18 maple leaves


  • 2 cups pure maple syrup

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (Optional)


  1. Attach a candy thermometer to a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring maple syrup to a boil in the saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until syrup reaches 235 degrees F (110 degrees C).

  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 until thick, creamy, and lighter in color, about 5 minutes. Stir in chopped nuts.

  4. Pour into molds; allow to cool at room temperature until set.

  5. Unmold candy. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
