Splendid Maple Candy Crackle [Vegan]

This easy vegan recipe was made by simply cooking maple syrup over a stove top for ten minutes and freezing it.

In the Caribbean we have a dessert similar to this called peanut drops.It’s made by caramelizing sugar over the stove instead of maple syrup and adding in roasted peanuts in place of almonds. Peanut drops are made at home and enjoyed, or sold in town for about one dollar. That’s definitely what I call a cheap thrill.

I pulled from “ma” Indian Caribbean roots when it came to spicing these candies. Cardamom, which is an expensive spice used in Indian cuisine gave these candies a unique warmness.Cinnamon and ginger grounded these candies in the familiar which lead to the over all appeal.
