Storage:

Refrigerator

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Allow the fudge to come to room temperature before serving.

Freezer

You can also freeze fudge to extend its shelf life. Place inside a freezer container. Separate the layers with parchment paper to prevent them from sticking.

Freeze the fudge up to 2 months. This is helpful during the holidays when you need to prepare desserts in advance.

Tips to make Fudge in Crock Pot

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk. This is the ingredient that gives the fudge its sweetness and creaminess. It can’t be substituted for evaporated milk as it will not have the same creamy results.
  • Prepare the crock pot. Spray the crock pot or use crock pot liners. Either method is helpful to make clean up easier.
  • Stir frequently. As the mixture melts, it is important to stir every 15 minutes. This will prevent the ingredients from burning or sticking.
