Our Favorite Recipes

These are goat milk recipes that we highly recommend, since they are delicious, and they help spread the joy of goat milk products:

Chocolate Goat Milk Fudge
  • 2 1-oz squares unsweetened chocolate (You may substitute 1/3 cup cocoa and 3 Tbsp butter for unsweetened chocolate)
  • 3/4 cup fresh goat milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp light corn syrup
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Melt chocolate in milk. Add sugar and corn syrup; cook slowly, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Cook gently to softball stage (234 degrees Fahrenheit), stirring frequently. Remove from heat; add butter and cool at room temperature until lukewarm (110 degrees Fahrenheit) without stirring. Add vanilla; beat vigorously until fudge becomes thick and loses its gloss. Quickly spread in buttered pan. When firm, cut into squares. Makes about 2 dozen.

This recipe is so good, my mom was hesitant about drying off the goats for the winter, since she didn't want to wait until spring for goats milk again. Must freeze milk so we can make this in winter.

Chocolate Pudding
  • 3 cups fresh goats' milk
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch (can substitute with 4 tablespoons flour)
  • 2 tsp butter or margarine
  • 2 tsp vanilla
In a heavy medium saucepan stir together the flour, sugar, and cocoa powder. Stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is thick and bubbly. Cook and stir for another minute. Remove from heat; add butter and vanilla.
