How long does it keep?

Once you have cut your fudge into pieces, store them in an airtight container with the layers separated with parchment. It will keep well for up to two weeks at room temperature. You can store it in the fridge for 3 to 4 weeks.

Can you freeze it?

You can freeze fudge, but you need to take care to wrap it very securely. There’s always a small risk that when it is thawed the texture can be slightly crumbly, though it will still taste good.

Freeze the fudge in blocks if you can and wrap tightly in plastic wrap and foil before placing in a freezer bag.

It will keep for up to 3 months and can be defrosted at room temperature.

Perfect for a food gift!

Tips!

  • Be sure to line your baking sheet with parchment. If you don’t, the fudge can get stuck to the tin. Let the parchment overlap the tin so that you can remove it easily.
  • Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave, stirring between intervals, so that it doesn’t burn. You can also melt it in a double boiler on the stovetop.
