The only decision to make when freezing fudge is to freeze individual servings or as a block of fudge. I actually freeze a batch of fudge both ways.

Why I Triple Wrap Fudge?

Triple wrapping the fudge is personal preference. I like to ensure the fudge is totally protected from freezer burn. 

Should I cut the fudge into individual squares or freeze as a block?

This is personal preference too! I actually wrap my Fantasy Fudge recipe into individual squares and in a block. For ease of serving after defrosting I cut the fudge into a block about 4″ by 4″ and then cut the fudge block into individual pieces BUT I freeze the block as is and do not separate the individual pieces.

This makes serving the fudge much easier when defrosted.

Simply defrost the fudge block in the refrigerator or counter if in a hurry and after defrosting separate the squares from the fudge block.
