Can You Freeze Fudge

You bet! All fudge freezes extremely well. If you’re freezing it, just wrap it tightly and place it in the freezer.

Fudge lasts about 3 months in the freezer, so remember to date the package when you put it in. When you’re ready to enjoy it again, you can take the fudge out and place it on the counter to defrost. Voila! Chocolate peanut buttery goodness once again!

  1. I use Reese’s peanut butter chips instead of peanut butter. A neater, cleaner way to make this fudge and it sets up much quicker.5 stars

  2. Love this fudge quick easy and delicious. I did however add chopped walnuts. This will be my go to peanut butter and chocolate fudge recipe.5 stars

    1. It should set within about an hour. I haven’t had it not set. Did you use sweetened condensed milk (and not evaporated milk)? What type of chocolate and peanut butter did you use?

  3. Thank u for this recipe. I made it and it turned out great. The only thing different I did, was added vanilla extract to the melted chocolate and condensed milk.

  4. QUESTIOON –i WANT TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE BUT i waNT TO USE PEnut butter morsels and SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK. WHAT ELSE SHOULD I USE TO Make the peanut butter fudge? Please let me know..THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.

    1. I make it with 2 cups of Reeses peanut butter morsels 1/2 cup of crunchy peanut butter and a can of sweetened condensed milk I melt it in one minute intravals and stir until smooth and poor in a 9X9 inch pan lined in foil and refrigerate until set. It is awesome and I always have to hide some for myself. Good luck

  5. This was great. The only change I made was using Bakers UNSWEETENED baking chocolate. I don’t like my fudge so sweet. Loved the peanut better. I also sprinkled the top with some kosher salt after putting in the pan. I have recently not been able to eat baked goods. So I am looking for other ways to feed my sweet tooth. This was great. I can see a number of variations: chopped peanuts, broken toffee, marshmallows, raisins, just about anything but grape jelly that goes with peanut butter. Looking forward to finding other no flour and no gluten free flour products. Thanks5 stars

    1. Hi Hollie, you can scroll to the bottom of the post or select the Jump to Recipe button at the top for the full recipe with measurements.

    2. Wellll, That measurement would be, what ever size piece you can fit in your mouth. Be Irish and having a big mouth I find I can handle, well, you get the point….

  6. I made this on 26 Jan for the family, easy and absolutely delicious! This was well received by the family. For a topping I used peanut butter MM candies, perfect. Thanks, Holly, for a great recipe.5 stars

    1. I can’t say for sure as I haven’t had the same issue. Did you use sweetened condensed milk (and not evaporated milk)? What type of chocolate and peanut butter did you use?

  7. I’m excited to try it, but I’m going to try less peanut butter as I’m going to lace it with Reece’s bits and Reece’s cups

  8. I have tried many times to find out the ingredients for this recipe. I went to the recipe like you told another person, and I still can’t find it. Most other recipes have a “jump to recipe” icon at the top of the page. Please tell me how to find out the ingredients. Thank you!

    1. Hi Vayle, if you scroll down to the recipe section it lists the ingredients and amounts to use! For the optional toppings, add as much or as little as you’d like! Hope that helps!

    1. While I have only made this recipe as written I think that sounds like a delicious variation Pat!
