Maple Walnut Fudge

Nothing says Christmas like fudge! And thanks to the Cookin' Canuck, her Nutella Fudge with Sea Salt has become a holiday staple and favorite.

But this year being our first year in Vancouver for Christmas, it was time to combine the old Christmas favorites with some new recipes. So, I decided to make a new fudge. After all, fudge is easy to make in batches and then enjoy all holiday season long, it's easy to transport, and great as a gift.
This fudge combines Canadian Maple Syrup with walnuts and white chocolate to make a delicious Christmas treat!

Maple Walnut Fudge
Makes 1 pan 9" by 13"

2 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup 2% Evaporated Milk
1 1/3 cups Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
2 cups Mini Marshmallows
300 grams White Chocolate Buttons or Chips
1/2 cup Walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
50 Walnut Halves

Butter the bottom and sides of the pan and line with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, evaporated milk, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes. Add the marshmallows and stir rapidly to melt the marshmallows. Remove from heat and stir in the white chocolate, chopped nuts and maple syrup.

Pour into prepared baking pan. Press the walnut halves into the top of the fudge in rows. Cover and refrigerate until the fudge is firm. Cut into squares.

  1. Yum these look yum. Pecans are not that popular over here, which is a shame but I they would be delish with hazelnuts instead. I'm adding this to my to do list for 2012! Thanks for sharing :)
