I decided to give this recipe a go as I like Lindt’s ‘A touch of Sea Salt’ dark chocolate and I thought this would be similar as pistachio’s have quite a salty taste. The fudge wasn’t quite as I expected – as the pistachio nuts I used were quite bland – I used the raw, de-shelled ones from the baking isle. I think next time I would buy them in their shells because I think they taste saltier. However, I’ve found sprinkling a tiny bit of sea salt on the top of this fudge does give it a taste I like that is similar to the Lindt chocolate, and it makes the fudge look pretty impressive too :)
375g packet dark chocolate melts
395g can condensed milk
1 cup unsalted pistachios, shells removed
Put the chocolate, condensed milk, butter and salt in a saucepan and stir over a low heat until melted and well combined. Put pistachios in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Add pistachios to the chocolate mixture and stir well.
Pour the mixture into a 20cm square baking tin that has been lined with baking paper. Smooth the top. Allow the fudge to cool, then refrigerate until set before cutting into pieces.
