Ruby Chocolate Pistachio Fudge Recipe & Video Tutorial

By Lisa Maliga, copyright 2020

rubypistachiofudgeThis is the actual color of the fudge as it contains no added milk, cream, sugar, or butter. Some might call it ruby chocolate bark, except that it’s too thick for that. It turned out like this because I forgot to add the sweetened condensed milk. Roasted and salted pistachios provide a nice contrast to the sweetness of the chocolate.

Ruby Chocolate Pistachio Fudge Recipe

Equipment:

8 x 8-inch [20 x 20 cm] square pan
Parchment paper
Butter or virgin coconut oil and pastry brush
Large glass bowl for melting chocolate or double boiler
Teaspoons/tablespoons
Silicone or rubber spatulas
Potholders and trivet
Sharp knife
Airtight storage container

Ingredients:

14 ounces [400 grams] ruby chocolate
1/2 teaspoon citric acid
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
4 ounces [113 grams] chopped pistachios + 1 Tablespoon [15 grams] for topping

Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper. Brush butter or virgin coconut oil on the bottom and sides.

Fill the bottom of a pot with a small amount of water. Add ruby chocolate callets or chunks to a large glass bowl. Heat on a low setting. Temperature should not exceed 113 Fahrenheit [45 Celsius]. Add the citric acid and salt. When melted, remove from burner and place bowl on a trivet or potholder. Add vanilla and pistachios, mix well. Pour into a greased pan lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly with the spatula. Add the rest of the chopped pistachios. Place in refrigerator for 2-3 hours. When solid, remove the parchment paper. It’s best to have it return to room temperature before cutting into squares as it will be harder than fudge made with condensed milk.

Suggestion: This can be made as a bark by pouring it into a larger [9 x 13] pan or on a parchment-covered tray.

Ruby Chocolate: A Beginner’s Guide ~ Excerpt

By Lisa Maliga, copyright 2019

rubychocbarcalletsI became aware of ruby chocolate when I was watching The Great British Baking Show. A contestant was baking biscuits [cookies] using ruby chocolate. Paul Hollywood, one of the judges, proclaimed that the new chocolate “has a nice kick to it.”

Around this time, one of my baking buddies on Facebook posted a photo of her ruby chocolate truffles. Nancy Hoekman, the owner of Fancy Nancy Bites, is a talented baker and the photo she posted of her lovely pink truffles sparked my interest in trying the chocolate.

I could trawl the search engines for days upon days, or I could buy some and find out for myself how great it tasted and what I could concoct with it.

The best option was to buy it in bar form and order some wafers [callets] online. I called Trader Joe’s to find out if it was in stock and was informed that it had been discontinued, but I could buy it on Amazon.

Callebaut, the company that is in charge of distributing ruby chocolate had many lovely photos on their website and was proud to point out that: “More than 10 years ago, one of our cocoa experts discovered that components of certain cocoa beans could produce a cacao taste experience with an exceptional flavor and color. Since then, we’ve been unraveling the secret behind this, leading to the discovery of the ruby cocoa bean and creation of a totally new flavor experience. Like grapes for fine wines, cocoa beans are influenced by the terroir in which they grow. Ruby cocoa beans grow under unique climate conditions and can be found in Ecuador, Brazil or Ivory Coast. Ruby contains no added flavors or colors.”

What did I make with this big 5.5-pound bag of ruby red chocolate?  Scroll down and check out my book trailer!
