Freezing Russian Fudge

I am making the equivalent of 4 batches of fudge for a 21st. We will be away until a few days before the "do" and I wanted to freeze some. I have made one double batch and cut it up. I want to know if it is OK to freeze in pieces in a tin. Any suggestion or hints will be welcome.

But it will keep well in a tin stored cool and dry

With freezing you will risk ice particles on the fudge that will melt into the product and make it sticky. I would not freeze it.

As above.

But why not store it in the fridge. And then perhaps just freeze a couple of pieces, and re thaw and see how it goes. Then you will have your answer without wasting it all.

The 21st is on Feb 15th and we get back on the 9th. I could re do it if it doesn't turn out OK. I have some smaller pieces so may be I'll freeze them then thaw and see how it goes. Thanks for the input, tho' the more the merrier.

It would keep just fine in the fridge for that long I'm sure. As long as you can resist it!

russian fudge is actually better if it sits for a while.
Doesn't need to be frozen.

I make Russian fudge for your school fair (78 batches one year was my record). I don't make double batches, but what I do do, is put a pair of saucepans on the stove.

A pair of batches takes me 45 minutes .

Well thanks for the input. I froze a few pieces and they came out fine after thawing. I cut the pieces up (before freezing) and let them dry. I made a double batch again yesterday and let it sit overnight. It is going into the freezer shortly. If things don't pan out I'm going to be busy when I get back!

It keeps well in an airtight tin or jar, no need to freeze

I have some in the frig from Christmas but it was not always in the frig so was a bit iffy about the butter with that lot. I must try some and see if it is OK. Actually the double batches have come out fine only the pan is a bit heavy when pouring and getting it out in a hurry as I always seem to.
