Irish Cream & Pistachio Fudge

I want to start making more candy. I look back here on the blog and it's like cookie and cupcake overload....I mean, if there is such a thing. ;)

So I made this Irish Cream & Pistachio Fudge. To be honest, I've been making it every Christmas for the past couple of years. People go crazy over it. It's kinda expensive to make, I mean pistachios and alcohol ain't the cheapest thing, ya get me? But it's so worth it, especially for special occasions. 

No cooking required for this fudge recipe. (Um, I don't count melting chocolate as cooking, okay?) So, I guess you can call this cheater fudge, but no one will complain about it, believe me. 

Irish Cream & Pistachio Fudge
Recipe from 

3 bags (36 oz total) white chocolate chips
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup Irish cream liquor
1/2 cup pistachios, chopped

Line an 8X8 square pan with foil, leaving a little hanging over the sides, and lightly grease. Set aside.

In a medium-sized sauce pan, combine all ingredients except pistachios and turn on low heat. Stir constantly until all the chocolate has melted.

Turn off the heat and continue to stir, making sure all the chocolate has completely melted. Then, add the pistachios and pour the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Let cool until completely set. 

Remove the fudge from the pan and peal off the foil. Cut fudge into small pieces and store in an airtight container. 


  1. This is my favorite kind of fudge, Shannon! Thanks for sharing the homemade version - it will be put to good use :)

  2. This sounds so good! I need to give it a try.

  3. Ooo, this is so pretty! I bet some cranberries in there would be stellar and all red/green for the holidays, too. And you know I love me a good cheater fudge recipe. Old-fashioned bs is for the birds. ;)

  4. Shannon, you are very creative... this fudge rocks! I totally know what you mean when you make certain things for special occasions. :)

  5. Helllloooo, St. Patrick's Day fudge! Though I have to say, I was all for it until "3 bags of white chocolate chips." Whoa. I mean, I know fudge isn't diet food, but dang. :)

  6. You had me at "sweetened condensed milk". Seriously, this looks absolutely delicious!!
