Holiday Spice Tasting Collection - Maple Syrup Gifts
A Tasty Recipe for You
- Vegetable oil cooking spray
- Powdered sugar, for dusting
- 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
- ¾ cup Bourbon, whiskey or rum barrel-aged maple syrup
- 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
- Lindt bittersweet chocolate
- Chocolate sauce
- graham crackers
Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with parchment paper or foil. Coat lightly with cooking spray and dust with powdered sugar.
Add the gelatin to 1/2 cup warm water in a small bowl. Stir until dissolved
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the maple syrup, and the granulated sugar. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture registers 240 degrees on a candy thermometer. Choose a pot that is fairly deep to prevent boiling over.
Remove from the heat, pour into the bowl of a standing mixer and add the dissolved gelatin. Using the paddle attachment, beat until stiff peaks form, about 15 minutes. Pour into the prepared dish scraping out the last bits with a rubber spatula and spread in an even layer. Let cool at room temperature until firm, about 4 hours.
Pull the marshmallow out of the pan using the lining or a spatula. Cut into squares of desired size. You can dust the squares with extra confectioners’ sugar to keep them dry.
Place a square or two of graham cracker on a dessert plate. Put a marshmallow on top, add a piece of chocolate and then top with a little extra chocolate sauce. Place another graham cracker on top to make a sandwich.
Runamok Maple produces infused, smoked and barrel-aged maple syrup along with our pure maple, which we call, Sugarmaker’s Cut. We love pure maple syrup but have discovered that the potential for taking it in new directions is limitless. Maple marries exceptionally well with a variety of flavors. Some of them are tried and true like cinnamon and vanilla and some are unexpectedly out of this world, like our original Makrut lime-leaf. And our barrel-aged syrups have taken this North American treasure to a whole other level.
We are constantly working on new recipes to highlight the unique flavors in our syrups, and have gathered them here, on our website, for you to try. We hope you will explore it for ideas as well as information about our operation.
