Bailey’s double chocolate espresso fudge with pistachios

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Bailey’s Real Irish Cream, non-alcoholic
  • Instant coffee (1 tablespoon or more)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 11 ounce bag dark chocolate chips
  • 11 ounce bag white chocolate chips, good quality
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup pistachios, shelled

Directions:

Pour sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate into sauce pot and melt over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add one teaspoon vanilla and stir.

Add pistachios and instant coffee, then stir.

Line a baking pan with wax paper. *Neko’s tip: The smaller the pan, the thicker the fudge!

Pour the melted white chocolate mixture into the pan and refrigerate for a few minutes.

Pour heavy whipping cream and Bailey’s Real Irish Cream into a sauce pot. Heat over medium until warm, then add dark chocolate chips. Whisk until smooth, then pour the dark chocolate mixture over the cooled white chocolate mixture.

Let it cool again, cut into small squares and enjoy. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
