Make my fudge last longer

Okay, I did a search, but, it came up with 1001 threads and my brain just can't cypher through it all. How can I make my fudge last longer? I making one, regular cooked to 238 degrees today and I want it to last until next Sunday. Also, I will be making a couple other ones tomorrow and want the same length for lasting. They are about the same, one has eggnog and one with cherry's, but, made the same with way with white chocolate chips.
Can I store it a certain way or what?

I'm LMAO...make fudge LAST???? You have got to be kidding. That is a question that has never been asked because it all gets eaten so quick.

OK, seriously though. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then in foil and you can either refrigerate or freeze it that way.

I thought I'd ask here since it is a similar question.....can you just ship fudge? or does it need dry ice ect.

Recipe I have seen says store the fudge in the refridgerator until an hour or so before serving...so does that meant I shouldnt ship it??

I shipped mine before, but, it was one that didn't need refrigeration.

I have insulated boxes that I bought at a hardware store. Wrap the fudge in saran, and tin foil and then, place in a zip lock bag. Put in insulated box with a "Freeze Block" in it. Make sure the package doesn't rattle--fill with popped corn or styrofoam peanuts and mail priority or overnight depending upon the location.

I was thinking along the same lines. The best way to make fudge last is to NOT EAT IT! Hide it somewhere in the house.

I've tried putting the fudge in the freezer out in the garage to make it last longer...it doesn't. I just get out of my chair and go after it.

Yes, Katie, it is! I think since TG has brought up the subject of fudge and tantalized us with it she should share...Then we can decide if it is worth saving!!
