Duke Caboom’s Maple Candy

We haven’t even met Duke Caboom on the big screen yet, but I couldn’t resist making something in honor of his character. I hope Canada’s Greatest Stuntman would approve of this classic candy made with just two ingredients: maple syrup and butter. It doesn’t get much sweeter—or simpler—than this recipe. This candy is a classic in New England and Canada and is the essence of the pure taste of maple syrup!

The traditional shape of this maple candy is a maple leaf (click here for Maple Leaf mold and here for the small Mickey shaped mold), but you could use any shaped silicone candy mold you wish.

Ingredients

2 cups pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon butter

Directions

 

Pour the syrup into a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, place it over medium heat, and bring it to a boil. Make sure that you have a saucepan large enough so that it will not easily boil over the top.

Insert a candy thermometer and add the butter to the syrup, stirring until the butter is fully melted and incorporated.

Continue to cook the candy until it reaches 240 F on the candy thermometer (soft-ball stage) and remove from the heat.

Allow to cool for 2 minutes, then stir the candy vigorously with a wooden spoon until it thickens, lightens in color, and turns opaque, which should take about 2 to 3 minutes. Stop stirring once it reaches this point because if you continue to stir, it will start to set in the pan and be difficult to pour into the molds.

Working very quickly, pour the candy into the candy molds and smooth the tops with a small offset spatula.

Once the candy is poured, it will quickly start to set. Let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes.

Then pop them out of the molds onto a flat surface. Store the candies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.

Be sure that you are using heat-safe candy molds and not just plastic molds intended for chocolate.
