Few things are as decadent as chewy maple candy popped out of the mold. Maple candy is made from maple syrup round the clock in the Candy Cabin at Maple Town.
First the maple syrup is poured into a pot to boil.
Soft Maple needs to boil at 110 degree celsius for a few minutes.
Boiling maple syrup at different temperatures makes different kinds of maple candy from taffy to soft chewy to hard candy.
The spoon is laid in a pot of hot water to prevent sugar hardening and clumping.
The maple syrup roils and boils over on the stove top to evaporate the water and concentrate the sugar.
Maple candy is easy to make. Only one ingredient is used, maple syrup, and few tools are needed to make the candy.
After the syrup cools for a few minutes, you must rapidly stir the maple syrup to introduce air into the mix.
Stir until the the liquid reaches peanut butter consistency.
Pour the mixture into the your chosen mold. We use a maple leaf design.
After the mixture is poured into the mold, spread the mixture evenly across the mold using a spatula.
As soon as the maple candy is cool, pop the candies out of the mold and enjoy.
