Maple Nut Fudge. Who knew, right? It turned out absolutely delicious! My sweet hubby claimed this one as his favorite. He said he like the ones with nuts best. He is kinda nutty..... But that's just how I like him.
4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup genuine maple syrup
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Line a 9-inch square baking dish with foil. Butter and set aside.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, butter, maple syrup, milk, and miniature marshmallows; cook, stirring occasionally, until the candy or digital thermometer reaches 235 degrees F. or until it forms a soft ball when a little of the mixture is dropped in cold water. Remove from heat.
Let cool to 115 degrees F; add nuts and vanilla extract. With an electric mixer at medium speed, beat until mixture loses its gloss and starts to harden around edge of saucepan. Pour into prepared baking dish. Cool completely. Cut into squares.
Yields 36 squares or 1 1/4 pounds.
