Making fudge is only as hard as you make it. This simple recipe is pretty much screw up free. Your arm will get a little tired during the stirring phase. So, I suggest having a team mate to tag in and out with. If you must do it yourself you can do that too, I have with no problems.
- 4 cups white sugar
- 2 cups goat milk
- 1 cup unsweetened peanut butter
- 3/4 cup real butter
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup peanuts
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 9-inch square pan
- wisk or rubber spatula
- sauce pan
- measuring cups
- measuring spoons
- Add milk to the sauce pan and beat in the sugar.
- Bring to a rapid boil, stirring constantly to prevent scalding, and cook until the mixture becomes dark and thick (30-45 minutes).
- Check the center of the mixture with the thermometer until it reads 245 degrees F (118 degrees C).
- Stir in peanut butter, butter, and the vanilla as soon as it reaches temperature. Continue to stir till everything is all mixed and melted together.
- The color will become uniformed and the mixture will become smooth and shiny; pour mixture into a greased 9-inch pan or line with wax paper.
- Top with the walnuts, chocolate chips, peanuts, or your choice of toppings.
- Allow the fudge to cool to room temperature then cut to size.
Now you have wonderful delicious goat milk fudge! Other optional toppings include: Mini marshmallows, butterscotch chips, mint chip, or even M&Ms.
