I will show you how to make the simplest maple candy.
Out of just maple syrup.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

You will need
One large sauce pan (mine was small, bad mistake)
A maple candy mold or some thing to mold the candy in ( have extra in case)
A wooden, or stainless steel spoon
A candy thermometer
and 1 or more cups of syrup

Step 2: Heating the Syrup

Pour the syrup in a the large sauce pan and turn on heat to 3 or 4

You want the syrup to heat up very slowly. Stir occasionally. 

If heated up to fast it may boil over and make a mess.

This may take a long time but boil the syrup to 235 deg F, not the bubbles.

Make sure to keep the thermometer in the syrup not in the bubbles

Once the syrup is exactly 235 F pull it off the stove and let the temp drop to 175 F with out stirring

Step 3: Turning the Maple Syrup Into Cream

Once down to 175 deg F, stir rapidly till the syrup turns lighter and creamier.

This will take about five minutes.

Step 4: Putting It Into Molds

Once the mixed syrup is cream immediately glop it into the molds.

Once it sort of cool you can dab your finger with water and smoothen the backs.

Step 5: The Candy Is Complete
