Over the holidays a question came in through the website, “How do I store the Fat Ass Fudge I got for Christmas?” We love this question and were surprised to realize that we’ve never written about storing Chocology fudge.
Fat Ass Fudge is made with the highest quality, freshest ingredients available. Fresh goats milk and butter along with Belgian chocolate make up this tasty delight. It’s rich texture and taste lends itself to savoring this sweet treat and making it last. So storage is an extremely important issue if you desire to preserve the freshness of your fudge and enjoy it later.
Moisture and heat are never good for chocolate. So keeping your fudge dry and cool when storing is of utmost importance. The best way to store your fudge is to first package it securely. You can do this by wrapping it in wax paper. To add an extra level of security, wrap foil around the wax paper. Then, place the bundle in a Ziplock bag being careful to push as much air out of the bag as possible and zip up.
Next, how long would you like to store your fudge? Fudge can be stored on the counter at room temperature for several weeks if wrapped properly. Placing it in the freezer will preserve it for several months. Both of these storage techniques will provide tasty fresh- made fudge whenever you are ready to enjoy it again.
Lastly, when storing in the refrigerator or freezer, be sure to set it on the counter and let come to room temperature before eating. Cold chocolate doesn’t melt in your mouth like room temperature chocolate does. And remember to practice the Art of Tasting Fudge when enjoying this confection. Who knows, you might have leftovers to preserve again!
