Chocolate Pistachio Fudge

Pistachio F
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
30g butter
Pinch salt
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.
