I must admit this is one of my weaknesses. This year I purchased a thermometer to make the real thing. Time consuming but I think its worth it.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup icing sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup condensed milk
2 cups of 35% cream
Cook ingredients slowly on medium heat until the thermometer reaches 110 C (230 F). Stir constantly towards the end as it tends to start to stick.
Remove from heat and pour into a mixer and add 1 tbsp of butter. Beat for around 10 minutes and pour into a buttered 8×8 square pan or 9×9 square pan.
Let cool and cut into small squares.
Melts in your mouth! Sooooo yummy!
