Maple Fudge

Today at Smoky House we made maple fudge.

  1.  We measured out two cups of sugar.
  2.  We measured 1 cup of the best pure maple syrup around.
  3.  We measured a 1/2 cup of light cream.
  4.  We added two tablespoons of butter.
  5.  We mixed them all and put in a saucepan on the burner until it started to boil.
  6.  We clipped a candy thermometer on to the side of the pan.
  7.  We boiled it to 238 F.
  8.  We let it sit for an hour or until temp reaches 110.
  9.  We beat it until color lightens and softens.
  10.  We let it sit until it hardens and cracks.

We expected it to turn out hardened and cracked, but it was soft and caramel like instead. It tasted like maple caramel. I think we needed more cream. We didn’t whisk it long enough. It turned out decent, but not how we expected it to. If it were to come out right, I would want to make it again.
