One of the worst things about the internet is that stuff you rely on can disappear in a minute, with no trace. There probably is a trace, but I don’t know/care enough to find it. But what disappeared on me was where this pin to a great goat cheese fudge recipe went. Instead of telling me how to make these fudge that I made before and enjoyed, it goes to a 404 error page. The worst.

Luckily the pin preview still tells the ingredients, but I don’t know if I even trust that to hang around, so I figured that recreating the recipe steps based on the ingredients is the only way to make this fudge happen again, so here we go.

I decided to make this fudge because I have a weird habit of when I go to CostCo like once every few months, I feel compelled to buy a two-pack of 10,5 ounce logs of goat cheese. That’s 21 ounces of goat cheese! And with how quickly it spoils once the package is opened, it’s like a race to use it and its best to enjoy in large quantities.

  3. Turn the oven (or convection oven) to 350. Spread the pecans on a baking sheet, and let toast in the heated oven for 5-10 minutes or until toasted but not burnt. Set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to beat the room temperature cheeses, cream, and chocolate together.
  5. Add the vanilla extract and powdered sugar, and beat until combined.
  6. Fold in the toasted nuts.
  7. Pour the whole mix into a lightly greased 9×9 pan, or line the pan with parchment paper, then pour in the mix. Use a spatula to smooth the top and get it to fill the pan.
  8. At this point, lightly add nuts or sprinkles to the top as desired.
  9. Refrigerate for several hours until hardened, then remove and cut with a sharp knife.
