated milk. They had kinda different flavors, but both were delicious!!
