🍬 Storing And Freezing Steps
If you have fudge left and don’t eat it right away, I like to store the fudge in the refrigerator. You can store the fridge for 1-2 weeks in the fridge. You will find the Oreos in the fudge will soften a bit as it sits.
It is best to eat within the first 2-4 days. You can make this a day in advance for serving friends and family.
In terms of freezing, you can freeze this carrot fudge. Place in a freezer friendly container and freeze up for up to 3 months. You will find the Oreos soften a bit but it will still taste great.
Quick Tip – Make sure your fudge is in an airtight container and stored properly. Otherwise, the cold air can dry our your carrot cake fudge in the refrigerator or freezer.
📌 Expert Tips
- If you want a thicker fudge use an 8×8 pan. Or if you want a thinner fudge opt for a 9×9 pan.
- Make sure your chocolate is fully melted before you stir into the flour mixture.
- You can skip the Carrot Cake Oreos. If you do, mix 2 tablespoons carrot baby food, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in replace.
- Push the Oreos slightly into the fudge right after you pour, to help the Oreos stick on top of the white layer of fudge.
- You need to let your fudge fully set up, otherwise, it will not hold shape the way you want. Allow to set up on the counter or place in the fridge for setting up.
- Use a sharp knife for slicing into the fudge.
- You can melt chocolate chips on the stove if you want, just stir the chocolate constantly to prevent burning.
