I found two different Maple Fudge recipes but neither one was 'just right'. This is a combination of the two. I make this for Christmas every year, one batch with lots of walnuts & one without for my non- nutty friends & family. I make only at Christmas because we just cannot resist this fudge and it keeps it special. You can add more maple flavoring depending on how strong a maple taste you like.

How To Make linda's easy maple fudge

  • 1
    Over medium high heat, bring butter, brown sugar and carnation milk to a boil.
  • 2
    Reduce heat to medium, simmer for 7 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • 3
    Remove from heat. Add the maple extract and give a quick mix.
  • 4
    Add the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time and beat with an electric or hand mixer for 2 minutes.
  • 5
    Stir in nuts by hand if using. Pour into an 8x8 or 9x9 pan, lightly buttered. Cool.
  • 6
    This makes a large batch of fudge and in the 8x8 or 9x9 pan it is quite thick, so cut into small squares. I chop the walnuts fairly large but they can be any size you prefer.
