How to make peanut butter fudge

Tip: If you’d like to wrap in individual pieces, I like to cut it into rectangles, then wrap it in wax paper and twist the ends. Then you could place in a box or mason jar tied with ribbon. It makes for a darling gift!
How long will this peanut butter fudge last?
If stored in an airtight container this fudge should stay fresh on the counter for 5-7 days. This fudge will stay fresh 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator and 3+ months in the freezer.
Should you refrigerate fudge?
This peanut butter fudge certainly does not need to be refrigerated, but I like to refrigerate it to extend the shelf life. I also love to eat it cold. It is personal preference.
Can you freeze peanut butter fudge?
Yes you can definitely freeze this peanut butter fudge recipe. I like to wrap the fudge in foil and then place in an airtight container. It also will keep longer if you freeze within the first few days of making it. When you are ready to take the fudge out of the freezer, simply remove the amount of pieces desired and let thaw on the counter for 30-60 minutes.
