Edible Gifts - Pistachio Choco Fudge


Wow, it is that time of the year where everywhere you turn there are lights, cakes, bakes, chocolate - the whole Christmas preparation with all the trimmings. Time to make edible gifts again... But with no time in hand to do anything really because of my laziness..:)

I want to relax, have a cup of tea, watch TV and play with my daughter - you know just have quality time for myself. At the same time I can't ignore my lovely friends and work colleagues....


I have to give something to you guys for Christmas and I know most of you are real "Chocoholics" and the rest have a liking for chocolate..:) This is my gift for all my blogger friends for Christmas as without your support, nothing is possible..:)


So, this recipe is for all the "Chocoholics" out there..:)) Even my hubby who is not that much into chocolates was impressed with this treat... How do you like that!!!!


This sweet treat barely takes 10 minutes to make and taste superb. I have used dark and white chocolate as the sweet from the white chocolate and bitter taste from the dark chocolate offers just the right balance of sweetness.

Also the streaked appearance of the chocolates is lovely to look at..:)  You can very well double the recipe quantity and make large batches of these edible gifts.


For the recipe:
Dark chocolate : 250 gms.
White chocolate : 100 gms.
Condensed milk: 300 gms.
Vanilla extract: 1 tsp.
Pistachios [unsalted and shelled]: 50 gms.


1. Line a 6in by 9in roasting tray or a square cake tin with baking parchment. Let the papaer overhang the sides lightly.
2.Chop the pistachios coarsely to bits.
3.Put the dark chocolate and the condensed milk in a heat proof bowl and set over a pan of barely simmering water [double boiler method].
4.Stir occasionally and let this mix melt slowly.
5.Meanwhile, take the white chocolate in another heat proof bowl and place it on another pan with barely simmering water.


6.Melt the white chocolate slowly until smooth.
7.Remove both chocolate bowls from heat once smooth and shiny and let the chocolates cool slightly for a couple of minutes.
8. Stir in the white chocolate into the dark chocolate mix.
9.Mix very gently for  a couple of times as the fudge should have a streaked appearance.
10.Empty this into the prepared tray and level the surface. Sprinkle the chopped pistachio nuts on the surface of the fudge.
11.Press lightly, cover and chill for about 2 to 3 hrs.

Cut into squares and present as edible gifts.


Note: This fudge can be store for upto a month in the fridge. If you are putting the fudge into boxes wrap them in tissue first.
You can substitute white chocolate for milk chocolate or make the fudge entirely in one variety of chocolate... it is upto your taste and preference..:)
