Maple Fudge Toffee Bars and Sweet Eileen’s

Are these homemade Maple Fudge Toffee Bars candy or cookie bars?

Well that’s up to you to decide!  An easy no-bake recipe that has a delicious chocolaty toffee base, smothered in creamy maple fudge.  Want some?

This is a recipe you make on the top of the stove – no baking required!  We love no bake recipes, like our popular Nanaimo Bar Pie Recipe!

I love this simple maple fudge recipe for so many reasons, but I think the biggest reason, besides the out of this world sweetness, is the fact that I can make it on top of the stove and that’s a keeper for trailer life.  If you’ve read my ABOUT page, you will know that my husband Mark and I love the RV life and spend a large part of the year at our trailer in Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada.


In our family, we call this recipe Sweet Eileen’s, after my Mom, Eileen.  Mom was a sweetheart and loved to try out new recipes, just like I do!  I have a huge book full of recipes clipped from newspapers and magazines, some of them go back to the 1950’s.  I am so grateful to have such a legacy.

Mom’s favorite recipes were squares or cookie bars, including this special Maple Fudge Toffee Bar recipe.

The ingredients are probably in your pantry right now, and all you need is a 8″ square pan.
