Even though I know how to make fudge at home, I still have to buy fudge on every vacation.

I love the combo of maple and peanut butter. There is something so scrumptious and rich about sinking your teeth into a soft fudge.

And before you even ask….no, you may NOT substitute maple syrup for the maple flavoring in this recipe.

The maple flavoring can be found on Amazon or in your grocery store near the vanilla extract. It’s worth picking up a bottle…because you’ll want it to make these Maple Iced Oatmeal cookies and this Maple Walnut Fudge.

  1. I need a recipe for microwave fudge. The type made with cho chips and confection sugr I in assisted living place.

  2. Do you have a peanut butter candy recipe? Could you do this one but leave out the maple and use vanilla instead?

    1. I do! You can leave the maple out of it if you prefer: https://www.shugarysweets.com/maple-peanut-butter-fudge/

        1. Marshmallow cream is a marshmallow spread instead of the solid cubes. It is sometimes called marshmallow fluff. It can be made from scratch (recipes online) but here in the US it is available by the jar. There are many brands and it can also be purchased through Amazon. I prefer the Kraft brand Jet puffed.

  3. Love your site, can’t wait to make somce fudge for my niece who always said that it made her crazy. She always was in line fot the free samples on the board walk. in Wildwood, NJ. My plan is to to make several kinds for her but to make sure that my sweetie pies(her kids) get their own tins, after they have helped me to make and tasteto see if there is a genetic link into fudge related crazine
    I will wrap it up in a pretty tin and say just for you, you don’t have to share!! I hope that you know that a broken cookie, slice of cake, have no calories because once there is an opening, all of the calories just fall out. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Peace to fellow candy makers.

  4. The  recipe sounds delicious.     Perfect for holiday gifts.   How many ounces in the jar of marshmallow cream?  thanks.

  5. This looks so, so enticing! And yes, maybe it is the heat of summer, but fudge is delicious any time of the year, so I don’t see what should stop us 🙂 

  6. I love the maple and peanut butter combo- these would be so delicious with maple infused peanut butter for extra maple flavor! 

  7. I love going in those little fudge shops for recipe inspiration. Ok, fine and for a piece of fudge…but I’ve never let it melt in the car.  It disappears too quickly for that!
