Orange Pistachio Fudge


December is the time of year when our oranges are ripe. Like in years past, I’ve used our oranges to make something sweet for holiday gifts. This year, though, I made my umpteen batches of fudge while wearing a little 8 month old in a front carrier. Little fingers and wiggly legs are a distraction, yes, but they added extra sweetness to my Christmas gifts.


1 package (16oz) Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can evaporated milk
1 orange, zested
1/4 c pistachios, chopped
sea salt


First, line a pan with parchment paper. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Add the evaporated milk when the chocolate is fully melted. Stir in zested orange peel and chopped pistachios. (You can leave some for sprinkling on the top, or add more zest and pistachios to your liking.) Sprinkle with sea salt. Put in fridge for at least 6 hours to harden. Cut into small squares before serving.
