Vegan Vanilla Maple Fudge

Vegan Maple Fudge Recipe - Just 2 Ingredients!I was curious to see if I could make some hard candy using just maple syrup, so I did some experimenting and ended up with something much softer, creamier and crumblier – fudge! When boiled, cooled and whipped, the maple syrup turns soft and creamy, resulting in a melt-in-your-mouth fudge candy. The dark sweetness and subtle maple flavour makes this a unique but familiar tasting candy that is super easy to make, uses only 2 ingredients and is vegan-friendly too!

Vegan Maple Fudge Recipe - Just 2 Ingredients!The fudge mixture isn’t particularly easy to use with molds, and so my star shapes came out a little “battered” looking. But it didn’t matter because they were soon all eaten anyway! But if you’re making this for a gift, I would recommend a clean shaped mold without engravings or mold into a large slab and cut into squares.

Vegan Maple Fudge
Cook time
Total time
Makes approx 16 pieces of fudge
Serves: 16
  • 250g / ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  1. Pour the maple syrup into a medium saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Use a candy thermometer to read the temperature, letting it boil until it reaches 110c / 235f. Once it reaches this temperature, remove from the heat.
  2. Let the pot cool to 80c / 175f, without stirring. Then stir the mixture rapidly with a wooden spoon or spatula. Keep stirring and after about 5 minutes, the mixture will thicken, lighten and become creamy. Stir in the vanilla.
  3. Once it's thickened and the colour looks like a golden fudge colour, work quickly to transfer the mixture into your molds, as it will set fast. Leave the fudge in the molds to cool completely before removing. Keep the fudge in an air tight tin for up to 1 month at room temperature. Enjoy!

        I’m sure it is pretty good–there’s really not much difference between the batter for toad-in-the-hole and waffles. I just think it’s weird since I usually serve a side salad or cabbage or something like that. Doesn’t seem to bother him!

      It was tricky to get a clean shape with those molds but I love the star shapes too. Makes eating them even more fun :-)

      Can’t believe I forgot to mention the vanilla, sorry! I’ve added it now… you add it at the end of step 2. Hope you get to try it, let me know how it turns out :-)
