Most people don’t realize that although fudge is delicious freshly made, it can be frozen for up to a year without losing any of its flavor!
To properly freeze cut into pieces, then wrap each piece with an airtight wrapping material, such as aluminum foil or Saran® brand wrap. Pro Chocolatier tip... most plastic wraps other than Saran® are actually not airtight, and won’t protect your fudge against moisture or water vapor.
Once wrapped, place the pieces of fudge into a plastic freezer bag. Remove as much of the air as possible before you seal the bag. Store it in the freezer until you are ready for a treat. Only put as much fudge as you will want to defrost at any one time into each plastic freezer bag.
This next part is crucial! Properly thawing out your frozen fudge is vital to its flavor and consistency. When you are ready to treat yourself, 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. Be patient, this can take as long as 24 hours.
After the fudge is completely thawed, remove its wrapping and indulge!
