HOW TO STORE FUDGE
How should Fudge be stored?
Fudge is best stored at ROOM TEMPERATURE in an airtight container (any food storage container - with a good lid! - will do). We strongly suggest immediately upon receiving your treats, transfer to an airtight container. This will preserve freshness the longest, as it will prevent it from drying out.
What type of container is best?
Any kitchen / food-storage type container as long as it has a tight lid! Think Rubbermaid-type options, glass with silicone lined lids, plastic with good snap on lids, etc. Ziploc style baggies will NOT keep the Fudge fresh, however, good quality reusable silicone bags work well.
*Baker’s Tip* Line the bottom of your container with wax or parchment paper to cut down on any mess.
Can Fudge be refrigerated?
DO NOT REFRIGERATE YOUR FUDGE! This will dry it out quicker and possibly cause it to pick up other scents from inside the fridge (and no one wants to eat chocolate-raspberry-zucchini-casserole fudge!)
Can Fudge be frozen?
Freezing fudge is a great option as it thaws very nicely, and extends the life of your Fudge significantly.
What is the shelf life of Fudge?
At room temperature fudge will remain freshest the first 4 weeks, but can last 6-8! It can be frozen for up to 3 months.
What is the best way to defrost Fudge?
Fudge will defrost completely in just a few hours. It can be left out on a plate or in an uncovered container, or even with the cover on. The longer it is left to defrost, the less "tacky" the outer surface will be. Remember, Fudge can be eaten straight out of the freezer as well! So how much it defrosts is really personal preference.
*Baker's Tip* Some flavors, like our Mint Chocolate Chip, Orange Creamsicle, and Chocolate Cherry, taste incredible straight out of the freezer!
