4 cups milk (your choice whole-skim)
1/2 cup powdered dry milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 -6 tablespoons sugar (Splenda or honey) = 1/2 cup
1/2 cup yogurt starter (unflavored plain yogurt with active cultures)
Set 1/2 yogurt starter out to warm to room temperature.
Heat the milk to almost a boil.(I like to microwave in a glass bowl for 5 minutes on high then 2 minutes on medium). About 180 degrees. Cool the milk-about 110 degrees- (to a “barely warm”/ babies bath temperature) (cool water bath works well). Add dry milk, vanilla and sweetener of your choice; stir well.
Stir in yogurt starter (do not whip but mix very well!).
“Cook” the yogurt using your preferred method and time (longer makes a firmer, more tart yogurt. I like to cook about 12 hours). Chill 4 hours before eating.

Microwave on high 2 min. Stir. Remove from microwave, add chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Pour into greased 9 x 13 cake pan. Cool at room temperature. Cut into squares. Makes approx. 3 lb.
I use this same recipe for peanut butter fudge, vanilla, and butterscotch. Just substitute the chocolate chips with peanut butter chips or whatever type you are using. When making chocolate fudge, we prefer milk chocolate chips.
