6 Weeks of Fudge Recipes - Week #6: Pistachio Fudge

December 16, 2013

Just a warning for you who are serious about your fudge - this is a quick & easy fudge recipe, not a "true" fudge recipe.  There are so many other things to worry about around the Holidays, my thought is, make the easy fudge!

I am a huge fan of pistachios and of fudge, so this is a great combo for me.  Once again, this can be put in the freezer so you can make it now, and store it for Christmas.

Pistachio Fudge

3/4 cups Evaporated Milk
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups marshmallow crème
8 ounces almond bark or vanilla-flavored candy coating
1/2 teaspoon pistachio extract OR 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 drops green food coloring, optional
1 cup chopped pistachios

Prepare a pan, either a 9 inch pan for thicker fudge, or a 13"x 9" pan for thinner fudge, by greasing it with butter.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the milk, sugar and butter to a boil, stirring frequently.  Boil for 4 minutes. 

Remove from heat and stir in the marshmallow crème and almond bark.  Stir until melted.  Add the extract, pinch of salt and food coloring.  Stir again until completely incorporated.  Stir in the pistachios.

Pour into the prepared pan.  Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until set.

Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or, for longer storage, in the freezer for up to 6 months in a freezer-safe container.

Real Food Meal Plan - Week of January 21, 2018

January 22, 2018

If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Foods lifestyle. I actually meal plan monthly but share it here weekly because it makes more sense to do so. Meal planning is my way of controlling the grocery budget (read as a LOT of dollars saved), ensuring there is no food waste for the week, as well as saving...

8 Steps To Creating Your Own Simple Homemade Life

January 18, 2018

Simple Living

As a follow-up to “What Is Simple Living”, these are steps (goals) that I’ve been using and will continue to use this year on my own path to a simple, homemade life.  I shared that I come from a family of collectors and that was my first challenge – purging the collections.  It was emotional and difficult at times but I can honestly tell you that I am thrilled that I did it.

So the collections are...

The BEST Deviled Eggs

January 17, 2018

When we first purchased chickens we hadn't thought through the fact that we were 2 people with a dozen laying hens. That meant 12 eggs about every 26 hours. We certainly had no trouble finding people we could gift our beautiful eggs to, but we also wanted to come up with delicious ways to use some of the excess ourselves. I've always loved deviled eggs but when I came across this recipe and...
