Storage notes: Cover pan tightly with foil and refrigerate once it cools. Or, after cutting into squares, transfer fudge to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. For tastiest results, bring fudge to room temperature before serving. Fudge that is kept cold may last up to two weeks. To freeze, wrap tightly or keep in an airtight container for up to four months without losing flavor. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and serve at room temperature.
