Reviews for Hard Maple Candy
"I love hard candy and this was really easy and yummy!"
"I have homemade maple syrup. Could I use this instead of the flavoring? How much?"
"Mmmmmm!!! Maply syrup in candy form!! Delicious, but difficult to break into pieces by hand (maybe I'm just weak)...used a small tack hammer to gently chip into pieces. I only had 2 Tblsp. of maple flavoring left, so I added 1 Tblsp. vanilla and still tasted mah--velous!!!"
