How Long Does Fudge Stay Good For?

When making anything, the question of how long you can store it for often comes to mind. Unless you have some truly voracious eaters in your house, it's unlikely that you'll eat all 48 squares of this fudge in one go! Leftover fudge should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

Make sure you don't put the fudge in a Ziploc bag or similar; this isn't enough to keep it fresh. It has to be in a container that can seal to become airtight. A Rubbermaid container is a great example of an ideal way to store fudge.

You may be tempted to refrigerate your fudge, but we advise against this. Refrigerating fudge can cause it to quickly dry out and become crumbly. You can freeze fudge in an airtight container. Defrost by leaving it out overnight with the lid off. Make sure it is out of reach of any pets!

Fudge at room temperature will maintain optimal freshness for one month, but it can last for 6-8 weeks. Frozen fudge can last for up to three months. Before eating older fudge, check for an off or unpleasant smell or look. If the fudge tastes off, it has probably gone bad. Always trust your gut.
