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.


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

Directions Step-By-Step

Line an 8 inch square baking pan with non-stick foil. Coat foil with cooking spray
Combine syrup, sugar, heavy cream and salt in a medium sized saucepan
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.
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
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!!
