Maple syrup fudge
One of my favorite homemade fudge recipes to make in the Fall is this maple fudge. With its creamy maple fudge texture and loaded with lots of maple flavoring, this easy recipe will become a go to recipe for delicious fudge every Fall.
Ingredients for maple syrup fudge:
1 stick of unsalted butter – softened
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
1 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 tsp maple extract
1 cup of real maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 can of Eagle-brand (sweetened condensed milk) – 14 ounces
1 1/2 cups of White Chocolate chips – melted
Here’s how you make this easy maple fudge recipe:
First: Spray a 9 inch square pan with cooking spray, and line the bottom with parchment paper. In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer use the paddle attachment and mix the butter, sugar, maple extract, brown sugar, and Vanilla on low speed, until smooth. Place the flour in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave the flour until it’s hot, about 1 1/2 minutes, then it will be the perfect temperature and safe to eat. Add the flour and salt to the mixing bowl and mix on medium speed, until smooth.
Melt the White Chocolate in the microwave at 10 second intervals until it reaches the right temperature, stirring between, until melted. Stir the maple syrup into a mixing bowl.
Add the Eagle-brand milk to the melted white chocolate, and stir until smooth. Add the White Chocolate mixture to the mixing bowl, and mix on low until completely blended.
Pour Fudge mixture into the square prepared pan, and press evenly into the pan with a wooden spoon or spatula. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or longer if needed, until the fudge is the right consistency or firm, and set. Using a sharp knife, cut fudge into 1 to 2 inch small squares, and place on a plate or platter to serve. We love to enjoy this decadent creamy fudge with a hot cup of coffee. Enjoy!
Fudge may be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 6 days.

While you can use pancake syrup if you need to, we recommend using the best maple syrup you can find. We love maple grove farms pure maple syrup as well as Williams Sonoma maple syrup.
Extra add ins: Some people love to add nuts to their fudge recipe. You can add 1/4 cups of chopped walnuts and make maple walnut fudge. It’s a good idea to store this easy fudge recipe in an airtight container for up to 6 days in the refrigerator.
Another simple recipe you can make with leftover maple syrup is maple butter, mix 1 stick of butter with 1/2 cup of maple syrup and beat in your mixer until smooth! Add a little bit of butter on toast or pancakes and you will find it is the perfect treat on a Fall morning.
