This easy Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate fudge is creamy, decadent with hidden Orange flavor in it. It takes only a few minutes to make and makes a perfect holiday/Christmas gift.
If you love chocolate and have sudden chocolate craving quite frequently then this recipe is for you. Saying that, if you are a real chocolate lover you must always be having a hidden stash of chocolate in some part of your house. I am telling this because, if you raid my house you would find bars of chocolate in every possible place. My husband loves good dark chocolate and nowadays my 4 yr old gives a company to him.
With so many options available in supermarkets, I never thought of making chocolates at home. I mean why take all the fuss to make your own when you already have so many options available. One day I saw my daughter enjoying some homemade chocolates at her friend’s house. And then I realized that I have never made any chocolates at home. Had some dark Callebaut at home.Being a mother, obviously, I wanted to give my little one something to eat with better nutritional value. So, ended up adding dry fruits and nuts. This chocolate fudge was a real hit not only at home but at D’s office too.
The pictures that you are seeing are my 3 rd batch. The first batch was good but it was not fudgy enough. The second batch came out perfect when I increased the butter quantity a more. But couldn’t photograph them because the weather was horrible. And D was almost impatient to carry them to his office. Finally, Could take pictures of the third batch and half of them were gone next day itself. So I can tell you these fudges are the best and certified by many.
We are almost at the end of the year. With Thanksgiving, Christmas around the corner, these make a perfect Holiday Gift. You can make these ahead as it stores well. I have added Orange zest to it, but adding some candied orange peel is also a good idea.
