Bready or Not Original: Hard Maple Candy
This super-easy recipe makes a LOT of hard maple candy that is best sucked on, not chewed. Perfect for holiday gifts!
candy, maple, no bake
15x10x1-inch pan (jelly roll pan)
light corn syrup
Heavily apply nonstick spray to the jelly roll pan.
In a large saucepan, stir together the sugar, corn syrup, and water. Start heating up. Set up candy thermometer and stir frequently as the heat rises to 300-degrees, which is hard-crack stage.
Remove pan from heat. Stir in maple flavoring. Immediately pour candy into the prepared pan. Cool completely, which won't take long.
Carefully break into pieces. Note that this stuff is like candy glass, and if breaking with hands, it can and will cut the skin.
Pack into individual bags or tins for gift-giving, or stack it in a large sealed container with waxed paper between layers. Can keep for weeks.
OM NOM NOM!
