There are only three ingredients in this old-time maple fudge—pure maple syrup, milk and nuts.
3 cups pure maple syrup
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts
- Butter an 8-inch square baking pan; set aside.
- Combine maple syrup and milk in a heavy saucepan. Boil mixture, stirring occasionally, to the soft ball stage, or 238°F (115°C) on the candy thermometer.
- Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm without stirring.
- With a heavy wooden spoon, beat until mixture starts to become thickened and creamy. Stir in nuts.
- Pour mixture into prepared baking pan, spreading mixture out evenly. Score with knife. Let cool until firm and cut into 1-inch pieces. Store in airtight container in a cool place.
Makes 64 (1-inch) squares.
