Chocolate Pistachio Fudge -prepared in three minutes :)
« on: December 27, 2013, 02:03:12 am »
This is a recipe that I've made many many times pre TMX. I finally got around to converting the recipe and it is just so easy, that I think you would be able to make it within three minutes of stepping within the kitchen door! Originally a recipe from "Nigella Express", I've adapted it for Thermomix cooking. As Nigella states in the book, it is not a 'true' fudge in confectioner's terms. But is incredibly yummy all the same :)

Ingredients:
160g pistachios (cashews are yummy too, but the green in the pistachios looks pretty, candy canes are also good)
350g dark chocolate, in pieces
400g sweetened condensed milk
30g butter
pinch of salt

Method:

1.   Place the pistachios in the bowl and turbo for one second. Check to see if you like the texture, if you do, transfer the nuts to a small bowl. If not, continue to turbo for one second at a time until the nuts are how you like them.

2.   Put the condensed milk, chocolate, salt and butter in the bowl and cook 2mins/70oC/Sp3

3.   While cooking, roughly line a slice tray with baking paper (unless if you are using silicone, you probably don't need to)

3.   In the final 10-20 seconds of coking time, pour in all but a tablespoon of the nuts into the bowl.

4.   Transfer the mixture into the lined tray, sprinkle with reserved nuts and gently press them onto the chocolate goodness :)

5.   Chill until the 'fudge' has set...ok so not technically 3 minutes here, but at least the preparation is done!

6.   Slice into small pieces.

Nigella suggests that this can be stored in the freezer and is equally delicious when served frozen.

These sound lovely, thanks for the recipe Jamberie. 
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Jamberie we have almost finished all the fudge I made. Now of course I really must try this. It sounds delicious.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

No worries! I hope you like it :)

Yes, I think you really must! One can never run out of fudge (and this one is particularly dangerous because it can be eaten straight from the freezer  :o )

It does!  I think my family would like this, so will make very soon.  :D

I look forward to hearing what you think Julie :)

I'm so pleased you like it :) Great tip about the freezer Courton, but I think that would be too dangerous for me :D :D

Thank you for a great recipe.  It's much more like a ganache or a truffle than a fudge, but all the better for that!  I made it exactly as in the recipe, for guests coming, and it was a huge hit.  I'm going to have to put the leftovers into the freezer to stop me eating them all from the fridge!

Glad you and your guests enjoyed it Siren :) yes, it is a lot like ganache or truffle... but be warned it's good from the freezer too :)
