Chocolate Fudge with Pistachios

Chocolate Fudge with Pistachios


It has been a long time since I have had fudge so when I came across this post about a quick chocolate and pistachio fudge I was immediately craving some. I had just discovered pistachios a couple of weeks ago I was really interested in trying them in a chocolate fudge. I know that this is not a recipe for real fudge but it looks like fudge and sounds both tasty and easy. I thought that I had all of the ingredients on hand so I decided to make it right away. It turned out that I only had 2 3.5 ounce bars of dark chocolate so I had to cut the recipe down. The fudge was really easy to make. The hardest part was waiting for the fudge to set! The condensed milk and butter transformed the previously solid chocolate into something that although it felt solid to the touch, it seemed to melt in the mouth. The salty pistachios nicely contrasted the surrounding sweet chocolate. This fudge is supposed to freeze well though I do not think it will last long enough to require it.

Ingredients:
7 ounces (200g) dark chocolate
7 ounces (200ml) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup pistachios (shelled)

Directions:
1. Melt the chocolate into the condensed milk, butter and salt over a double boiler.
2. Mix the nuts into the chocolate.
3. Pour the chocolate into a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
4. Place the fudge into the refrigerator to set.

Oh yum, Kevin! I am not a big fan of fudge - it is too sweet for me. But with pistachios I am sure they are delicious ! They certainly look gorgeous!

Kevin, this looks scarily good. I'd be afraid to have it in the house lest I rapidly eat it all! The pistachios are a nice touch.
