Question Chocolate Fudge Question.

Hi all. Since Americans are famous for their home made chocolate fudge and stuff like that, I thought I would ask here.
Can chocolate fudge be frozen and if so how long will it keep in the freezer?
I want to make some now, for early November, but I don't have time to experiment to see how well the high sugar content will handle being frozen.

I believe that it can be frozen, but I don't remember how long. What recipe are you using? Every Christmas, there used to be a fudge-off between my sister and our Dad.

I tested a recipe today, actually I had my 13 year old make it. It was a quick and easy microwave recipe, although it would be just as easy to make on the stove. It's made with just chocolate, condensed milk and butter. They turned out pretty good.
It was so easy for her to make, I've decided to leave it and put it on the 'make in the last couple of days' list.

My wife makes it with marshmallows and semi-sweet chocolate. My sister makes it with condensed milk and more semi-sweet chocolate than milk chocolate. My dad made it with condensed milk and milk chocolate. All of them are yummy, though personally I prefer the semi-sweet or dark chocolate.

I used semi-sweet, with the condensed milk.

I thought about putting walnuts in. Since I'll be serving them, in little candy papers, to go with coffee at my sons wedding, I decided not to put nuts in, just to have some with a Macadamian nut on the top. Makes it very obvious for those with nut allergies.
They'll be one of a number of little treats, which is why I'm deciding what I can make now and keep and what needs to be done in the last couple of days.

Yep and home-made lemonade. I can remember my mother making both when I was really small, then for many years the only people I knew who ever made either were Americans living here. For some reason, probably laziness, it all went out of fashion here. It may well have in most of the the States too, for all I know LOL.

Yes, it can be frozen for several months.
The thing is that is doesn't have to be frozen.
You can just seal it in an airtight container.
The problem comes in keeping it away from people who will eat it.
Ever notice in the candy shops that it is NOT refrigerated?
It is just sitting on big old slabs in natural air.

We make it well in advance of the holidays so we will have enough when they finally get here and keep it in airtight metal tins lined with wax paper. We put wax paper between each layer and I put those little paper cups around each piece so they don't stick together. So far, we have not had any bad fudge. At least, no one has complained. We do chocolate and maple.

Another couple of things that used to be very American: root beer and peanut butter. Also tacos. You can get tacos now abroad but I haven't seen any root beer or peanut butter.
