Creamy on the inside and salty on top.  This Pistachio Fudge has two of my favorite flavor combos.

Pistachio Salad was ALWAYS on our holiday table.  So as you might guess I love pistachio desserts.  Like my Pistachio Salad Mousse Pie or my Pistachio Pudding Ice Cream.

The easiest way to get the perfect pistachio flavor every time is by using pistachio pudding mix and that’s exactly what I did to create this delicious sweet and salty fudge.

  1. Hello — How do you cut 42 pieces of fudge from an 8×8 pan? Is that correct? That’s 21 cuts in each direction, right? That would make pieces of fudge that are approximately 1/3 inch square… The photo looks like the pieces are maybe an inch square, which means you’d get 16 from that pan.

    • Hi Sue, Yes you can stir the nuts into the fudge. You can also add it to your cookie tray. It will dry out if left outside of a sealed container for sometime.

    • Hi Diane, I know that can be kind of confusing. Here’s a rule I go by when writing my recipes. If it says tablespoon then you can assume that it is a singular amount (1/2 or 1). If it says tablespoons then you can assume it is multiple amounts as in this case of 1 1/2 tablespoons. I hope this helps with this recipe and future ones too! Have a great week!
