4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge - Tastes like Italy - Green for Saint Patrick's Day!

The other day I was thinking, it doesn’t seem fair that Christmas is the only holiday we celebrate with fudge. Independence Day doesn’t get fudge. Easter…… no fudge.

Heck, not even Thanksgiving gets its own fudge. Yet at Christmas we make pounds of it in all different varieties.

I don’t know about you, but if I were a holiday I would revolt.

Simple and Silky 4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge

Saint Patrick’s Day deserves fudge, guys. Green Fudge.

Made out of one of the best green foods around… Pistachios!

Making 4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge - Tastes like Italy - Green for Saint Patrick's Day!

So today I’m serving up smooth creamy 4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge for St. Paddy’s Day.

I do apologize if this recipe concept is a little confusing. It’s green for St. Paddy’s day, yet tastes like Italy. However, if I had used a traditional green Irish ingredient we would have ended up with cabbage flavored fudge. I figured you would forgive me on the less than authentic recipe.

Although it isn’t Irish, this 4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge is authentically divine.

Love this 4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge - Tastes like Italy - Green for Saint Patrick's Day!

Our 4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge is ultra soft and silky, with the mellow nutty note of pure pistachio, and bits of crunchy green pistachio pieces speckled throughout.

This easy microwave fudge recipe takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and includes only 4 ingredients: Sweetened Condensed Milk, Almond Bark, Pistachio Extract, and Chopped Pistachios. (You can add green food coloring if you like.)

You simply melt, stir, and pour it into a baking dish to cool. After the fudge hardens, cut it into squares and prepare to melt with delight as it melts in your mouth.

We even keep our Pistachio Gelato Fudge in the freezer so you truly get the frozen gelato essence!

Simple and silky 4-Ingredient Pistachio Gelato Fudge, makes you feel like you’re sitting in a piazza in Italy!



  1. Pour the sweetened condensed milk in a large microwave-safe bowl. Roughly chop the almond bark and place it in the bowl. Microwave in 1 minute increments, stirring in between, until the mixture is totally smooth.
  2. Meanwhile line an 8 X 8 inch baking dish with foil. Once the fudge mixture is smooth, stir in the pistachio extract and chopped pistachios. Add green food coloring if desired.
  3. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Then flip the hardened fudge out onto a cutting board and peel off the foil. Trim the edges and cut into 49 squares. Keep in an airtight container at room temperature, or in the freezer!

NOTE: Almond extract has a similar flavor and can be substituted, but the pistachio extract is wonderful!

    I wish I could reach into my monitor and EAT THE WHOLE PLATE!

    Im from Australia and would love to make this recipe. Whats a substitute for the almond bark? Is almond bark just white chocolate with almonds in it? Can I just use white chocolate?

      Hi Heyam! Yes, I would just sub white chocolate. :)

    I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest & just KNEW I had to make it for my mother who is a pistachio fanatic! She LOVES the Talenti brand Sicilian Pistachio Gelato & eats it by the pint so I knew this would be right up her ally. I’ve recently gotten her hooked on Blue Bell’s Pistachio Almond ice cream flavor, so when I couldn’t find pistachio extract I stuck w/ pure almond extract, knowing that she would appreciate the flavor. This fudge is UH.MAY.ZING!!! I loved it & I’m not usually big into sweets of any kind… It was creamy & nutty & delicious, & with the 2 drops of green food coloring I added it was a beautiful light green. It’s in a St. Patrick’s Day care package on it’s way to Savannah right now! Thanks! :)

    Christmas is when I think of fudge too but Easter is all about the chocolate! This is pretty and festive way to get your “chocolate” fudge fix in! Plus it’s healthy with the pistachios right? Great recipe! Saving for my Easter treats this year!

    What a fun way to change up fudge for St. Patrick’s Day.

    My family gets a fudge lamb at Easter :) I made it once and there would be a revolt if I didn’t break out the mold every spring. But I think I could work in some St. Patrick’s Day fudge, too! Love the addition of pistachios!

    Looks wonderful, and pistachio gelato was my favorite thing in Italy. I had it every day! Where do you get pistachio flavoring, though???

  9. Gabyposted March 5, 2015 at 12:17 pm Reply

    Mmmmm, fudge! This looks delicious and it’s so pretty!

  10. Megan {Country Cleaver}posted March 4, 2015 at 11:13 pm Reply

    Yup – craving these! Pistachio is one of my favorite flavors and clearly not enough things come in pistachio flavor. Thank you for breaking it out of its shell! HAAA!

    Ooooh my goodness!! That fudge looks divine :)

    You’re right cabbage flavored fudge would not be good, I much prefer an Italian version!

  13. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addictionposted March 4, 2015 at 12:28 pm Reply

    Fudge definitely needs more attention throughout the year! This sounds incredible!

    this is SO pretty Sommer! (and really easy!)

    I am all over this! Love me some fudge, especially when pistachio is involved!

    4 ingredients in a microwave? You make my heart flutter Sommer! What a great little recipe!

    I 140% agree with you. Christmas should not be the only special holiday reserved for fudge making! I have actually never made my own, but anything with pistachio and gelato in the title, WITH fudge? It’s going to be AH-MAY-ZING. Pinned!

    I’m all about food that takes you to Italy, or wherever on vacation but you don’t actually have to get on a plane or drive anywhere. And as far as I can tell, every man is obsessed with pistachio’s. I need to make this for my father-in-law, the ultimate pistachio man!!
