Removing Stuck Fudge

Hi All - I made Christmas fudge, didn't butter or line the glass dish & now I cannot get it out of the pan without destroying it physically. Hmmm, my first time - Any suggestions on how to remove the fudge without ruining it?

Do you have a second dish that you could prepare? Some of the fudges that I make, if put in the microwave, would soften. Could you try that, though don'tget it too hot, and remold in a new pan? What about scooping little spoonfuls out and making fudge balls, freezing them and once frozen, dip in melted chocolate for fudge balls? My girlfriend makes peanut butter balls this way. Good luck!

If you put it into the fridge, it should shrink a little and might even loosen a bit. You might need to sacrifice a little fudge from the edges and about an inch or so near one of the ends.... get a spatula/flipper underneath it and try to pry/lift it that way. It might even work to cut it in the pan and remove smaller pieces by getting under them.


In the future, using a liner would work best.

Good luck!

Not sure if this will work, but it might be worth a try: find a dish that's bigger than the dish you made the fudge in, lay the dish of fudge inside, and then pour hot water into the bigger dish. This should cause the edges of the fudge to melt a bit and you might be able to then turn the fudge dish over and get it to come out in one piece now that the edges aren't stuck. Good luck!

Prepare another dish with butter...Then microwave you fudge until it's liquid again and pour into newly prepared dish.
