I love chocolate, I love Baileys and I love condensed milk (by the spoonful!) but then throw pistachios in too – then I’m as happy as a pig in mud! :)
Recipe converted to be made in the Thermomix from Eatgood4life website.
- 150g shelled pistachios
- 1000g white chocolate melts (yes 1kg!)
- 400g condensed milk
- 130g Baileys Irish Cream
- Line a slice tin with baking paper.
- Place pistachios into TM bowl and chop 3 sec / speed 5 (you still want large bits). Set aside.
- Place 200g chocolate into TM bowl and grate 10 sec / speed 9. Set aside and repeat in 200g lots setting aside..
- Add chocolate, condensed milk and Baileys and mix 10 sec / speed 3. Scrape down and cook 10 mins / Varoma / speed 2.
- Add pistachios and mix 10 sec / speed 3 / Reverse.

Hi Leonie, can the Baileys be substituted for Limoncello?
Hi Lesley I haven't tried it but it certainly would be worth giving a try! I'd love to hear how it goes.
I'm making this today for Christmas pressies. Does it need to be stored in the fridge or can I store it at room temperature ( like fudge you see in shops) -0and if so, for how long?
Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
Hi Irene, I think it really depends on the climate that you live in. I tend to always keeps my fudge in the fridge in the summer months. It will also last in the fridge for a good couple of months.

You're kidding, right? How does that happen?
I store it in the vegetable crisper so my family don't find it!! lol! ;)
Can this be frozen please????
Yes it sure can be frozen! :)
This looks and sounds totally naughty and delectably delicious! Please, does anyone know if it can be frozen and still be great after?.....I'd like to make it ahead if i can freeze it preferably. TIA
Yes it freezes well! :)

Rich, decadent and totally delicious :-)
I added 100g cranberries this time to make it for Christmas, but it still tastes great when I've made it without them :-)
This is one of my favourite fudges :-)
Thanks Leonie for another awesome recipe :-)
I love the idea of the cranberries being added Janet! :)
I just had a quick query about the cranberries, did you replace the pistachios with cranberries or did you have both? Thank you
Would the recipe work without the nuts?
hmmmm Melissa I'm not sure - I really do think the pistachios make it. The recipe would work I'm sure but just may not taste as good. :(
