A golden nugget.

Yesterday for the first time I tried something new for the first time.  It  can only be described as a little golden nugget of solidified maple syrup.  It tasted like heaven!

I first came across this Canadian product while watching a little 30 minute documentary of how various Canadian maple syrup and sweets are made.  While sampling these small pieces of heaven (yes I do have a very sweet tooth!) I started to find out more information about these little tasty morsels on the internet.  What I have found I pasted a

Pure Maple Candy 

Pure Maple Candy


“Pure, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth maple candy using only pure maple syrup! It’s a treat almost like fudge. Add anything you want like chopped nuts. Use small maple leaf molds or other pretty shapes.”


  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring the maple syrup to a boil over medium-high heat stirring occasionally. Boil until syrup reaches 235 degrees F (110 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.
  2. Remove from heat and cool to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C) without stirring, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir mixture rapidly with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes until the color turns lighter and mixture becomes thick and creamy. Stir in chopped nuts, if desired.
  4. Pour into molds. Set aside to cool. Once cool, un-mold candy. Store in airtight containers up to 1 month.

I think I might have to have a go at making these when I get back home and have acquired a suitable mold for the hot maple syrup to set in.
