Chocolate Pistachio Fudge recipe…

Chocolate Pistachio Fudge

Prep time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 60

Perfect for giving away as edible gifts
  • 350 g chopped dark chocolate - minimum 70% cocoa solids
  • 397g can condensed milk
  • 30g butter
  • pinch salt- I use sea salt....a lovely taste against the chocolate when it hits you
  • 150g pistachios
  1. Melt the chocolate, condensed milk, butter and salt in a heavy based pan over a very low heat stirring continuously.
  2. With the nuts in a freezer bag bash them with a rolling pin so you have big and little pieces.
  3. Add the nuts to the melted mixture and stir well to mix.
  4. Pour into a tray 23cm square and smooth the top.
  5. Cool in the fridge until set. Then cut into small pieces.
  6. Once cut this can be kept in the freezer and eaten warned it's very moreish and easy to pop one in your mouth every few minutes.


This makes a brilliant present and would be a fab inexpensive Christmas present for teachers.

Here I have wrapped 10 pieces of fudge in a cellophane bag, tied up with a pretty ribbon. Then placed them in a little tin bucket which I have decorated with ribbon and raffia.

Now remember, no eating all at once, you are liable to feel very ill! 😉

  1. Mrs Greedy here salivating most unpleasantly and about to elbow anyone out of the way in search of ingredients. Sounds most fab.

  2. This looks so yummy. I will come up with a reason to make it with the kids immediately – even if we just have to force ourselves to eat it all and not give any as presents!

  3. Made this a couple of years ago for my son’s teachers at Christmas. It is incredibly yummy and very easy. I wrapped in coloured cellophane as it was all I had to hand and tied with gold ribbon.

  8. Nice combination. I’m going to have to test that out this weekend. Pistachios are my krytonite. Once I start I can’t stop!

  11. Ooooh lovely! I was just thinking the other day I wanted to try to make home made fudge. My dad always used to make it for Christmas! This recipe does seem really easy, I always thought fudge making would be difficult!
