Refrigerate



This Italian Amaretto Pistachio fudge is perfect for holiday gift giving as it stays fresh a good month so you can make this ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator.


The white chocolate Amaretto fudge looks beautiful against a Christmas colored paper. I like to place cupcake tin liners to stack the fudge into my container.


I also keep this in the refrigerator to stay firm and take pieces out when ready to serve.

  7. You will never guess what my latest food fetish is...pistachios. Sometimes I think the 2 of us are on the same page when it comes to cooking. Adding amaretto this this makes it even better.

  9. You mentioned pistachios and remembered I had some left over - now I'm snacking on them. This recipe sounds so good. I love all the ingredients. However it calls for chopped almonds but in the directions says finely ground. Which way do you like it best?

    I've never had white chocolate fudge but with these ingredients I look forward to trying it.

    Happy Holidays!

  11. It sounded like chopped almonds would be better. It seems like ground would be lost in all the chocolate. Thanks for the reply.
