Delicious!! I love maple syrup, so this was amazing! The first time I made it, I didn't have a candy thermometer. Instead, I had a cup of cool water next to the boiling syrup. Every few minutes while it is boiling, spoon a drop of syrup into the cold water, and if it stays together in a drop, feel it. If it feels a bit like gel, then the syrup is at the right temperature. Again, since I didn't have a thermometer, I just waited 10 minutes before I stirred it. When you get to the third step, it definitely does not take 5 minutes of stirring! It took me about a minute or two. But it is better to pour it into the molds sooner rather than later, because if you wait too long, it hardens in the pot and turns into sugar instead of candy.
