Yes, but be sure to cook it down to the same consistency as corn syrup.

I've been subbing it for years.

Good to know. Thanks ChefJune.

Maybe I'll have to get a small bottle of corn syrup. It's been so long since I used it that I can't say I remember the consistency. It's thicker than maple syrup, right?

Not really thicker, but definitely more viscous.

Yeah, viscous, that's what I should have typed.

Honey can also be a substitute for corn syrup.

Thank you!

I was wondering if a substitute would work in fudge. It says specifically that molasses shouldn't be substituted for corn syrup in fudge recipes, so I assume that means the others would work. Honey is perfect.

You're both welcome. I would use so little corn syrup, it wouldn't make sense to get a bottle of it for my too small pantry.

Stick around Bighogie, you'll really like it here. Welcome!
