Yield: 24-30 – 1” pieces

Decadent Pistachio Fudge with Espresso Balsamic


12 oz. 60% dark chocolate, chopped or 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 – 14 oz. can condensed milk
2-3 Tbsp. Olio Espresso Balsamic
1 tsp. Instant Espresso powder or ground coffee (optional)
Pinch Olio Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
1 c. shelled pistachios (or nut of choice)


  1.        Melt the chopped chocolate, condensed milk and Olio Himalayan Pink Sea Salt in a double boiler on low heat.
  1.        Put the nuts into a freezer bag and bash them with a rolling pin, until broken into both big and little pieces.
  1.        Add the nuts (if using) to the melted chocolate and condensed milk. Stir well.
  1.        Remove from heat, add the Olio Espresso Balsamic and instant espresso. Stir until combined.
  2.        Pour this mixture into a 9-inch square foil tray, or lined with foil, smoothing the top.
  1.        Let the fudge cool and then refrigerate until set. You can then cut into small pieces, as desired.
  1.        Once cut you can keep fudge pieces in the freezer. No need to thaw, just eat straight away.
