Mint Tea & Pistachios Chocolate Fudge

Some of the food events are really challenging and they will pull you definitely to think beyond your limit, our this month's Kalyani's Magic Mingle was one among this, she gave us Tea and pistachios as this month"s secret ingredients. Initially i dunno know wat to cook or bake with this very different and challenging ingredients coz as per this challenge we have to combine these both ingredients in our dish. I love tea and pistachios separately but never had anything with them together.

After a long hestiation, i finally baked some muffins and everyone at home especially my lil loved this combo,so with full enthu i tried again this tea and pistachios combo in a fudge. As i told earlier, my kids are in vacation and obviously i have to prepare some bakes or snacks to them everyday,so i tried my hands in making a fudge with mint tea and pistachios,trust me this combination works out wonder in fudges and this dark chocolate fudge was a big hit among my kids and they just loved having them. I used the mint tea without making an infusion or grinding them as fine powder in this fudge,i just added some tablespoon of mint tea and sprinkled some on the top of the fudge.



1cup Sweetened condensed milk
1cup Dark chocolate pieces (chopped roughly)
2tbsp Mint tea leaves & few to sprinkle on the top
1/2cup Pistachio nuts
1tbsp Butter

In a heavy sauce pan, melt the dark chocolate pieces,butter,condensed milk,mint tea and stir continously.

Once this mixture gets thicken,remove the pan.

Add the pistachios nuts and spread the mixture over a baking sheet lined over a rectangular pan.

Sprinkle some tea leaves on the top of the fudge and keep aside until the mixture get cooled.

Arrange them in fridge for atleast 2 hours or until firm.

Cut into squares and enjoy it.
