White chocolate is melted with sweetened condensed milk to make maple-flavoured fudge. Walnuts make a perfect addition!
As all microwaves differ, the cooking time may vary. You just want to melt it on a medium power.
You can find maple essence in large supermarkets, gourmet deli's and online.
I also had the pleasure of trying this recipe before it became Kitchen Approved. This is my original review ~ Wow Shorecook! This recipe is sinfully delicious! I was in the mood for a melt-in-your-mouth candy for midnight snacking and Redneck Grandma directed me to this recipe. Boy am I glad she did! I toasted my walnuts in a skillet before adding it to the fudge and I used silicone cupcake liners sprayed with a bit of non-stick cooking spray to make individual servings of the fudge. I stuck them in the freezer in an airtight container for about an hour and they were set-up perfectly and ready for eating. It is very hard to stop at just one piece of this delectable fudge. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. - 30 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I had made this recipe before it had become “kitchen approved”. I’m so glad it is now published so many cooks have access to this exceptional recipe. I usually don’t care for fudge that is made with chocolate chips and I believe that is because chocolate chips have paraffin, therefore contain less cocoa butter. However, I decided to try this recipe because the submitter is a talented cook. I am so glad I did. The fudge is fabulous. I used Ghiradelli white chocolate chips and added extra walnuts (personal preference). Fast, easy, and delicious –this recipe is a keeper. - 01 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Best. Fudge. Ever! Seriously, this stuff is amazing! I got the idea from another who made this recipe to use some candy cup papers and I used a small cookie scoop to measure fudge into each cup. The papers peel off easily and you have perfect looking and even tastier fudge! I added some vanilla butternut in place of maple extract. I made a large batch to package up for the bake sale at my daughter's elementary school Halloween Carnival. Huge hit and my go-to recipe! - 27 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
