How Long Does Fudge Last
Fudge lasts about two weeks on your counter. Keep it wrapped in plastic wrap or in an airtight container. If you want to extend the shelf life of your chocolate peanut butter fudge, placing it in the fridge should give you up to a month of deliciously rich fudge.
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!

Can this recipe be doubled easily? Also, so I’m clear the chocolate and milk can’t melted together then the peanut butter gets poured in and mixed. Then, it all gets poured into the pan.
Hi Nick, this recipe can be doubled easily. The sweetened condensed milk and chocolate are melted together in Step 2 and then the peanut butter is mixed in. Then we pour it into the pan and top it with our favorite toppings before letting it chill.
Made with unsweetened baker’s chocolate bars, natural peanut butter that I drained 1/2 the fat off and then blended. I added vanilla and chopped peanuts, and raisins. I think because I used unsweetened baking chocolate instead of sweetened chips, it helped it to set up fine, as there are no additives in the chocolate. I also don’t like my fudge so sweet. It was slightly softer than my regular chocolate fudge without peanut butter, but still firm enough to cut and eat. The reality is that I simply leave my fudge in the pan, and cut off bites as I want it…I will do this again. Thank you.
So happy you are enjoying this recipe!
MY FUDGE NEVER LASTS AS THE RECIPE SAYS THAT IT WILL.
