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!
