And the results were not typical of fudge either. (For me, there’s a certain amount of crunch and crumble in a square of standard fudge.)
These, though, while smooth, rich, creamy, and not too-sweet, have a softer texture that’s quite like, well … like eating squares of ganache.
Truffle-like, in other words. (No truffle-rolling, and chocolate-dipping required, though!)
So here we go…
Pistachio and Turkish Delight White Truffle-Fudge Squares.
Recipe adapted from Inspired by Michelle Cake Designs
Grease and line* a 20x20cm square baking pan.
*Make sure to use a sheet of baking paper that rises above the edge of the pan. This will make it easier to remove the “truffle-fudge” once it has set.
500g white chocolate
1 can condensed milk
30g butter, chopped into cubes
50g chopped pistachios
50g turkish delight, chopped into small pieces / mini cubes
Place the chocolate, condensed milk and butter in a microwave-proof bowl, and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir. Repeat until the chocolate has melted, and the mixture is smooth (don’t over-heat).
Stir in the pistachios and pieces of turkish delight.
Pour into the prepared square pan. Refrigerate for approx. 3 hours until set.
Remove from the pan and cut into small squares (dip the knife in boiling water to make cutting easier).
Pistachio and turkish delight is just one suggestion. Try other nuts, citrus zest, chocolate chips, etc for other flavour options.
