Measure two cups of granulated sugar into a heavy duty plastic bag. Form a depression in the sugar and drop in 1/2 teaspoon imitation maple flavoring. The sugar will absorb the liquid flavoring. Seal the bag and place inside a second bag if necessary.
When ready to serve, mix the sugar with one cup of boiling water and stir until the crystals are dissolved. Reheat if necessary. (When we make this at home, we add corn syrup for a thicker syrup.)
