Chocolate Fudge with Salted Pistachios


Chocolate Fudge2When it comes to picking a chocolate recipe to make, it is a no brainer at this household. I always pick Ina’s Outrageous Brownies and I am never disappointed. So this time, I surprised myself by craving something chocolate that was not brownies. I wanted fudge. And I didn’t want to switch my oven on. I probably get zero points for creativity but hey, I was not competing in a contest!

Shopping around for recipes, I came across Nigella’s Chocolate Fudge with Pistachio recipe and decided to be daring. When I say daring, I use the word loosely because this is the first Lawson recipe have ever made and am I glad I tried it! These chocolate-y squares are pure heaven and the taste is only magnified by the sweetened condensed milk. Although I do wish I had added a dash of vanilla to the fudge, I didn’t miss it as much as I thought I would have, thanks to the pistachios.
Chocolate FudgeOh, the pistachios! I have a truck-load of salted-roasted pistachios sitting in the refrigerator and this recipe was an amazing way use up some of them. Since my nuts were already salted, I did not add the pinch of salt Nigella’s recipe lists.

I also want to give a shout-out to my sister who has a new-found love in her life now called cooking! She made her first mug brownie last night and reveling in the joy only a midnight cup of dessert can bring you. J, here is another sweat-treat for you to try and just so you know, I am getting ready to accept your gratitude gracefully 🙂

  1. Oooh I’ve appeared on your blog, I feel so spesh! And you know I’m going to go nuts over this 😉 I’ll be sure to try it with a spot of vanilla essence and let you know how it goes. Thank you so much! ❤

  2. Great to see your posts again. Lovely pics too, Vaish!

  3. Yummy!

    Jo, just yesterday, Udai, Pankaja Maami and I went to visit your lovely mom and jan made him a mug cake as a b’ay gift…. That was a taste explosion! Now this promises to be something greater! Wow!!

    • Akka, looks like Jan is becoming quite the mug cake expert 😀 to be very honest, I never perfected the dessert. It would always burn or come out mushy in the middle. Looks like I do need to learn the trick from J.
      What did you guys do for Udhai’s b’day? 😀
