Maple Ginger Fudge Recipe

Maple Ginger Fudge Recipe

I combine two fall favorites--maple and ginger--in this sweet, smooth fudge. One piece just isn't enough!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings


  • 2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1. Line a 9x5-in. loaf pan with foil and grease the foil with 1 teaspoon butter; set aside. Butter the sides of a small heavy saucepan with 1 teaspoon butter; add the sugar, cream, corn syrup and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook until a candy thermometer reads 238° (soft-ball stage), stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Remove from the heat. Add maple flavoring and remaining butter (do not stir). Cool to 110° without stirring, about 1 hour. With a portable mixer, beat on low speed for 1-2 minutes or until fudge begins to thicken. With a clean dry wooden spoon, stir in walnuts until fudge begins to lose its gloss, about 5 minutes.
  • 3. Spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 1-1/4 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

"I followed the recipe exactly , the taste is wonderful. But the texture is grainy like sand nothing like fudge. I'm very disappointed"

"The taste of this was wonderful. However, it did not set for me, despite having my husband beat it with a wooden spoon for over 5 minutes. I will stick to my easy setting marshmallow creme fudge recipe and just try using ginger and maple for my flavoring."

"Yum! This fudge is delicious. It's moist, creamy and melts in your mouth. Leave it out to get this texture. If you put it in the fridge it gets kind of dry and crumbly. You can't taste the ginger, just maple, but it's really good!"
