Maple Walnut Fudge: a classic combination. This is a perfect bite of fudge, you need some today!

Now that we are back in Illinois, we’ve been on the search for our Church home. Visiting churches with the kids and rating them on music, service, sermon and overall feeling.

A couple weeks ago, I think we may have found our new church home. Let me tell you how the sermon started:

Pastor: “Where do you get your recipes.”

Me: “online! Shugary”

Okay. Fine. I didn’t actually say that. Aloud. But I was waiting to hear it from the congregation. How cool would that have been? Haha!!

Actually, the common answer, duh, was church cookbooks.

Yeah, I get many of my recipes from there too!

I thought it would be a sign from heaven though if someone had shouted Shugary Sweets. Or even food blogs for that matter. But, the sermon went on, the music played, and we loved the service!

Now I can’t wait for the first church function that involves food…I need a new crowd to enjoy some delicious treats.

Maple Walnut Fudge is one of the most requested fudge recipes on the blog. I’m constantly emailed and asked on facebook if I have a Maple Walnut Fudge recipe.

Well, friends, the wait is over! It’s here It’s here!!!

And just in time for the holidays too. This will be perfect on your dessert table. Forget cookie trays…start making candy trays. You’ll find lots of recipes here on Shugary Sweets to inspire you!

And, the best part is most of the fudge recipes on the blog here can be made well in advance. Perfect for keeping on hand for those last minute visits! Not to mention I have plenty of fudge-making tips in my guide for how to make fudge.

I’m sharing this recipe over on Food Fanatic today. As the candy contributor, I realize it’s time to share this classic fudge treat! ENJOY!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I love fudge! I have made all kinds from traditional, to peanut butter, to cookies and cream, I will definitely have to try this one out! 🙂

    1. Real maple syrup isn’t as concentrated as maple extract, so you would need MORE to get the flavor needed, which could alter the texture of the fudge.

  2. Have you ever made this recipe without the maple flavoring? Not a maple fan, and just want the white chocolate and walnut flavor. Thank you!

  3. Hi, I’ve never made fudge before sooo this was my first. It came out really yummy but the maple flavor was not very noticeable. I used the amout indicated – the brand is McCormick real maple extract. Did I do something wrong?

    1. I have found that depending on the brand of extract and the brand of white chocolate, you will sometimes see this happening 🙁 Next time, i suggest you add more maple. Sometimes, people HATE when the maple over shadows a recipe, as it can be very intense.

  4. I’ve never made fudge before, but this recipe just looked like a winner. And was it ever! Shared with my book club and then my bible study group and got so many raves! Made another batch for Christmas and got some more fans of this recipe. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. I tried this last year and I am making it again this year. It was such a huge hit…thank you for sharing this recipe. Have a merry Christmas and happy new year to you and yours, from me and mine lol

  6. I am going to quit Pinterest if these annoying ads are not taken down. I thought people put recipes on here to share with others BUT I have tried 6 times to get this Maple Walnut Fudge & all that is readily available are ADS & comments. If the recipe is SO good WHY can’t we get it WITHOUT all the CRAPPY!!!! Advertisements!!!! 

    1. First of all, there is a person here behind the blog, so be kind. Second, if you are on a mobile device, all you have to do is click “read more” and the recipe will be there. Third, the recipe is wonderful. However, this is my business, and I am able to provide FREE recipes to you thanks to those advertisements. Happy holidays. (PS…not sure why you would quit pinterest…because my blog has nothing to do with that,…)

  7. Are the chips listed in the recipe actually white CHOCOLATE chips or white vanilla flavored chips? It seems that chocolate flavored chips would lessen the impact of the maple flavoring.

  8. That would have definitely been a sign it was the right church if someone would have yelled that out. They probably saw you come in the door and were too embarrassed to yell it out 😉 I love finding old church cookbooks to look through…some of the best ones come from there! And this fudge does totally remind me of summers on the beach and all the fudge shops!!!

  9. So glad you found a new church home Aimee! And that sure would have been funny if someone said “Shugary Sweets” I’m sure someone in the congregation was thinking it, even if they didn’t say it out loud!! 😉 I love this fudge. It reminds me of Mackinac Island!! 🙂

  10. This is one of my favorite flavors! I’m so excited you made this!
    Congrats on finding a church. Caring about food is key! 🙂

  11. Loved your church story! Some things are just meant to be! 🙂

    We love all things maple. Looks like a great combination, pinned!

  12. How cool would it of been if they yelled Shugary Sweets. I hope you guys end up liking this church and I’m jealous that they get to taste all of your yummy goodies. I so need to make another type of fudge. I always make chocolate and thats it. 🙂 Happy Weekend. Pinned!

  13. Half of my cookbook collection is made up of church cookbooks:) I just love trying new recipes out on my church family! How neat that you will have a whole new group of people to share the love with:) Maple walnut ice cream was one of my favorites growing up and I’m sure this fudge will be just as delicious.

  14. Can you tell me what brand of marshmallow creme you use? I think this is where my fudge attempts fail. Thanks, maple fudge is my husbands very favorite.

  15. I’m a huge fan of homemade fudge and you always have the best ones! This maple walnut fudge is no exception. I’m dying to try it!
