How do I substitute maple syrup/agave syrup for sugar in fudge?

I'm specifically trying to make peanut butter fudge using 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of butter, 4 cups of sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. When using maple syrup, it doesn't firm... what do i do?

    You need the sugar texture for the graininess in the fudge, [brown sugar would give a caramelly taste].

    You can't. It will not work.

    I'm no chef but I don't think you'll be able to make fudge using anything else but actual sugar. 

    I don't know how much maple syrup you're using  but if you use very much you'll end up with a thick liquid.

    I guess it would be great as a sauce or as a topping for ice cream.

    use the sugar or find a recipe that calls for syrup...you are not doing anything healthier by using maple syrup, you know. Maple syrup effects the body exactly like plain old sugar does.
