I am by no means an experienced nor good candymaker, so I'm not sure what I did wrong with this recipe. (I'm sure it was an error on my part, because Taste of Home recipes don't usually fail me!) My batch turned out very crumbly and not at all fudge-like. The flavor was great, although the ?maple-y-ness? wasn?t as intense as I thought it should be, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I will give this another try because I have been craving maple fudge and was so excited to find an easy recipe! I think I will cut the powdered sugar down to 1 or 1.5 cups instead of the 2 cups called for in the recipe. The other change I will make is to eliminate the vanilla and instead use 2 teaspoons of maple flavoring to make it taste less like caramel and more like maple.
