Reviews for Marvelous Maple Fudge
Sort By :
I followed this recipe to the letter and it was excellent! I think next time I will omit the vanilla extract and just put extra maple for a more intense maple flavor. I think the reason some of the reviewers had trouble with their textures is because they cooked it too hot (you should be somewhere between 3 and 4 on most electric stoves) and be sure that you BOIL it for 10 minutes, not cook it for 10 minutes total. It will take a while to get it to a boil on low, but trust me- it's worth it!
This worked perfectly for me - and I'm not at all experienced with candy making. My mom said it was the best fudge she had ever eaten. I did stir constantly (instead of "frequently") for the 10 minutes of cooking. This was a huge hit at our holiday gathering.
love this recipe!!!! I cooked I on low for the 10 minutes and added a little under 2 cups of powdered sugar! Also I added about 2 1/2 TBS. of maple extract. With all of these little changes it was AWESOME.
I am extremely disappointed that your test kitchen let this recipe be printed with these instructions. The recipe does not work cooking it for 10 minutes on medium. It did not turn out as fudge, it was more like a maple sugar candy. It should be printed with instructions for using a candy thermometer to insure a fudge consistancy. I expect better from Taste Of Home!
There must be an error in the ingredients. I made this and it was dry and had to be thrown out! I cooked it for 10 minutes. Could that be the problem? Please send me a corrected recipe for this one. It sounded SO good.
