How to Store Pumpkin Pie Fudge
When you make homemade fudge, you want to make sure it lasts. Actually, no matter where you get your fudge from, you want it to last. No one wants that rich and creamy decadent fudge to go bad. It is important when you are storing the fudge that it is in an airtight container. When it is not, it dries out and gets crumbly. When storing the fudge, it can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. You can store it in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.
Can you Freeze Fudge
When you have fudge that will not get eaten before it goes bad, you can freeze the fudge. Make sure that the fudge is wrapped well before freezing. I like to freeze the fudge so that I can take out individual pieces as I am ready for them so that there is no waste. I cut the fudge into pieces and them lay them together in an airtight container in a single layer. I add a layer of parchment or wax paper and then add the next layer. For added protection, you can wrap each piece of fudge in plastic. This will also work in a freezer bag. When you are ready for a piece of fudge, remove however much you want, and leave the rest in the freezer.
