Including my Maple Cream Fudge.

Maple Cream Fudge
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup cream
1/2 cup of butter
1/4 cup of maple syrup  or white corn syrup
Pinch of salt

Add the two sugars, butter and cream, syrup and salt into a sauce
pan. Place over medium heat.  Stir while bringing to a boil.  Lower the
heat and continue to stir slowly while the mixture cooks.   After about
7 minutes, test by pouring a small amount into some cold water. You
want it to form a soft ball.  You might need to cook it for another
minute or two.  Remove from the heat, add a couple of teaspoons of
vanilla and start stirring.   It takes about 14 or 15 minutes for the
fudge to cool and thicken.  Pour into buttered dish.

TIP:  When removed from the heat, let the pot sit for 10 minutes.
When it has cooled you won't have to stir as long.

Option: Replace the cream and cup of white sugar with one can of
Sweetened Condensed Milk and increase the maple syrup to 1 cup.


  1. Ann, I have made your fudge and it is wonderful. Wishing you a nice weekend!

  2. And to you too..and I ditto Debbie:)

  3. I have pinned this for the holidays. I have a difficult time finding chocolate without lecithin - this sounds like a yummy alternative and still have fudge.


  4. Ann, I managed to see your wonderful fudge on the cooking forum yesterday. But every time I visit that site, it brings my pc down to a crawl. It's the only site I've been having trouble with in the past few weeks.
    At any rate, just wanted to wish a Happy Canada Day to you, and my dear Monique too!

  5. Your Maple Cream Fudge is making my mouth water. If it is half as good as it looks it is a winner. I can't wait to try this recipe. To: "me"
