Award Winning Maple Fudge Recipe

Award Winning Maple Fudge

1st prize winner at Durham County Fair

Combine the following in a large pot

4 cups packed brown sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

2 tbsp. flour

1 cup light cream

4 tbsp. butter

Pinch of salt

Cook on medium heat till soft ball stage (use candy thermometer).

Remove from heat, add ½ tsp. vanilla and beat with an electric  mixer until it starts to become thick and creamy (approx. 3 to 4 min.)

Pour immediately into a greased or parchment paper lined 8x8 inch pan. Once fudge is cool, turn out onto a cutting board, slice into bitesize pieces, wrap and twist each piece in wax paper (great party favour) or store unwrapped candy in a festive tin.

TIP : If fudge is too hard to slice it means you have cooked or beaten it too long. No worries,  it will still taste terrific, just make it again and keep the `ruined` fudge as your personal stash!
