Freezing your homemade fudge can be very helpful, especially around the holidays when you are doing a lot of cooking in advance. This is a guide about freezing fudge.
Is it OK to put fudge in the freezer?
By Sheryl from Springville, UT
My son's girlfriend freezes hers all the time. It tastes and looks fine when thawed. She wraps it in cling wrap, then in foil, then in a freezer bag with all the air sucked out.
I've been freezing my fudge for years. I have so much to do at Christmas time, that I make my fudge and mince (sweet) pies in October and open freeze them on a tray till hard, then store securely in plastic bags or plastic containers which have tightly sealing lids, depending on what I have available. I've never ever had a problem, and they taste as if I have just made them.
How soon can I make fudge to freeze for Christmas?

I made mine last week and put it in Rubber Maid containers. I'll get a little out for Thanksgiving and the rest for Christmas. I do it this way every year. (11/21/2008)
My sister-in-law starts her Christmas fudge right after Thanksgiving. (11/23/2008)
