Mad for maple? Then you'll love this list of maple candy recipes. From maple fudge to maple truffles and everything in between, there's a maple recipe here to suit your sweet tooth.
1. Maple Leaves
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.
Maple Pecan Brittle is a buttery toffee with a robust maple flavor and a nice crunch from toasted pecans.
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.
Maple Fondant is a smooth, creamy candy filling with a bold maple taste from real maple syrup. Try pairing this sweet fondant with dark chocolate and salted pistachios for a delicious fall treat.
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.
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.
