Ingredients
  Sugar 400 Gram
  Milk 200 Milliliter
  Unsalted butter 75 Gram
  Maple syrup 120 Milliliter
  Plain chocolate 120 Gram, broken into pieces
  Grated orange rind 2 Tablespoon (Of 1 Orange)
Directions

This is a smooth fudge that hints of maple and the sharpness of orange.
Combine all the ingredients in a heavy saucepan.
Over a gentle heat, stir constantly until all the sugar has dissolved and the butter and chocolate have melted.
Bring the mixture to the boil and cook it to the soft ball stage, 116°C/240°F.
Remove the pan from the heat and dip its base in cold water to arrest further cooking.
Leave the mixture to cool to 43°C/110°F.
Beat the cooled syrup until it just thickens and lightens in colour.
Scrape the fudge into a buttered 20 cm/8 inch square tin.
Smooth over to level the surface.
Leave to set in a cool place.
When firm, cut the fudge into 2.5 cm/1 inch squares.
