"This recipe goes back about 40 years. My father loved anything with maple flavoring, so my mother tweaked a brownie recipe to suit his tastes. She would be so happy to know her recipe is still being made after all these years." –Betsy King, Duluth, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 7-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons shortening

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine milk and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until butter is melted. Place the confectioners' sugar in a large bowl; add milk mixture and beat until smooth. Stir in the walnuts, maple flavoring and vanilla. Roll into 3/4-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  2. In a microwave, melt the chips, bittersweet chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip balls into chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container.
<B>Editor’s Note:</B> Shape and freeze the balls of maple candy for up to 2 months if desired. Thaw candy before dipping into melted chocolate mixture.
