Pistachio Chocolates

I tried out this new chocolate recipe this year.  It was great!  It was a perfect addition to the chocolates we gifted at Christmastime.   (It does make a lot.)

Recipe from: Shugary Sweets

3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup heavy cream
pinch of salt
3.5 oz pkg Instant pistachio pudding mix (powder only)
7oz Fluff (marshmallow cream)
11 oz white chocolate
1/4 cup pistachios, shelled, chopped
8oz dark chocolate, melted

In large saucepan over medium high heat, mix butter, sugar, heavy cream and salt. Bring to a rolling boil. Set timer and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

In large mixing bowl, add pudding mix, marshmallow cream and white chocolate. Pour boiling mixture over ingredients. Beat for about one minute until combined and chocolate is completely melted. Fold in pistachios. Pour into a 9inch parchment paper lined square dish.

Now you can make it into fudge or chocolates

For Chocolates, use truffle scoop and form into small balls.  Dip in chocolate. 

For fudge: Melt dark chocolate (either using microwave or double boiler). Spread on top of fudge and refrigerate about 2 hours until set. Cut and enjoy.  (Or serve without the dark chocolate)
