    Bring a taste of breakfast to your candy making! Maple Buttermilk Truffles are white chocolate truffles with the tangy taste of buttermilk and the sweet flavor of maple. To reinforce the breakfast connection I topped each with a mini waffle-patterned cookie, but that step is completely optional.

    Maple syrup and toasted pecans make this smooth fudge taste like autumn! I sometimes like to chop the pecans very finely, so that they are speckled throughout the fudge, but you can leave them in larger chunks if you prefer.

    Maple leaves are made from pure maple syrup with a touch of butter. The result is a sweet candy with an intense maple flavor. If you're a true maple lover, I recommend using the darker Grade B syrup for a more robust maple taste.
