  • 1/2 cup salted shelled pistachios
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup (220g/7.8 oz.) semi-sweet / dark chocolate chips


  • Roughly Chop Pistachios: Begin by roughly chopping the salted pistachios and set them aside.
  • Prepare Pan: Line a 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Melt Ingredients: Set up a double boiler with a heatproof mixing bowl over simmering water. Add almond butter and dark chocolate chips to the bowl, gently melting them over low-medium heat while stirring occasionally.
  • Mix Well: Once the almond butter and chocolate have melted together, use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to mix well, ensuring the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Pour and Spread: Remove from heat and pour the mixture into the lined loaf pan, spreading it out evenly.
  • Add Pistachios: Sprinkle the chopped pistachios over the chocolate mixture.
  • Freeze to Set: Place the pan in the freezer for 2-3 hours or until the fudge is completely set.
  • Slice and Serve: Remove the fudge from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes to slightly soften. Slice into bars or squares and enjoy.


  • Store: Keep the fudge stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 week.

What’s the Difference Between Fudge and Chocolate Fudge?

Fudge is a creamy candy made from sugar, butter, and milk, which can be flavored with ingredients like vanilla or nuts. Chocolate fudge specifically includes chocolate or cocoa powder, giving it a rich chocolate flavor distinct from other types of fudge.

Can I Use a Different Type of Nut Butter?

Yes, you can substitute almond butter with other nut butters like peanut butter, cashew butter, or seed butters such as sunflower seed butter or tahini (sesame seed butter), depending on your preference.

Expert Tips

  • Quality Ingredients: Use high-quality semi-sweet/dark chocolate chips for the best flavor and texture in your fudge.
  • Consistent Heat: Keep the water simmering but not boiling to ensure the chocolate and almond butter melt smoothly without seizing.

Does pistachio go with chocolate?

Absolutely, pistachio goes wonderfully with chocolate. The rich, creamy flavor of chocolate complements the slightly sweet and nutty taste of pistachios.

This combination is popular in various desserts, including cakes, chocolates, and ice creams. Dark chocolate, in particular, pairs excellently with pistachios, offering a satisfying contrast of flavors.

How To Store Chocolate Fudge

    1. Hi Swati! You can use any other variety of nut butter or even seed butter. As long as it’s similar in texture to thick almond butter. Hope that helps! 🙂

    1. Hi Sarah! You can create a double boiler using a small pot, fill 1/4 of the way with water then place over a low/medium heat. Then place a heat proof bowl sitting on top of the pot (ensuring it doesn’t directly touch the water in the pot). Then melt the ingredients. Otherwise you can melt them together in the microwave in a heat proof bowl. Hope that helps! 🙂
