Throughout the summer we enjoy the fudge sold on the boardwalk at the shore. Hubby and I came up with this recipe so that we would be able to enjoy our favorite flavor year round.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavored extract
  • 1 ½ cups broken walnuts

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Grease an 8x8-inch glass baking dish, and line with an 8x12-inch sheet of parchment paper. The ends will hang over the side of the dish.
  2. 2 Melt the white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and butter in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Stir in the maple flavored extract until just combined, then add the walnuts. Pour chocolate mixture into the prepared baking dish; refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Remove fudge by lifting the parchment paper, then cut into squares.

Chef's Notes

As all microwaves differ, the cooking time may vary. You just want to melt it on a medium power.


  1. This fudge is very good. A few notes for the tweakers etc. First, 3 cups of white chocolate is 18 ounces of white chocolate pieces. Second, a double boiler works fine if you prefer it over the microwave. Third, a 9x9 pan would work fine in place of 8x8; the fudge would still be plenty - Read more ...
  2. OK this is for sure served on the candy platter served in heaven! Super easy to prepare and impossible to stay away from. Next time I'm going to try using Mexican style condensed milk. It has a caramel flavor and is great when you want to play with a recipe. Now it's out to the - Read more ...
  3. My kids and I made 3 different types of fudge over the holidays and this one was my favorite! Just looking at this recipe makes my mouth water-they were that good! They cut nice and evenly, and the maple flavor paired well with the walnuts. This will show up at the holidays and in between - Read more ...
  4. I agreed with CherylB, the overwhelming taste is of white chocolate, not maple. My fudge turned out too gooey and since there isn't any cooking involved I know it can't be blamed on the temperature not being right.
  5. Best. Fudge. Ever! Seriously, this stuff is amazing! I got the idea from another who made this recipe to use some candy cup papers and I used a small cookie scoop to measure fudge into each cup. The papers peel off easily and you have perfect looking and even tastier fudge! I added some vanilla - Read more ...
  6. I made these last Christmas before they became famous:) They rached instant fame in my house. I added some to the give away tins and everyone loved them, will make again this year.
  7. My personal recipe review from dec 29, 2010: Yum! I didn't used to think I like maple flavor but this was really good. It was sooo easy and set up smooth and firm without being dry. It sat at room temp for 4 hrs this morning and held up well to that also. Thanks Shorecook, - Read more ...
  8. I had made this recipe before it had become “kitchen approved”. I’m so glad it is now published so many cooks have access to this exceptional recipe. I usually don’t care for fudge that is made with chocolate chips and I believe that is because chocolate chips have paraffin, therefore contain less cocoa butter. However, - Read more ...
  9. I also had the pleasure of trying this recipe before it became Kitchen Approved. This is my original review ~ Wow Shorecook! This recipe is sinfully delicious! I was in the mood for a melt-in-your-mouth candy for midnight snacking and Redneck Grandma directed me to this recipe. Boy am I glad she did! I toasted - Read more ...
  10. I had the privledge of trying this delicious fudge before it was published as 'Kitchen Approved' (CONGRATS, SHORECOOK!), and have made it MANY times since! Here was my review after my first time making it: AWESOME! I made this just now, and I literally could not wait for it to set up, lol. I was - Read more ...
