Most people don’t realize that although fudge is delicious when freshly made, it can actually be frozen for up to a year without losing any of its flavor!
To properly freeze fresh fudge, cut it into whatever size pieces you want to freeze, and then wrap each piece with an airtight wrapping material, such as aluminum foil or Saran® brand wrap. Most plastic wraps other than Saran® are actually not airtight, and won’t protect your fudge against moisture or water vapor.
After they are wrapped up, place the pieces of fudge into a plastic freezer bag. Remove as much of the air as possible before you seal the bag, and then store it in the freezer until it’s needed. Only put as much fudge as you will want to defrost at any one time into each plastic freezer bag.
The most important part of freezing is actually in the thawing. That’s right, properly thawing out your frozen fudge is crucial to its flavor and consistency.
When you are ready eat fudge, remove it from the freezer, keeping it in the plastic bag. If the fudge is removed from the plastic bag before it reaches room temperature, moisture in the air will condense on the cold fudge, making the top sticky and soft.
Let the fudge sit in its wrapping and plastic bag at room temperature until it has completely thawed.
After the fudge is completely thawed remove it’s wrapping and enjoy!
