Can you Freeze Fudge?

When we make a fudge recipe for the holiday it always makes a lot. Since fudge is a rich and sweet dessert we always seem to have a lot leftover. Storing leftovers to serve later we wanted to see what the correct way to freeze fudge so we don’t lose the creamy taste and texture.

Freezing fudge is simple to do. If you follow these steps, you will be able to enjoy throughout the year. Fudge is a perfect dessert when you have a sweet tooth. We usually only make it for the holidays, but now you can enjoy during the summer.

Following these steps will help keep the fudge rich taste, creamy texture and amazing flavor.

Can you Freeze Homemade Fudge?

Yes, you can freeze homemade fudge. When we prepare fudge and after it has cooled, we like to slice in individual servings. This allows for the fudge to properly be wrapped in saran wrap and then foil and placed in a freezer safe bag.

If the fudge is stored as individual slices, it is easy to pull just a small portion when you are ready to serve. If fudge is stored properly then it will last up to 3 months.

Fudge can also be stored at room temperature and it will last about 2 to 3 weeks.

What you Need?

  • Sharp Knife
  • Aluminum Foil, Plastic Wrap or wax paper
  • Freezer Bag or Freezer safe container
  • Label Stickers

How to Freeze Fudge:

  • Cut into individual slice – Our freezer is not big enough to hold a large tray of fudge. Cutting into individual slices allows it to defrost faster and to only thaw out a smaller portion.
  • Wrap Individual Slices – Place individual slice on a piece of plastic wrap and wrap. Then wrap again with aluminum foil. I like double wrapping to ensure no freezer burns and keeps the air out.
  • Freezer Bag – Place individual slices in a freezer bag or freezer air tight container. Make sure to squeeze out all air to keep the chocolate fudge sealed tightly.
  • Label – We like to label when we placed the fudge in the freezer. This makes sure that we eat it in a timely manner and we know exactly what is in the freezer bag.
  • Place in Freezer – We like to lay the freezer flat in the freezer. This keeps the fudge shape and safe from other freezer items.

How Long Does Fudge Last in the Freezer:

If stored properly fudge will last about 3 months in the freezer.

Why is my Fudge Dried Out?

How to Thaw Frozen Fudge:

Thawing frozen fudge the right way is just as important as making sure you freezing it properly.

  • Refrigerator Space – When you are ready to thaw your fudge, make sure you have place fudge in your fridge.
  • Thawing Fudge – To keep the consistency of the fudge, you want to make sure that you give time for the fudge to thaw. It will need about 2 hours of thawing time before you are ready to serve.
  • Ready to Serve – Once we are ready to serve, remove the freezer bag of fudge from the refrigerator. Remove the foil and plastic from the fudge and place on the a cookie tray. The fudge should taste and have the consistency as if you just made it.
