Chocolate Pistachio Fudge



I'm not the best fudge maker, but when I saw this recipe of Nigella's, I knew I could probably pull it off as it looked so easy and delicious.  

Seriously, this stuff is sooooo good, and changing up the darkness of chocolate and/or the type of nuts (or other ingredients) mixed in makes it the most perfect recipe ever!  I think this is going to be my new go-to treat for a very long time!

Ingredients

  • 350 grams dark chocolate (chopped, minimum 70% cocoa solids)
  • 1 x 397 grams can condensed milk
  • 30 grams butter (2 Tablespoons)
  • pinch of salt
  • 150 grams pistachios
Put the chopped chocolate, condensed milk, butter and salt in a heavy-based pan on a low heat, and stir to melt.

Put the nuts into a freezer bag and bash them with a rolling pin, until broken up into both big and little pieces. 


Add the nuts to the melted chocolate and condensed milk and stir well to mix.


Pour and spatch this mixture into a foil tray 23cm / 9 inch square, smoothing the top.

Let the fudge cool, and refrigerate until set. You can then cut it into small pieces approx. 3 x 2.25cm / 1¾ x 1¾ inches. Cutting 8 x 10 / 7 x 7 lines in the tin to give 64 pieces best achieves this.

Once cut, it can be kept in the freezer - no need to thaw just eat straight away.


Hubby doesn't know that I'm keeping ours in the freezer - and he's in love with the stuff!
