Maple Fudge Recipe

2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup light cream
2 tablespoons butter

1. Grease well an 8-inch-square pan. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until boiling.

2. Clip a candy thermometer to the side of the pan and continue cooking and stirring until the mixture reaches 238° F, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool without stirring until lukewarm (110° F), about 1 hour.

3. Remove the candy thermometer and beat the mixture with a wooden spoon until the color lightens, the mixture loses its gloss, and the Maple Fudge begins to set.

4. Quickly press into the prepared pan; score into squares while warm. When the Maple Fudge is firm cut into squares. Store tightly covered.
