Try this link      http://www.yankeemagazine.com/recipe/for/marions-maple-butternut-fudge/13164

I love Yankee magazine for maple recipes.  We have a Maple Walnut pie using their recipes and it was sooo good!  Sort of like a Northern version of   Southern pecan pie but with real maple syrup and walnuts instead.  It says to add butternuts for this fudge recipe but they aren't really available anymore so try walnuts.  Good luck and happy baking.  Hope this helps.

I found this one and have printed it with the changes that people suggested.  The recipe is from one I found on All Recipes.
Maple Walnut Fudge
2 Tb butter
2/3 Cup Evaporated Milk
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
3/4 Cup brown sugar
2 Cup mini marshmallows
1 bag, 12 ounces white chocolate chips
1/2 Cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 tsp maple extract
50 walnut halves
Line 13X9 pan with parchment, allow 2 inch over hang on 2 sides.
In saucepan combine butter, milk, sugar.  Boil for 4 to 5 minutes stirring constantly.
Stir in mini marshmallow and chocolate chips and nuts and maple flavoring.  Stir until marshmallows and chips have melted.
Pour into prepared pan.
Place walnut halves on top of fudge, spacing 1/2 inch apart.  Press into fudge.
When cooled and set lift fudge from pan and cut into squares one walnut half on each square.

There were a few other recipes but this one looked the best.  It sort of follows the one I always use with the evaporated milk and marshmallows.  It never fails....pretty sure that's how it got it's name!

The recipe as written on the site uses just white sugar but several reviews I saw said to use a mixture of brown and white for more flavor.  I think the brown will give it a better flavor but will result in a darker colored fudge.  Not sure if that will matter to you.

Hi Tonya - welcome to VBB.

Nikki -- I don't have any maple extract.  Sheeeesh lady - you cost me a lot of money/  You're always posting super sounding, super working recipes and I have to go spend money on ingredients.

Nancy, don't worry about the maple extract..when would you ever use it again?  If you wanted to try this recipe I would use a bit more brown sugar.  That will give you a bit more flavor than the white sugar.  You could use a bit of maple syrup as part of the sugar but since it is a liquid I am not sure how it would react with the cooking.  But if it is just a bit like the extract at the end of the cooking I am pretty sure the flavor would not cook out.
I think the fudge would taste great made with the brown sugar much more intense flavor but you will have a darker fudge.  Just add more walnuts and toast them to bring out more flavor.

Ingredients:

4 cups granulated sugar 
1/2 cup butter 
3/4 cup genuine maple syrup 
1 cup milk 
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows 
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts) 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Preparation:

Butter a 9-inch square baking dish.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, butter, maple syrup, milk, and miniature marshmallows; cook, stirring occasionally, until the candy or digital thermometerreaches 235 degrees F. or until it forms a soft ball when a little of the mixture is dropped in cold water. Remove from heat.

Let cool to 115 degrees F; add nuts and vanilla extract. With an electric mixer at medium speed, beat until mixture loses its gloss and starts to harden around edge of saucepan. Pour into prepared baking dish. Cool completely. Cut into squares.

Yields 36 squares or 1 1/4 pounds. 

Hope this help

I think I'd go with the maple extract, with the price of genuine maple syrup.  Also there's not many places one can buy real maple syrup except in Maine and probably Vermont

Nikki,  Thanks for the great recipe.  Lucky, I got some maple extract when I
was in IN this fall.

Judy, I agree!  Maple syrup is very expensive. We have it at Costco but it
really is expensive. I will try the extract.

I have pure maple syrup in the 'fridge.   It's been there a long time - wonder if it's still good.

Him Marie - welcome to VBB.  Thanks for the recipe.  Got any more ;-)  ??

Isn't it amazing how when you lose track of a recipe you love, be it from your mother, mother-in-law, grandmother or whomever, it really touches a nerve.  Glad Maryann and Frances were able to recover a lost recipe!

This happened with one my mother-in-law had but fortunately, our daughters loved their grandmother's cookie recipes and had their own copy of it.  I have the recipe again, hurrah.
