    Used agave nectar instead of maple flavoring.

    These are simple to make and the maple flavor was subtle and just right.

    It's a very simple recipe to make but I haven't gotten the correst yield either time I've made it.I skipped putting them in the fridge since I learned the first time it's easier to coat them in walnuts if they're warm. It's also easier to coat in walnuts if you chop the walnuts and put them in a ziploc bag, just shake to coat and it's more evenly coated that way
