Make Ahead Chocolate Pistachio Fudge

Asked by NickyR79. Answered on 26th November 2016

Full question

Love the Chocolate Pistachio Fudge recipe! I was wondering how long it would last in the freezer and how long once out of the freezer? Planning the Christmas baking and want to work out when best to make a couple of batches. Thanks.

Our answer

Nigella's Chocolate Pistachio Fudge (from NIGELLA EXPRESS) is a very easy to make fudge. It does not require boiling, just heating together chocolate and condensed milk and then adding chopped pistachio nuts. The fudge does need to be kept in the fridge and will keep for about 2 weeks.

The fudge also freezes well and can be eaten from frozen. If you are freezing pieces of the fudge then wrap each in a piece of clingfilm and put in a resealable bag or airtight container. If wrapping whole trays then overwrap the trays tightly with a double layer of clingfilm and a layer of foil. The fudge is at its best within a month of freezing, though will keep for up to 3 months. Defrost the fudge overnight in the fridge. As long as it is kept chilled, the fudge should last 10-14 days after thawing. For a more traditional boiled fudge, that does not need refrigeration, you may like to consider Nigella's Vanilla Fudge recipe.
