How many of you have already started making your yearly batch of Christmas goodies? May I suggest that you add this Maple Fudge to your list of things to make this year? It’s downright amazing!!
I consider fudge an absolute must have Christmas treat. My mother-in-law requests that I make peanut butter fudge each year and I usually whip up a batch of classic chocolate too. But this fudge is my new favorite. You can taste all of the things it has going on – butter, brown sugar and maple. And it is insanely delicious. There isn’t a whole lot of hands on time required to make this, from start to finish it’s about 20 minutes. So it really is a simple thing to have on hand for treat trays and to give away this holiday.
- 1 cup BUTTER
- 2 cups packed BROWN SUGAR
- 1 (5 oz.) can EVAPORATED MILK
- 1 teaspoon MAPLE FLAVORING
- ½ teaspoon VANILLA EXTRACT
- ⅛ teaspoon SALT
- 2 cups POWDERED SUGAR
- Line an 8 or 9 inch square pan with foil and butter lightly or grease with cooking spray.
- In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine butter, brown sugar and evaporated milk. Bring to a full boil, stirring frequently. Turn heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often.
- Remove from heat and stir in maple flavoring, vanilla extract and salt. Using a stand or electric mixer, beat in powdered sugar for about 2 minutes until smooth.
- Spread in prepared pan and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
