How long does it keep?
Once you have cut your fudge into pieces, store them in an airtight container with the layers separated with parchment.
It will keep well for up to two weeks at room temperature. You can store it in the fridge for 3 to 4 weeks.
Can you freeze it?
You can freeze fudge, but you need to take care to wrap it very securely. There’s always a small risk that when it is thawed the texture can be slightly crumbly, though it will still taste good.
Freeze the fudge in blocks if you can and wrap tightly in plastic wrap and foil before placing in a freezer bag.
It will keep for up to 3 months and can be defrosted at room temperature.
Perfect for a food gift!
If you are looking for Christmas gift ideas for friends and family, homemade salted caramel chocolate fudge is perfect!
Place the squares of fudge into cellophane bags, secure with ribbon and add a gift tag. Easy and everyone will love it!
- Be sure to line your baking sheet with parchment. If you don’t, the fudge can get stuck to the tin. Let the parchment overlap the tin so that you can remove it easily.
- Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave, stirring between intervals, so that it doesn’t burn. You can also melt it in a double boiler on the stovetop.

Made this fudge for a Christmas treat and honestly was not a fan of the cinnamon and nutmeg in the fudge. The caramel turned out to be a huge mess I refrigerated it over night and it was still super runny. Unfortunately I wouldn’t make this again.
I’m sorry this recipe didn’t work out for you, Pamela!
Is there a particular brand of Caramel topping you use for this recipe and would therefore recommend? And also a particular type of Caramel topping in that brand? Like, do you know the specific name of the one that you use? Is it one that’s meant to be an ice cream topping, or maybe a thicker kind that’s used for something like dipping apple slices into? Does it come in a Squeeze bottle, or maybe in a glass jar? It appears evident that getting the right brand, type, and thickness of Caramel topping seems to be a pretty important detail… Thank you!
Any kind in stock!
The caramel does not solidify, not even after a day in the fridge. It stays sticky and impossible to cut nicely. …
I am sorry this didn’t work out for you, Marta!
These are good in theory but…the caramel retains its out of the bottle consistency (fluid) so the top of the fudge never hardens. The result is a sticky—albeit tasty—mess. They look nothing like the picture.
I am sorry to hear it didn’t work out for you, Laurie.
How firm do these get exactly? They sound delicious but I want to stack them in a small tin and with the caramel topping I’m concerned they’ll stick together. Thanks.
I would place a piece of parchment paper between layers!
These look delicious and I want to try them, but dont have condensed milk. Can I substitute with something else like coconut milk? Or do I need condensed milk?
You will definitely need condensed milk as it is a completely different consistency and important to make delicious fudge! It’s worth a trip to the store :)
