Chocolate Pistachio Fudge (Recipe from Nigella Lawson)

Chocolate Pistachio Fudge (Recipe from Nigella Lawson)


350 grams dark chocolate (chopped, minimum 70% cocoa solids) Dark chocolate available @ Nuts N' Spices and Currim Bhoys, Chennai.

1 x 397 grams can condensed milk

30 grams butter

pinch of salt

150 grams pistachios

Cup measurement

12 oz bittersweet chocolate (chopped, minimum 70% cocoa solids)

1 x 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

2 tablespoons butter

pinch of salt

1 cup 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 this mixture into a foil tray 23cm / 9 inch square, smoothing the top.

Let the fudge cool, and refrigerate until set (or overnight). 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. Recipe from Nigella Lawson.
