Maple Chocolate Fudge

Julie creates her own take on a local favorite. A maple syrup recipe from the motherland.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 milliliters) whipping cream
  • 1 cup (210 grams sugar
  • 1 cup (240 grams lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 milliliters) maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) corn syrup
  • 3 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate, good quality

Steps

  1. Grease and line the bottom of an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, letting the paper hang over two sides.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, bring all the ingredients except for the chocolate to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Let simmer without stirring until a candy thermometer placed into the centre of the pan reads 240°F.
  3. Remove from the heat and let cool without stirring for 20 minutes.
  4. Using a double boiler, over low heat, melt the semisweet chips until smooth and set aside.
  5. With an electric mixer, beat the maple mixture for about 2 minutes or until it is thick and loses its gloss.
  6. Immediately pour into the prepared pan and spread with a spatula.
  7. Pour the dark mixture over the maple fudge.
  8. Cover with plastic wrap and let cool for 1 hour at room temperature or 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  9. Unmold and cut into 1-inch (2.5 centimeters) squares.
