Deliciously sweet and soft candy.
- 2 cups pure maple syrup
- ½ cup chopped walnuts Optional
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, get the syrup boiling over medium-high heat while giving it an occasional stir. Keep boiling until the syrup reaches 235 F on a candy thermometer.
Take the pan off the heat and let it cool to 175 F without stirring, about 10 minutes.
Quickly stir the mix with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes until it becomes thick, creamy, and lighter in color. If you want to use the nuts, stir them in now.
Pour the into candy molds, then leave them to cool. When they've cooled, take the candy out of the mold and store it in an airtight container for up to a month.
