1. Maple Leaves

Elizabeth LaBau

Maple leaves are made from pure maple syrup with a touch of butter. The result is a sweet candy with an intense maple flavor. If you're a true maple lover, I recommend using the darker Grade B syrup for a more robust maple taste.

2. Maple Pecan Brittle

3. Creamy Maple Fudge

Creamy Maple Fudge has a silky-smooth texture and a wonderful fall flavor from real maple syrup and crunchy toasted nuts. I like using pecans or walnuts in this recipe, but hazelnuts would also work well.

4. Maple Fondant

The warm, homey taste of maple is paired with spicy ginger in this unusual and delicious Maple Ginger Fudge. I love the combination of ground ginger and chopped candied ginger that gives this fudge an extra punch of flavor.

Bring a taste of breakfast to your candy making! Maple Buttermilk Truffles are white chocolate truffles with the tangy taste of buttermilk and the sweet flavor of maple. To reinforce the breakfast connection I topped each with a mini waffle-patterned cookie, but that step is completely optional.

7. Maple Caramel Truffles

The maple flavor shines in these deliciously indulgent Maple Caramel Truffles. A sweet and chewy caramel made from real maple syrup is coated with rich chocolate and topped with a sliver of toasted pecan.

Maple Fondant Acorns are cute balls of maple fondant formed into acorn shapes and decorated with a chocolate-and-nut acorn cap. The combination of sweet, creamy maple fondant, bittersweet chocolate, and salty nuts is irresistible.

9. Maple Fudge

Maple syrup and toasted pecans make this smooth fudge taste like autumn! I sometimes like to chop the pecans very finely, so that they are speckled throughout the fudge, but you can leave them in larger chunks if you prefer.

10. Maple Creams

Maple extract gives these smooth, creamy candies their distinctive taste. They are delicious topped with nuts, or you can try dipping them in chocolate if you prefer.
