Pistachio Fudge

Pistachio Fudge topped with Dark chocolate Ganache
Oh sweet pistachio fudge. I made two batches of this fudge. The first batch was delicious, but didn’t have quite enough pistachio flavor for me. So I made a second batch. All in the name of providing all of you a top notch recipe.
You’re welcome. This is one flavorful fudge. My husband who doesn’t like pistachios even enjoyed this fudge. Go figure!

I had to send this one out of the house immediately though, as having eaten the first batch alone (or most of it anyways), I couldn’t be trusted with a second pan of this fudge!
Don’t be scared either, no candy thermometer involved in this recipe!

I’m always instantly attracted to white (or green!) fudge, and the chocolate glaze on top of this one just makes it better. I’ve never seen a recipe that uses pistachio pudding, I’ll have to go track some down, although I don’t know that I’ve ever seen it. Thanks!

I love that pudding, but I haven’t had it in years. I’m thinking this fudge is the perfect way to reintroduce it into my life:-)

I love a good piece of fudge! Pistachios remind me of Christmas because my parents used to fill the toes of our stockings with the fun little green nut! This fudge is right up my alley! Thanks for sharing!

Aimee! I just found this recipe via pinterest. I am so delighted that it is yours b/c then it MUST be a winning fudge recipe – i have yet to make fudge using fluff as part of the base. I love pistachio desserts, so so so much!! Love this recipe girl! :)

I am a cooking teacher and did the pistachio fudge with my students for a candy display we were doing to promote our department. They didn’t think they would like it when I said the word “pistachio” but they loved it! They were fighting over the last piece. We also did the cookies and cream fudge and strawberry swirl. They said the strawberry swirl tasted like ice cream. Thank you for your ideas, the kids loved it and everyone thought it looked beautiful!

I’ve traveled with fudge before. I usually put it in an airtight container. This fudge is okay not refrigerated for those 5 hours (unless it’s 100 degrees and it will get melted).

I just got done enjoying this amazing recipe…sooo yummy…and i agree that even those who do not like pistachio pudding or even he nuts will like this anyway if they give it a shot.

What a disappointment! Two different batches with expensive Lindt chocolate and both separated into a disgusting mess. What went wrong?
