Maple Syrup Hard Candy

Maple Syrup Hard Candy Recipe

  • Author: Alana
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 1 lb. of candy 1x


  1. A few drops of vegetable oil
  2. 2 cups pure maple syrup


  1. Prepare the candy mold before heating the maple syrup. Spray it with cooking spray to prevent the candy from sticking when it cools.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring the maple syrup and oil to a boil over medium heat.
  3. When the maple syrup starts to boil, put in the candy thermometer and wait for the temperature to reach 235 degrees Fahrenheit (or 113 degrees Celcius). This should take no more than 30 minutes.
  4. Pour the syrup into a bowl and cool for 10 minutes. Do not exceed this time or else the candy will start to harden and you might have a hard time transferring it to the candy molds. If in case you missed the 10-minute mark and the syrup has started to harden, you can fix it by adding a little bit of water and re-boiling the mixture.
  5. Before pouring the syrup onto the candy molds, stir it to lighten the color. There are two ways you can do this. First, if you have a mixer, beat the syrup on medium-low speed for 1 minute. Or, you can just use a wooden spoon to stir the maple syrup for 5 minutes. The candy will start to appear thick and cloudy as it cools.
  6. Pour the mixture into the candy molds and let it cool completely for 1 hour.
  7. Release the candy from the molds and store in an airtight container.
