Can You Freeze Fudge?

I want to know, can you freeze fudge?

I need to make candy and cookies for 58 nephews and nieces so I need an early start.


Yes, you can freeze fudge with success. I do it all the time.

You need to place the fudge in an airtight container to keep out moisture. I usually use Tupperware.

Between each layer of fudge place a layer of waxed paper (grease proof paper). This will keep the fudge from sticking together if you have already cut it into pieces.

If you want to leave the fudge whole, that's fine, too. Just wrap the container in a towel when you take it out of the freezer to defrost so that the fudge comes to room temperature a little more slowly.

Then you can cut the fudge up into the desired sized pieces when it has thawed.

That works pretty much the same way with freezing cookies. Just be sure they are well wrapped so they don't get freezer burn.

You are going to be a favorite with your nieces and nephews! :)

Have fun!

Freezing Fudge and Other Candy NEW

Hi Desiree,

Sounds like you are going to be busy making goodies. I just whipped up a batch of homemade peppermint patties yesterday. Mmmmm. I'll be sending the recipe and photos out in the next issue of Charmingly Chocolate newsletter this week.

It's my opinion that the rum balls and fudge can be frozen without too much worry.

Just be sure that you wrap it well before freezing them and then when you take them out to defrost them, allow the treats to come to room temperature before removing them from their packaging. This will help reduce the condensation on the fudge and rum balls.

As for the toffee, that's a bit trickier. I wouldn't be as comfortable freezing toffee because of the way it is made. I think the real problem would be stickiness. By that I mean that the toffee would probably become very sticky from the moisture of being in the freezer and the defrosting process.

Has anyone else frozen toffee with any degree of success? If so, please add your thoughts and experiences using the comment link below to help out Desiree.

Happy Holidays!

Can I freeze homemade toffee, rum balls and fudge?

I am planning on making all of the above and want to start now and plate/bag them closer to the holiday.

Can I freeze these items for 2 to 3 weeks?
Please advise.
