Instructions Checklist
  • Grease a 9-inch square pan.

  • Beat sugar into goat milk in a large, heavy pot; bring to a rapid boil, stirring continually to prevent burning, and cook, stirring constantly, until dark and thick, 30 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the mixture should read at least 245 degrees F (118 degrees C).

  • Stir peanut butter, butter, and vanilla extract into the milk mixture immediately upon reaching temperature. Continue to stir until the peanut butter and butter melt completely, the color is uniform, and the mixture appears smooth and glossy; spread into the prepared pan. Cool fudge to room temperature before cutting.

Cook's Note:

Use unsweetened peanut butter. If the peanut butter is salt-free, add a teaspoon of sea salt with the butter.

I had some goat milk that I wanted to use, and came upon this recipe. I started this in a saucepan, and very quickly changed to a dutch oven type pot. When this first starts to boil, it will boil up fast, and can potentially make a huge mess on your stove. Use a pot much bigger than you'll think you'll need. The mixture took about 20 minutes to reach 245 degrees, and yes, it's a LOT of stirring, but well worth it! It's a very tasty fudge!!! Read More

Lots of stirring, but can't wait for it to cool. What I've had from the spatula was great. I crushed up an Endangered Species oat milk and dark chocolate bar and used 2 1/2 cups of peanut butter powder. Read More
