I swear this is the easiest fudge recipe I’ve ever made (it’s cooked in the microwave), and it turns out perfect every time. I found the recipe because I was looking for goat milk fudge recipes, but whole cow milk should work too. It can also be varied to make “dark chocolate” fudge by using ¼ cup regular cocoa and ¼ cup “special dark” cocoa instead of the ½ cup regular cocoa, or to make a peanut butter version by substituting peanut butter for part of the butter. The batch shown is a batch made with the “special dark” cocoa – delicious!
1 lb. powdered sugar
½ cup cocoa
½ cup butter
¼ cup goat milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Grease an 8” x 8” square pan to hold the fudge. Combine the sugar and cocoa in a large microwavable bowl, and make a well in the center. Place cut-up butter and milk in the well – do not stir!
Microwave on high for 2 minutes and add the vanilla. Blend with a stick blender or mixer until smooth. Stir in the nuts and pour into the greased pan. Refrigerate until firm, cut into squares, and serve. I never thought fudge could be this easy and foolproof!
