1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup cream (Heavy/Whipping Cream)
1/3 cup of butter
1/4 cup of maple syrup ((Option: Sub Corn syrup for maple syrup when making other versions)
pinch of salt
Add the two sugars, butter and cream maple syrup and salt into a sauce
pan. Place over medium heat. Stir while bringing to a boil. Lower the
heat and continue to stir slowly while the mixture cooks. After about 7
minutes, test by pouring a small amount into some cold water. You want
it to form a soft ball. You might need to cook it for another minute or
two. Remove from the heat, add a couple of teaspoons of vanilla and
start stirring. It takes about 14 or 15 minutes for the fudge to cool
and thicken. Pour into buttered dish.
TIP: If you let the
fudge sit for 10 minutes after removing from the heat and allow it to
cool slightly this will reduce the stirring time.
Option: Replace the cream and cup of white sugar with one can of
Sweetened Condensed Milk and increase the maple syrup to 1 cup.
