“Pure, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth maple candy using only 3 simple ingredients!  This treat is almost like a fudge. I did a test to see how it would hold up sitting out on the counter. This is valuable information.

If you are having a party and wanting to serve these, you need to know if they will stay firm or turn into melted coconut butter blobs. :)  After 24 hours of sitting on my kitchen counter with the temperature in my house set at 68 degrees, they were still firm!

Commercially made maple leaf candy is made by heating maple sap past the syrup stage.   It is then whipped and poured into a mold to become maple candy.  Now we have a raw version and it is sugar-free!  Now, for the mold… don’t laugh at me, but I used a soap mold!  I found it brand-new at a second-hand store for 99 cents. Check your local bakery shop or Michael’s Craft Store for a chocolate mold… or I guess you could check out the soap making aisle in your craft store for a leaf mold.


Yields 1/2 cupMaple Leaf Candies displayed on a wooden table


  1. Soften the coconut butter by placing the container in a hot water bath.
    • Depending on the size of your container this could take 30+ minutes to soften.  You could also place the container inside the dehydrator and set the temp at 145 degrees (F).  Keep an eye on it.  Stir the content of the jar before measuring.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the coconut butter, maple flavoring, and stevia.
  3. Pour into the leaf mold and place in the freezer to harden. Enjoy!

    Hi. This recipe looks so simple but yet so good! I do have one question please. If you said in the “info” that this tastes a lot like fudge, is there a way that this recipe could be incorporated into a cookie recipe? Thanks :)

    This isn’t a recipe. This is eating a hunk of frozen coconut butter

      ooooooh but it is a good frozen hunk of coconut butter! Slightly sweetened, kissed with maple and very pleasing to the eye! It is a recipe. It is a recipe in the raw world that fills our tummies with healthy ingredients, and provides us with a “candy” that can be enjoyed but young and old. Have a blessed holiday Anna… amie sue

    Every summer my parents would buy maple sugar candies
    when we crossed the border into Quebec. Thanks for the memory, Amie Sue!

      It’s fun little memories like that Janice that warm our hearts. I am glad that some so simple might have put a smile on your face. Happy Holidays! amie sue

    These sound great! However, could you use a different flavored extract instead of the maple flavoring for a variation? And would you use the same amount? Thank you so much for your help.

      Hi Patricia…. sure, go ahead and try it… you could easily change into any flavor you want. I would simply start with 1/2 a tsp of it and work it up to the strength of flavor that you want. Have fun with it. amie sue
