Dark Chocolate Pistachio Pantry Fudge Dark Chocolate Pistachio Pantry Fudge

Yesterdays’ recipe was for a really delicious, though a bit complicated dessert.  Today’s recipe couldn’t be more different! This is the perfect recipe to get your kids involved – in fact with a little adult supervision M (8) was able to make this all by himself. I brought some of this fudge to a book group to test it out and the ladies gave it a thumbs up! Plus it’s chocolate – you can’t go wrong.

Pantry Fudge

This is called pantry fudge because chances are good you’ll have everything in your pantry!


  • 12 oz dark chocolate (we used about 15 mini Hershey Dark Chocolate bars)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of nuts
  • Finely grated sea salt for garnish

M and Chocolates

Open all of the chocolates and place into a heavy bottom pan.  Turn the heat to medium and add the butter and condensed milk. Mix until smooth.


Kids love this part – add the nuts (I used a mix of pistachios and almonds) to a ziploc bag.  Use a rolling pin to smash the nuts.  Don’t let them go too overboard because you’ll want some pieces left – not just powder!

Pistachio Fudge

Combine the chocolate with the nuts.  Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper (tinfoil works in a pinch) and pour out the chocolate.  Smooth the top and sprinkle with sea salt.  Pop into the freezer for 1 hour until the fudge is firm.  Remove from the freezer and cut into small cubes.  This is very rich – remember small pieces! It can then be put into a freezer tight container and pulled out anytime!

    This looks and sounds so delicious! Small bites? Yes, but no doubt one after the next in quick succession. I love the crunch and flavor the nuts add. A great treat and who doesn’t love the simplicity?
