Maple Penuchie

Almost any kind of maple candy finds favor with the majority of persons, but maple penuchie is especially well liked. Nuts and coconut are used in it, and these improve the flavor very much.


  • 3 cups maple sirup
  • 1/4 teaspoon soda
  • 1 cup milk
  • few grains of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


Into the maple sirup, stir the soda, and add the milk and salt. Place over the fire and boil until a soft ball that can be easily handled will form in cold water or a temperature of 238 degrees is reached on the thermometer. Remove from the fire, add the vanilla, and allow the mixture to become entirely cold. Beat, and when it begins to get thick, add the nuts and coconut. Continue beating until the candy grows stiff but can be poured out. Pour in a buttered pan, cut, and serve.
