Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

As if you need one more reason to run right out and get dairy goats..... FUDGE!

Oh golly - I don't even have any pictures.... but wow! You have got to hear about goat milk fudge. Sure I knew about it - but I'm not really a fudge kind of person. Or so I thought.

Roll Farms shared this a while ago... I hadn't really thought about it but yesterday it got the better of me.

These super easy instructions might make purists cringe.. but the rest of us are digging in:

1 lb. Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup Cocoa
1/2 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Goats Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 Cup Broken pecans or walnuts

Combine Sugar and cocoa thoroughly in a large microwavable bowl by sifting it together. Make a well in the center of the mixture.  Place cut up butter and milk in the well.  


Microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Remove and add vanilla, stirring to blend. Stir in nuts and put into buttered dish or pan.

Mine never really made it to the "pour into a buttered pan" stage... mostly I just stood there and ate it out of the bowl with a spoon.

And then I had it for breakfast this morning.

What are you waiting for? Go and find a dairy goat! Quick!

My goats don't have milk. This recipe looks so good think I will try it with combination of cream and milk!

I could see me standing in the middle of the kitchen eating the whole darn batch - sounds yummy and nothing better that goats milk.
