Chocolate Pistachio Fudge

1

Chocolate Pistachio Fudge is an easy-peasy snack. A great kid-friendly and make-ahead snack or to curb that sweet craving.

Some more kid friendly make-ahead chocolate desserts like molded chocolate, dark mousse.

I have had fudge only once earlier, few years ago and that too just a spoonful. I liked it but nothing to have me sold out. But when I saw this fudge and realised how simple it is, I wanted to give it another go. Also, I had half a tin of condensed milk languishing in my refrigerator for ages.

Sugar syrup or thickening is an art which I have not mastered yet. So I was happy to see a fudge recipe which makes having fudge an easy-peasy task!

The only problem I had was to find a dish to set the fudge in which was deep enough and at the same time not too big to yield a very thin layer. I think I managed a very agreeable thickness. I used a Tupperware small tray for achieving this.

The trick for neat slices of fudge lies in slightly marking them before putting in the refrigerator for setting. After setting it will look just like marks on a Kit-Kat. You can press and break apart neat squares. I stuck to Nigella’s (the Cooking Goddess) recipe, except I halved it as I had only 1/2 a can of condensed milk and I didn’t want 64 squares.

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 30 pieces

Ingredients

  • 175 grams – Dark Chocolate chopped
  • 200 grams – Condensed Milk
  • 1 Tbsp – Butter unsalted
  • a pinch of Salt
  • 75 grams – Pistachios

Instructions

  • Put the chopped chocolate, condensed milk, salt and butter in a heavy bottom pan on low heat. Stir to melt.
  • Put the nuts in a ziplock bag and bash them with a rolling pin, to get coarse pieces.
  • Add the broken nuts to the chocolate mixture. Stir well. Remove from flame.
  • Pour the mixture into a 10 X 6 inch tray. Spatch and smooth the top.
  • Allow the fudge to cool to room temperature. Using a knife, gently mark the fudge with the grid of lines – depending on how small or big pieces you want.
  • Move the tray to refrigerator to set. This will take about 15-20 minutes.
  • Once set, remove from refrigerator and just gently snap-break on the lines you had made earlier.
  • These can be stored in freezer and eaten straight out without thawing.

Notes

Source – Nigella
Use any nut you want – almonds, cashew, hazelnuts, etc
The choice of tray to set depends upon how thick or thin you want the fudge to be.
Don’t bash the nuts too hard or you will tear the ziplock bag.

  1. That’s an easy recipe and the pics look great. But you mentioned that you can snap-break them. Does it mean it’s like the chocolate bars? Coz the fudge I’ve had is usually soft more like a barfi or halwa consistency. Please suggest

    1. Thanks Bhakti. Yes you are right, this is not the gooey type fudge, which is a bit more difficult to get perfect for me. This is sort of a Fudge cheat. :) I hope you enjoy making it.
