A Nigella Lawson recipe from her new book, which is so quick and easy! After making this recipe, I realised there are so many things you could add to this recipe. It is such a simple and basic recipe which anyone could adapt to suit their own tastes. You could add glace cherries, dried fruits, marshmallows...the list goes on! I am going to use this recipe as a basis now and make different versions! This is such an easy and wonderful recipe.
- 350 g dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 (397 g) can condensed milk
- 30 g butter
- 1 pinch salt
- 150 g pistachios
- Put the chopped chocolate, condensed milk, butter and salt in a heavy-based pan on a low heat and stir to melt.
- Place 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 square, press mixture to the edges of tin and smooth the top.
- Let the fudge cool, and refrigerate until set.
- Cut fudge into small pieces - see note.
- Note - Cut fudge into small pieces approx 3x2.25cm. Cutting 8 x 10 lines in the tin to give 64 pieces.
- Once cut, fudge can be kept in the freezer - no need to thaw, just eat straight away.
Absolutely delicious! This recipe will definitely be on my list of holiday goodies; although, it would be good any time of the year. I love the idea that you can freeze it and partake of it in small bites until it mysteriously disappears and you are drawn to make a new batch. Next time I may add some dried cranberries along with the pistachios. Made for the AUS/NZ Tag Game, September, 2011.
WOW! This is great fudge! I made the recipe as is just to see how it would taste, & I wasn't disappointed! And you're right ~ It lends itself to many variations! Another time I'd like to add dried cherries, but as is, it's extremely nice! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]
