Maple Nut Fudge
Yield: 36 pieces Prep 10 mins Cook 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups maple syrup
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream or 5-ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Make It

1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick foil. Coat foil with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Combine syrup, sugar, heavy cream and salt in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring. Once boiling, cook 7 to 8 minutes or until mixture registers 238 degrees F on a candy thermometer.

3. Remove pan from heat; with an electric mixer, beat in butter and vanilla. Continue to beat on high power 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.
