Pure, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth maple candy using only pure maple syrup! It’s a treat almost like fudge. Add anything you want like chopped nuts. Use small maple leaf molds or other pretty shapes.
- 2 cups pure maple syrup
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- 1 In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring the maple syrup to a boil over medium-high heat stirring occasionally. Boil until syrup reaches 235 degrees F (110 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.
- 2 Remove from heat and cool to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C) without stirring, about 10 minutes.
- 3 Stir mixture rapidly with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes until the color turns lighter and mixture becomes thick and creamy. Stir in chopped nuts, if desired.
- 4 Pour into molds. Set aside to cool. Once cool, unmold candy. Store in airtight containers up to 1 month.
