I have never made fudge before but my husband requested this I didn't think I would eat any but it is sublime! I used toasted pecans instead of walnuts which were wonderful next time I'll use about 50% more than the recipe calls for because I like the crunch they add. Next time I'll add a pinch of salt or perhaps salt the pecans while toasting them. The texture of this was really perfect smooth and creamy instead of dry and grainy like a lot of fudge is. I also agree the presentation was lovely. Thanks for the recipe I will use it as is and try many modifications in the future! Read More

This tasted like plain vanilla fudge-not what I expected at all. It's only redeeming qualities are its ease to make and its smooth texture. If you're looking for something that tastes really 'mapley' keep looking. Read More

I made this fudge as a white chocolate/vanilla fudge instead of maple (I've already made maple fudge this year). So I just used vanilla in place of maple extract. It is so good and easy to make. It tastes wonderful and cuts very well too. It looks beautiful and will make nice gifts. I'm happy to have found a "white chocolate" recipe for fudge! Read More

Quite good! I agree with a previous reviewer who said that the white chocolate taste was a little overwhelming. I upped the maple extract to 3 tsp only added 2 cups of white chocolate chips and I can still taste the chocolate clearly. After reading the other reviews that said their fudge came out too soft I used a candy thermometer to make sure the sugar/milk/butter mixture got all the way to 234 degrees. It boiled for much much longer (I live at a high altitude that might have been part of it as well). Either way the marshmallows and chocolate melted just fine and it cooled to the perfect fudge consistency. I also toasted the walnuts before I added them and that was very good. Read More

This recipe is great. You need to make sure you bring it to a fast boil and boil it for 5 minutes. I doubled the recipe and added a smidge more maple extract. Turned out wonderful. Also made the recipe substituting (in a double batch) 2 cups semi sweet chips and 4 cups milk chocolate chips for the white chips. Made great chocolate fugde. Easier than Aunt Teen's Fudge. I like using the mini marshmellows instead of creme. The mixture boils quicker. Just have to do a lot of stirring after to melt everything. Will make this recipe often. I give a gifts at Christmas time. Everyones loves it! Read More

This fudge was okay but the texture wasn't very good. It came out very soft. Also the flavor was not very strong. The fugde tasted more like the white chocolate chips than maple. Okay recipe but not the maple fudge recipe that I was looking for. Read More

I made it exactly according to the recipe. And it never quite set up enough to cut. I had to put it in the freezer. Tastes great though I'll probably modify a no fail fudge recipe to make maple fudge. Read More
