My Best Fudge Storing Tips (How to make ahead and keep fresh!)
- If making ahead of time, keep fudge in one large sheet in the freezer, in a tight bag with no air bubbles in the freezer, for up to 3 months. I actually like to keep it inside two bags – one that has all the extra air pushed out, and one over that bag to help prevent freezer burn.
- Do not slice fudge into squares until you’re going to give it away or eat it – this helps prevent it from drying out.
- Store uneaten fudge in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week; or 2 weeks refrigerated.
How to cut perfect fudge:
- Make sure your fudge is completely cooled before cutting (2 hours in fridge/1 hour in freezer)
- Use a knife with good balance (my favorite is a 5″ santoku knife, because it has a good thick blade and fits well in my hand)
- Press down hard, and break it apart!
