Making Maple Candy from Sap

Anyone have some first hand experience making maple candy from their tree sap? I have no problem getting to the syrup stage, but have yet to try going further in the process to make candy.

I've read a few different 'how to' guides, but they all tend to give slightly different directions so I'm wondering if anyone who has actually done it before could offer a few tips or suggestions on what worked best for them.

What temperature do you heat the syrup to? I've seen 225F or all the way up to 246F. Also, how long do you let it cool after boiling it to the correct temperature before starting to stir the mixture? I've read 3-5 minutes one place and 10 another. Does it just depend on the size of the batch? Is there a specific temperature?

Thanks for any input.
