Flavor was nice, but I'd use more maple extract next time. Instead of garnishing the fudge with walnut halves, I doubled the chopped walnuts inside the fudge. And unless you like your fudge wafer thin, use an 8x8 pan. I trusted the recipe (unfortunately) and poured the fudge into a 13x9 pan. I realized the fudge was incredibly thin (I'm used to SQUARES of fudge, not WAFERS of fudge!!!) so I quickly removed the foil & fudge from the 13x9 pan and smushed it into an 8x8 (not an easy task since the fudge was cooling and thickening.) Wish the recipe had stated an 8x8 pan - it sure would have made for a more pleasant experience. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because who wants fudge wafers?? I've never seen flat fudge in fudge shops!!!!Read More
i used a whole 43ml bottle of maple extract (almost 4x recomended) and it still tastes like prodimintly white chocolate not even a hint of maple, for 2 batchs the ingredient cost around $20 dollars which was alot for my $100 christmas budget.Read More

This recipe was delicious and so easy to make. I'm not even the biggest maple flavor fan but I can't stop eating the stuff! I suggest a 8x8 or 9x9 pan unless you want very thin fudge. I also use a bit more maple flavoring than suggested or you will taste the white chocolate. Someone mentioned foil getting stuck to the fudge - if you cut it with the foil underneath this will happen. I pulled the entire fudge out and peeled the foil off in a sheet, before cutting the peices. I then stored the pieces with wax paper in between in the refridgerator.
Delicious fudge. Perfect consistency (but you have to give it time in the refrigerator, so PATIENCE!!)I added more maple extract, about 3 teaspoons. I also mixed in all of the nuts. I lined an 8x8 pan with parchment paper which works better than foil in my opinion.
Great fudge! I ran out of maple extract, so I ended up subbing vanilla extract for the rest. This produced a lovely, white-chocolate fudge with a slight maple flavor, which is what I wanted anyway. If you want your fudge to have a rich, white-chocolate taste, you must use white chocolate chips, not "white chips" (or morsels). White chips are usually just hydrogenated oil and sugar (yuck!), with no trace of white chocolate at all. Look for "cocoa butter" in the ingredient list to make sure you are using white chocolate. I used Trader Joe's white choco chips. I think I may leave out the maple altogether next time and just use vanilla, to make a pure white chocolate fudge. I love this! The recipe is easy to use too. I got everything ready before I started cooking; put foil in the pan, measured out marshmallows, white choco chips, and nuts. I opted not to place walnuts on top, but just used extra chopped ones in it. A good compliment to chocolate fudge around the holidays.
Great recipe and very easy to do. The only thing I suggest is to melt the chips and marshmallows in a double-boiler BEFORE adding it into the sugar mixture. I ended up with random little white morsels that didn't melt--an added bonus for some! One of the best batches of fudge I've ever made! Thanks!! :)
This is probably the best fudge I've made to date. It comes out very smooth and not too sweet. Its perfect. I omitted the walnuts, and it's still incredible.
Maple Walnut Fudge is one of my favorites in fudge recipes this was a good quick and easy fudge to make. My family enjoyed it. I found it on the bag of white chocolate chips.
This turned out perfectly and was so delicious. You could always add a little more maple flavoring depending on your tastebuds (I probably would next time) but overall I was very pleased with the ease, texture (soft and creamy as opposed to grainy and crumbly) and taste of this recipe. I did not have mini marshmallows so I used 16 regular marshmallows which is the equivalent. You just have to stir a little more vigorously to ensure they melt quickly. My only suggestion would be to pour it into an 8x8 pan if you like a substantial looking fudge. I used the smaller pan and I'm glad I did, otherwise it would have looked really skimpy when cut.
Made for the 1st time tonight. My Husband loves maple fudge (he's Canadian). Anywho, Changes--*Doubled the maple and cooked for 6 mins rolling. Didnt need to!, just for 5. Also, mix as fast as you can as you add the other stuff, cools off very fast and gets difficult to stir. Thanks for the recipe. We love it and taking it to Christmass Festival. Will make 4ever.
Delicious! The texture came out perfectly. I made a few changes because I didn't have all of the ingredients it called for. I used a mixture of maple syrup, regular syrup and a hint of vanilla for the maple extract because I didn't have any and I also used pecans instead of walnuts. I would make sure to roast the nuts before putting them in the fudge for a better flavor.
I took JillP.'s advice regarding extra maple and she was right! This is the BEST MAPLE FUDGE I've EVER had. I gave up fudge about 4 years ago after screwing up 2 batches. Just figured I sucked at it and moved on to other things. This year, however, I decided to try my hand again and am so glad I did. This is not only FAR EASIER than the recipes I'd followed before, it tastes so incredible. . .like Candy Shoppe type fudge! Thanks so much for this great recipe and for your modifications, JillP.!!
i used a whole 43ml bottle of maple extract (almost 4x recomended) and it still tastes like prodimintly white chocolate not even a hint of maple, for 2 batchs the ingredient cost around $20 dollars which was alot for my $100 christmas budget.
This fudge came out perfect! The texture was not too soft and not too hard at all! Next time, I think I will add a little more maple extract than what the recipe called for though. Maybe 2 teaspoons or so. I could taste a lot of white chocolate from the chips still, so I think more maple would be better. This was a great recipe and I for sure will be using it again next year. Thanks!!
This came out great! I used half brown sugar instead of all white and used more maple extract as another reviewer suggested. It came out SUPER creamy and delicious with the right amount of maple taste.
It was okay...I made this recipe twice & both times used a candy thermometer. The first time turned out what I believe is to be expected - but it wasn't soft. It was kind of hard - did anyone else have this problem? The second time, my chocolate got scorched so that was my fault. I should've added the chocolate after a little longer after the nuts & marshmallows to give the mixture a chance to cool. I think I'll try a different recipe next time I attempt fudge but thank you for sharing anyway!!
If you want superb maple taste, use Mapleine® flavoring. I bought some other brand, and it was so watered down.
Simply put this is the best maple walnut fudge ever. Tastes better than any bought from the best fudge shops for top $$. Delicious!
Ugh. This recipe so sounded similar to my grandma's fudge recipes but a waaay smaller batch and a different flavor. I just had to try it - I was so hopeful. It did NOT turn out well at all and I think it mostly had to do with the directions but there wasnt a very maplely flavor and I use tsp extract. It's still edible so I'll bring it to Thanksgiving dinner and hope it gets eaten rather than wasted.
My husband LOVED this. The next time I make this I will NOT put it on tinfoil (when I cut it, the fudge stuck to the tinfoil and I had to pick pieces of tinfoil off of quite a few pieces). The other thing I would change is to use a smaller dish. I like my fudge thicker (I used a 8x12) dish and the fudge was only about 1/2 inch thick
YUMMY :) Easy to make too. Very creamy. I think I would add more maple flavoring though. I could really taste the white chocolate chips. I did melt the chips and marshmallows together as suggested and it worked out fine. I did not use a double boiler though, just kept the temp low and stirred often. If you use your candy thermometer, the other mixture should get up to 238 degrees before removing your pan from heat and adding the marshmallows and chips, etc. (soft ball stage) I wonder if you could triple or quadruple this recipe and use a loaf pan to get big slices-like in the stores? I think I will try that next time. And there WILL be a next time! :)
Delicious! This was hard to stop eating while cutting it up. Didnt add the walnuts to the top, doubled the maple flavor. Very good and very silky tasting
This recipe is tasty & delicious! Thank you for the "tips" to make to the recipe better so I altered it. I used white chocolate chips, used a smaller pan, used 2 tsp of maple extract & after I boiled the butter, I shut off the stove (this was my idea) then added the marshmallow mixture to the hot butter while the stove element was cooling. This allowed a quicker melting process without using a double boiler or burning the mixture. I opted out from using the walnut haves ontop, it wasn't necessary unless I was submitting the fudge for a bake sale. It was very easy & very delicious. This recipe is a keeper!
Mmm, so delicious. I admit it - I overcooked it. But the flavor is divine, wouldn't change a thing. I wanted to try it with the good white chocolate and maple extract, but my grocer stuck me with imitation flavoring and white "morsels" as opposed to the chocolate; trust me, it tastes just fine. Thanks so much for sharing! ***Made a second time, boiling for just over 4 minutes, and forgot the maple extract!!! So I have a perfectly textured while chocolate fudge, lol. They say the third time's a charm - let's hope so!
Delicious, I used Giradelli White chips and didn't have the maple extract so subbed 1/4 cup maple syrups during the cooking, I also toasted the nuts. Everyone wanted more!
I used 1/2c brown sugar, 1c white, 2tsp extract, land o lakes butter, and boiled a few minutes longer. The flavor is spot on, but the texture needs help. It was very thick upon pouring as well, I assume the boil time was too long and it needs full fat butter. Will try again, thank you!
Best Fudge I've Ever Had!!!!!!!!! This was only my 2nd time making fudge..(first time from a different recipe and did not turn out well). and it was the easiest to make! For those unsure of the chocolate and the marshmallows.. they make the fudge! They really do. They give it that nice creamy smooth texture.
I made this fudge today with just a little 'tweaking' I melted the white morsels and marshmallows in a double boiler while cooking the other ingredients. I also added the maple flavoring (doubled as suggested) into the cooking milk/sugar/butter and salt mixture. When the desired time was up, I poured the liquid into the marshmallow/chocolate combination and whisked it until smooth while still in the double boiler. I doubled the recipe and got two very nice bread pans of fudge which is more in keeping with the slices of fudge you get in shops. My sister said the fudge tasted very good, I found it to be a little 'grainy' but had a good taste...
the best ever
This is the first fudge that worked for me. I made a few changes. I used butterscoth chips and tsp. maple extract. Everyone loved it.
Try to cut back on the sugar a little.
I followed another reviewers suggestions and substituted half brown sugar for white and used extra maple flavoring. Great!
Made this for Halloween. Soooooo good!!!!!
Needs more maple extract.
I've made this fudge a couple of times and it always turns out. By the suggestion of other members, I used butterscotch morsels and extra maple extract. Yum. The only problem with this recipe is that everyone seems to eat way more then they wanted to! Good luck!
I also added a little extra maple. This was delicious!
I took the advise of others and boiled it for ten minutes. I also used 2 teaspoons of maple extract&used a 9x9 pan instead.. I made this at the request of a co worker and friend. I grew up right across.the lake from Vernont where maple nut fudge is popular. While it doesnt taste exactly like that its still really good and so easy to make. I'll definitely make it again!!
Very easy, having a wonderful texture and taste. My daughter loves this fudge. I did take some suggestions made by other reviewers. To the mixture I added more maple extract (to taste), doubled the walnuts and used an 8 x 8 foil lined pan.
It was a bit too soft for my liking. I would either decrease butter to 1 tbsp or increase white chocolate next time. Then, I would likely give it 5 stars. I like it better than the Cookies n Creme Fudge
I'm not sure how people can think this doesn't have enough maple flavor. I think that the maple is very strong. Like most fudges, this is very sweet and rich and just a little piece is all you need. I followed the directions and didn't even use my candy thermometer on this one. It set up perfectly. Nice change from the usual chocolate fudge.
This recipe is absolutely wonderful. I just made this for the first time and got rave review, everyone was asking for the recipe. I wouldn't change a thing other than making a bigger batch.
excellent! my husband and his co workers flipped for this recipe! This is a wonderful treat and goes great with hot coffee on a cold night. I recommend this highly!!!!
This recipe was super easy and the results were creamy and delicious. I was nervous because I'm not a candy-maker and have had fudge-making failures in the past, but this recipe was outstanding. It was a gift for my Dad, and he loved it. As per some of the other reviews, I used 2 tsp. of maple extract, used brown sugar for 1/2 of the sugar quantity, and used an 8" X 8" pan to get a bit thicker fudge. It cut beautifully. Thanks so much for sharing this one!
I've never made fudge before, but found myself craving it today, and after seeing this recipe, I decided to try my hand at it. This came out smooth, creamy and absolutely delicious! I used a little extra maple extract, as I am a huge maple fan and it was just right. It is VERY rich though, so I can only eat a little piece at once. I used parchment paper to line my baking dish instead of foil. It came off clean and easy.
What can I say, SOOOO GOOD and SOOOO EASY. For my first attempt at fudge I was very pleased.
This was a great recipe! The only thing I did differently was add a little extra maple extract.
This fudge was really easy to make, and it turned out very creamy. This was my first time making fudge, and I had no trouble with it setting up. I'll definately use this recipe again!
I wish I hadn't taken the suggestion of another reviewed and mixed in butterscotch chips - their flavor completely overwhelmed the maple taste.
I,ve been making fudge since yrs and tried this recipe,it did not set at all and was toooo sweet with no flavour at all.. sorry!
Can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with this fudge. It is wonderful! When you line the pan with foil, spay it lightly with butter flavored Pam and it will peel off much easier. How this recipe is made, the squares will be somewhat thin. I think next time I will use a smaller pan so the pieces will be more cube-shaped once they're cut. This is a *very* sweet fudge and a little goes a *long* way -- but, it is absolutely divine! FYI, I'm a novice at making fudge, this is only my second attempt and it came out great. It even passed the picky mother-in-law test which is really saying something!
The Fudge was easy to make, set up very well and had wonderful flavor. I'll be using this recipe again. Thanks!
Truly a blue-ribbon, prize-winning quality of recipe! I made this for Christmas gifts for co-workers and neighbors, and it got raves! I will make this for the cooking contest at our county fair this year! The texture is incredibly smooth even after two weeks! The maple flavor is fabulous! My family says this has gone to the top of the fudge list!
My family loved this fudge!! My husband who loves maple said he wished the maple flavor had been a little stronger as he continued to eat it...go figure! This was a kepper for sure
Made this for office Christmas party --EVERYONE--loved it. Had to print recipe for three people that day. Only change I made to recipe is to add 1cup walnts to fudge instead of only 1/2 cup (I love walnuts). Will make again-this will be around every Christmas from now on!
Very good. Not too sweet. I was concerned when I put it in the pan though, because it was the most liquid of all the fudge recipes I've used in the past few days. It's soft, but it set. Perhaps it's softer though, because I used Wilton chocolate (14 oz, because I didn't want 2 oz left over) instead of the Nestle stuff.
I followed the directions and this fudge just didn't taste as good as I'd hoped. Not enough Maple flavor, even though I added extra and the sugar didn't caramelize well so it was a little bit crunchy.
Superb! The only changes I made were that I used butterscotch chips instead of white chocolate, I doubled the amount of Maple extract, and, instead of pressing the walnuts into the top, I just added a 1.5 cup package of walnuts to the mix. Perfect! The best fudge I've ever made!!!
This was so much better than I expected! The maple flavor is subtle and the texture is "just-right" creamy. This is a great recipe and I will definitely make this again!
This is the best maple fudge I've ever made myself! It's smooth and creamy but not exactly the melt in your mouth type of fudge, but don't get me wrong it's delicious!!! I took the advice of others and increased the maple flavored extract to 3 tsp. and it was PERFECT & yes it tasted like maple too not like white chocolate as someone else mentioned. I also doubled the walnuts to 1 cup since I love a lot of nuts in my fudge. Other than doubling those two ingredients I did everything else according to the recipe. I will definitely be making this during the holidays and for many years to come, I've all ready made 6 batches of this just for myself since discovering the recipe a little over a month ago :) 5/5 Stars!!!
Best fudge I've ever had! I increased maple extract to 2 teaspoons - PERFECT. My husband, who doesn't like fudge normally, raved about it!
This was a very tasty fudge I made as a christmas gift, the maple flavour is delicious, although I did add more, and it could have used even more (around here maple extract is like liquid gold so I had to be careful). I'm planning on making the boardwalk quality maple fudge recipe from this site to see which is better, but this is certainly a very good smooth textured fudge.
I don't consider myself much of a cook/baker, but these were easy and very good - perfect for the Holiday Season! I liked the smooth consistency and flavor. The only thing I did different was add another tsp of maple after reading the reviews. My honey brought it to work, and a few of the ladies even asked for the recipe :)
I thought this was pretty awful and I really like fudge. I think it was the "white chips". It might have been good with actual white chocolate.
decadent the way it is. if you add more maple, it will probably taste like pancakes, lol
made with double walnuts and none on top, threw in the freezer for about an hour and so good, couldnt wait to eat them.
Very easy, extremely delicious fudge! Literally melts in your mouth. I got a lot more than 50 pieces - it's so rich a small piece is enough (if you can resist more!).
Very tasty fudge. Not overwhelmingly sweet either. I am definitely happy to put this in my Christmas treat tins this year!
This is my first attempt with fudge, and it tastes awesome! I used a 9X9 in. pan, added a little more maple, using the ~Mapleine~ brand of extract, and used only chopped walnuts. It never set up, I will def. boil longer than 5 min. next time.
This came out great, but would not have been as good without modifications I made at the suggestion of other commenters. There is simply no way this should be made in a 13x9 pan. The fudge would be WAY too thin. I used a 9x9 and it was about right, 8x8 would work splendidly too. I also doubled the maple extract (making it 1 Tablespoon) and it could have used even a little more. The texture came out great, it was smooth and creamy. Be sure to remove the entire fudge from the pan and peel off the whole sheet of foil before cutting. That way you don't have to try and peel foil off of each individual piece of fudge. I would definitely make this again, it was easy and the results were impressive :)
This was the first fudge I ever made. It was easy and it was a huge hit at home.
Really good fudge, however I had to keep it in the fridge because it melted quite easily, other than that-delicous!
Excellent, easy recipe. I followed the suggestion of boiling mix for 9-10 min. Definitely helped. Also added half brown sugar, half white and 3 tsp. of maple extract. Didn't have walnuts so added chopped pecans. Came out amazing!
I couldn't find maple extract so I used vanilla instead. Also used pecans instead. I find the nuts on top are pretty, but hard to eat. Putting lots of pecans/walnuts/whatever nut you use inside the fudge is the way to go. Great recipe. Easy to make and very quick!
I did as suggested and upped the maple flavored extract by a little. This is OK. The maple flavor was just too artificial for me. I LOVE maple donuts and most maple fudge. This just wasn't the right flavor for me. It is too bad.
This fudge is great. Word of advice though, make sure to put it in an air tight container after it sets. If you don't, the top will get crusty.
This is excellent! One of the best homemade fudge recipes I have ever made. Only suggestion I have is double the recipe if you are using the pan size the recipe calls for - otherwise it will be thin; more like a candy bar.
This was the creamiest fudge I've ever made! I used a 9 by 9 inch pan and added extra chopped walnuts rather than using the walnut halves. It was outstanding!
very good recipe..a little to rich in flavor for my taste but everyone loved it!
I didn't think it was all that great. I ended up putting in a good 2 Tbsp of maple flavouring and it still doesn't have a real discernible maple flavour to it. And I think because of all that extra liquid, it didn't set up properly and is a bit too soft to really be cut into nice squares. I won't be making it again.
This fudge was so easy to make and so delicious.
great fudge recipe. thanks.
this is my family's favorite fudge. everyone asks me for the recipe.
My family could not get enough of this fudge! I gave everyone a tin of a variety of fudge for Christmas this year, this one was the hands down favorite. And it's SO easy to make! It will definitely be gracing my kitchen for years to come!
Needed to cook longer than the recipe said to get it firm enough. Also added more maple flavoring to mask the white chocolate flavor. Very tasty though
Gets kinda hard and definitely tastes like white chocolate. I used Ghiradelli white chocolate morsels and they are REALLY waxy. I'll try a different kind next time.
This was Awesome! Everyone loved it :)
Very good recipe; My mom says "Don't change a thing!" But I have some suggestions on making it even better. This was my first attempt at fudge, and it was so easy--a real plus for that reason. But I didn't think it was as tasty as it could have been. When I made it a second time, I used half granular sugar and half brown sugar (3/4 cup of each). Also used 2 t. maple extract, instead of 1 1/2 t. This simple variation made for more of a maple taste and less of a white chocolate taste. Also a couple hints for those who are having trouble with it not forming up the way it should: (1) I found that it had to boil longer than 5 minutes. I boiled it 8 or 9 minutes, stirring constantly. You want it to reach to "soft ball" stage. You don't need a candy thermometer. Just drop a bit of the boiling mixture from a spoon into a glass of cold water. If it forms into small rould balls at the bottom of the glass, you're all set. If not, boil it a minute longer and try again. (2) Get the marshmallows, white chocolate, extract, and nuts all measured out and ready to go so you can dump it in quickly and begin stirring right away as soon as you remove the boiling mixture from the heat. Stir as vigorously as posssible, but if it starts to become too difficult to stir or starts to become granular, return it to the burner (which will still be warm) while stirring. It will soften right back up and become smooth and satiny. Don't leave it on the heat for more than 30 seconds at a time, though.
Wasn't very flavorful, I followed the recipe exactly and it ended up being hard and fell apart on me. Was going to give to friends as christmas presents, but didn't turn out very presentable. Oh, well I will try another recipe. thanks anyways.
Wow, super good! I haven't been able to stop eating them. Really easy to make and very very creamy!!!
I didn't care much for this myself, but others really liked it. I thought that it was a little chewy, which could have been my err in the cooking/boiling process. But th maple flavoring was a good change from the usual peanut butter or chocolate that I make.
Loved it! I just made it the same as I make all of my other fudge (morsels, marsh. creme, etc) and then added the maple extract and chopped walnuts at the end. I have been looking for a recipe for Maple Fudge for years. I end up spending $15 just for a small batch every holiday season because I had to order it out of the kids fundraising package every year. Now I just make this and order something different instead!
I made this for my mom because she loves maple candy, i don't like maple candy so i didn't try it, but she loved it. my hubby liked it too.
Absolutely fool proof!
Exceptionally pleased with this fudge. Following others suggestions, I added 3 tsp maple extract. Doing so yielded a darker colored fudge than that pictured but the taste is amazing.
Very Good! I substituted butterscotch morsels for the white chocolate morsels. This made a great maple flavor. We can't stop eating it.
This is absolutely scrumptuous....the best I have ever made myself. Everyone who tastes it asks for the recipe.
Looks great. Tastes great. Easy to make. Who could ask for more?!!! I tried approx. 3 fudge recipes, and this was my favorite. I would make it every month if there wasn't such a thing as calories!!!!! : )
Excellent candy. I did notice several reviewers said the candy was not maple tasting enough. I added 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup and reduced the milk by 2 tablespoons. I also cook for about 8 to 9 minutes instead of 5. I will surely include this to my candy recipes.
My family loved this recipe! I used half white chips & half butterscotch chips. I also used pecans since I was out of walnuts.
the best fudge!! this was my first time making fudge and i didn"t have all the ingred. so i impro. i used brown sugar and all butterscotch morsels turned out great the fudge is so creaming just a great recipe to go by and you could adjust the flavor however you like!!
