Goat Milk Fudge Recipe Collection

This goat milk fudge recipe collection has something for everyone--choose from chocolate pecan, peanut butter or a delicious white fudge recipe.

Fudge recipes are probably the best-known candy recipes associated with goat milk. Fudge is universally beloved by those with a sweet tooth, and the many varieties assure that there's something for everyone &mdash from chocolate lovers to peanut butter "nuts"!

Fudge is best known for its creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture, and the unique fat composition of goat milk adds an extra, silky smoothness.

If you have your own favorite fudge recipe, try substituting the same amount of goat milk for cow's milk. You should be able to substitute evaporated milk or whole goat milk for each other by using a ratio of approximately 3/4 cup evaporated milk for each cup of whole milk. You'll probably find that the result is a smoother candy, with just a touch of that lovely, unique goat milk flavor.


If this is your first time making a goat milk fudge recipe, here are a few tips to help.

  1. Don't rush the cooking &mdash if you remove the mixture from the heat too soon, your fudge will not harden.
  2. Monitor the heat carefully so that the mixture doesn't boil over.
  3. For a molded candy look, try using an ice tray instead of a pan. Spray the tray with cooking spray, spread in the fudge mixture, and let cool. Let sit for a minute in slightly warm water. Turn over a cookie sheet and gently twist, then shake your fudge "ice cubes" out. Slice between them with a sharp knife if the tray was completely filled. (See picture under Peanut Butter-Maple Fudge recipe.)

Chocolate fudge chunks

Chocolate Pecan Fudge


  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup goat milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix the cocoa powder, sugar and milk together in a pan. Heat on medium to medium-high heat, stirring to be sure the sugar is completely dissolved. Bring to a slow boil, and cook until the mixture reaches a soft ball stage, or 234° F. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.

Remove from heat and stir in the butter, pecans and vanilla extract. Beat by hand until the mixture becomes thick and glossy. Spread into a greased 8" x 8" pan. Cut into squares when cool, or slide the entire square out and break into pieces for a truly homemade appearance.

Peanut butter fudge cubes

Peanut Butter-Maple Fudge


  • 1 cup goat milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter (any style)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp. maple flavoring

Combine the sugar and milk in a pan, and heat over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Continue cooking at a slow boil, stirring often, until the mixture reaches the soft ball stage, or 234° F.

Remove from heat, and stir in the butter, peanut butter, vanilla and maple flavoring. Beat by hand until thick and smooth. Pour into a greased 8" x 8" pan, and cut when cool.

White goat milk fudge with cherries and pecans

White Fudge Recipe

This white fudge recipe was sent in by Jacque from San Bernardino. I tried one batch with candied cherries, and another with pecans, and they were both delicious. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!


  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. goat milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 c. marshmallow creme
  • 1/2 c. chopped candied fruit (cherries, plums) or chopped nuts: optional

Combine sugar, milk and salt in a 2 quart saucepan with buttered sides. Heat and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil.

Cook to 238º F, stirring only when needed. Immediately remove from heat.

Add butter, and cool to 110º F without stirring. Add vanilla. Beat vigorously until mixture begins to hold its shape.

Add marshmallow creme, and beat until fudge becomes very thick and starts to lose its "shine." Quickly stir in fruit or nuts, and spread in buttered pan.

Makes about a pound. I like to double the recipe plus add fruit and nuts.

Thanks, Jacque, for a great recipe!
