  • 2 cups maple syrup

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  1. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with waxed paper. Butter the paper.

  2. Bring maple syrup, heavy cream, and brown sugar to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Continue to boil, without stirring, until mixture starts to bubble and registers 240 degrees F (166 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.
