Do you love fudge? And, the flavor of maple? Then you will love me 🙂 for sharing this maple walnut fudge recipe with you. Maple walnut is a favorite flavor of mine so when I saw this fudge on another food blog Scrambled hen Fruit ( fun name, right?) I knew I had to try it out. Truth be told I have never been good at making fudge, I’m not sure why but I’ve tried several different recipes and it never turns out like I anticipated. Well, I’m happy to report this recipe has met all my expectations, it’s smooth, cuts well, isn’t dry and crumbly and tastes wonderful! I feel like I can make good fudge now, yay! I love to give homemade gifts for the holidays so I can’t wait to give this maple walnut fudge away. Enjoy the recipe and this wonderful time of the year.

Maple Walnut Fudge

1 cup light brown sugar
1(7 oz). jar Marshmallow Fluff
1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk
6 T. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (11 oz.) pkg. white Chocolate Chips
2 tsp. maple flavoring
1 1/2 cups walnuts, coarsely chopped

Step 1: Line an 8 in. square pan with foil. Have the foil extend over the edges of the pan, so that it’s easy to lift out when the fudge is ready. Chop nuts, measure out white chocolate chips and maple flavoring and set aside.
Step 2: In a heavy saucepan, combine brown sugar, evaporated milk, marshmallow fluff, butter and salt. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Set timer and boil for five minutes, stirring constantly, then remove from heat.
Step 3: Add the bag of white chocolate chips and stir until melted.
Step 4: Stir in maple flavor and walnuts. Pour into prepared pan and smooth the top.
Refrigerate uncovered until set, about two hours or let sit on counter until completely set.
Step 5: When ready to cut lift block of fudge out by the foil edges, and cut into chunks. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container between layers of waxed paper. Will keep a week in the refrigerator.

Very pretty and very tasty looking Suzanne! And your right about how clean and pretty this stuff cuts. That is always an issue for me, thanks!

I love fudge this time of year. Chocolate fudge is my favorite, but I am always up for a new flavor.

Thanks Carol, I like maple walnut ice-cream too so I knew this was going to be good!

This fudge reminds me of the maple candy that I used to love as a child! Yum!

My Mama would LOVE these! Totally bringing them home at Xmas – perfect gift!

I am not a huge fan of fudge because I don’t like most recipes that are overly sweet without much flavor. With maple and walnuts, one of my favorite flavor combination! I think I shouldvgive this a try. Plus, I think they’ll be a really nice homemafe gift. 🙂

I know what you mean about fudge being so sweet, I am not a huge fan of the super sweet type either, I think you will like this recipe Amy.

I’m not too big on fudge, although I know lots of people who love them! So if I made a batch of this to giveaway, I’m sure I’ll be a ‘star’!

Just died and went to heaven and I don’t really like fudge (too sweet). I think yours could change my mind!

13 Lisa {AuthenticSuburbanGourmet} December 2, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Loving this fudge! So perfect for the holiday season. I bet it did not last long in your house. Hope your weekend is going great. 🙂

It’s been forever since I’ve last made fudge and I’ve never used this combination of flavors before–love the sound of this, Suzanne. 🙂

This looks amazing and a must make for the holidays! Have you ever tried making it with maple syrup? Just curious, as I have been using a lot of maple syrup in my baking/cooking lately. Delicious!!

I love Scrambled Hen Fruit- a lovely site full of fun creative recipes!
We always made fudge one the holidays using marshmallow fluff but not with this combination of flavors-I agree it’s a fantastic recipe and pretty fudge to share at Christmas;-)

Yum this fudge sounds fantastic and I love that she used marshmallow fluff in it. So simple but I am sure delicious!

What a gorgeous fudge Suzanne! I love the maple flavor and walnuts are my favorite nuts.

23 Julia | December 7, 2012 at 4:58 pm

This is perfect for Holidays! the photos are very pretty: love the huge pine cone behind the fudge.

24 Amy (Savory Moments) December 7, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Yum, yum, yum! I love homemade fudge around the holidays. Maple and walnut are so great together.

Stunning and so delicious looking! Well done as always…

26 Nami | Just One Cookbook December 8, 2012 at 2:25 am

What a beautiful combination – walnut and maple! I actually don’t eat much fudge because I don’t really find very good ones. Homemade must be so nice… I can see everyone eating this gets pretty addicted. 🙂 It was fun to learn how to make fudge from you! 🙂

I am not much of a candy maker myself. Maybe this would work for me as well as it did for you.

I researched a lot of Maple Walnut fudge recipes before deciding on this one and now after having made it I’m glad I did. This one is excellent! I toasted my walnuts before adding them but other than that, followed the recipe as written. Next time I may add some real maple syrup for a bolder maple taste. I wonder if that would alter the recipe or change it in any way? I’ve eaten way too many pieces, I better send some to the neighbors now. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe. 🙂

29 Suzanne December 19, 2015 at 2:08 am

Great, glad you like the recipe. You could try real maple syrup but I have found that it’s not intense enough in other recipes. I also think it would change the consistency of the recipe and possibly not set up for you. I know what you mean this fudge is pretty addicting. 🙂
