Ingredients
  • 2 cups fancy grade-A pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon milk, cream, or butter
Directions
  • Heat the maple syrup and the milk, cream, or butter over medium-high heat to 242 degrees F, about 10 minutes.

  • Let the bubbles settle down for about 1 minute.

  • Stir the hot, thickened syrup with a wooden spoon until it just begins to turn grainy or you begin to see granules forming, about 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Working quickly, pour the syrup into molds.

  • While the sugar is still soft, use a large wide, stiff spatula or bench scraper to pack syrup into the molds and smooth the surface.

  • The candies should take 10 to 30 minutes to harden. When they are hard, pop them out of the molds. Store in an airtight container.
