Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sweetened condensed milk until light and fluffy.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating until well incorporated. Stir in the maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. The mixture should be thick and spreadable, adding more powdered sugar if needed.
  3. Fold in the chopped nuts until evenly distributed.
  4. Optional Chocolate Coating:
  5. 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  6. 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  7. Melt chocolate chips and vegetable shortening in a double boiler or heatproof bowl set over simmering water, stirring constantly, until smooth.
  8. Drop tablespoons of the maple nut mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  9. Drizzle or dip the maple nut candies in the melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until chocolate is set.
  10. Tips:
  11. For a richer maple flavor, use dark brown sugar in place of some of the powdered sugar.
  12. If the mixture is too sticky, add more powdered sugar, one tablespoon at a a time.
  13. Get creative with the nuts! Almonds, peanuts, or a mixture of nuts can be used instead of pecans or walnuts.
  14. The maple nut candies can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
