Before starting to cook the fudge I greased an 8 x 8 inch baking pan.

Then I placed a medium sized sauce pan on the stove, added a half pound of butter and turned the heat to medium.

Next I measured in some evaporated milk and brown sugar.

I occasionally stirred these ingredients together until the butter had melted.  Once the butter melted I stirred it continuously until it started to bubble.

When it started to bubble I stopped stirring and allowed it to boil for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes I removed the fudge from the heat and poured it into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Then I poured in some vanilla extract and gave a quick stir.

Next I gradually added in 2 cups of icing sugar while I continued stirring.

I stopped stirring once the icing sugar was fully integrated into the fudge.  Crush as many icing sugar lumps as you can if you have not sifted it first.

At this time you could also add in some chopped walnuts if that is how you prefer your fudge.

I scraped the hot fudge into a greased 8 x 8 inch baking pan and allowed it to cool and harden for a couple of hours.

Once the fudge was hard I inverted it onto a cutting board and used a sharp knife to cut it into squares.

Maple fudge is a smooth, creamy dessert that will melt in your mouth.  It will be hard to eat just one piece!

I don’t get it. How can this be maple fudge with no maple in it? Gives me the urge to go boil down a bottle of syrup.

Hi Ailsa, We have always called it Maple Fudge. We do make our own maple syrup and want to try incorporating that. Think I would have to boil it a lot longer. Some people might refer to this as brown sugar fudge. We have been making it for years. Take care, Kathleen

What is icing sugar ? Is it plain sugar ?

Kathleen

Hi Elizabeth, In some places it might be called powdered sugar I think. It is the sugar you make frosting for cakes with. Hope this helps. Take care, Kathleen

How do you get it to taste like maple with no maple flavoring?

Kathleen

Hi Jane, The flavour comes from all the brown sugar. I may try a variation soon that includes our own maple syrup. Thanks for checking out my site, Kathleen
