As a kid, pistachios were pretty much the only nut that I liked. Of all the nuts in the world, I liked pistachios and nothing else, which I’m sure had something to do with the fact that we usually had pistachios in the house because my parents liked them. The one downside: pistachios are surprisingly expensive. Actually, all nuts are pretty expensive (in my opinion).
I decided to splurge on a package of pistachios to make this white chocolate pistachio fudge, and I’m glad I did because it came out AWESOME. I packed the fudge full of pistachios so you get it in every bite, which I think is important with any kind of fudge add-in. Plus, I love anything that can be made with only four ingredients. It makes it so easy, and using the balance of white chocolate and condensed milk keeps it perfectly soft and smooth. For anyone who loves nuts, white chocolate pistachio fudge is a really easy-to-make treat, and it’s perfect for holiday gifting!
- 3 cups white chocolate chips
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup unshelled pistachios
Line a 9 x 9 in pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
In a large saucepan on low heat, stir together the condensed milk and white chocolate chips. Stir with a whisk until the chocolate has completely melted into the condensed milk and no chunks remain. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and pistachios. Pour fudge into the lined container and sprinkle with additional pistachio chunks if desired.
Let chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours or overnight to harden and then pull the parchment out of the pan and cut into pieces. Once hardened, the fudge will keep at room temperature, but I still recommend storing it in the fridge for best results. Put pieces into a cute little tin and it makes a great gift for Christmas!
