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 recipes, and found it on a goat keeping forum.
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 batches shown are made with the “special dark” cocoa (one with nuts and one without) – delicious!
- 1 lb powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup whole goat or cow milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
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 or package for gifting.
