People have been combining nuts and chocolate for ages now -- with chocolate and peanuts or almonds being a very popular mix -- but this takes on a new form in chocolate pistachio donuts. Created by food blogger Jess of How Sweet it Is, the recipe for chocolate fudge pistachio cake donuts is a great way to celebrate National Fudge Day, especially if you still aren't over National Donut Day recently.

If you want to make your own version of these baked donuts at home, you will need roasted, shelled pistachios plus high quality chopped dark chocolate for the chocolate ganache. They are also healthier than your average deep fried donuts too.

The chocolate pistachio donuts make a delicious dessert any time of the year.
