Easy Cherry Pudding Fudge Squares
- 1 Box [3.9 ounce] of cherry flavored pudding

- Next, add in the dry pudding mix and stir to dissolve. Mix in any food coloring at this time, stir to combine.
- Now, pour in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, stirring until mixture is smooth.
- Proceed to pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Then, add the sprinkles on top of the fudge, pressing down gently with the bottom of a spatula.
- Let cool completely before cutting into small squares. Serve and enjoy!
Can you freeze fudge squares?
Yes, fudge can freeze and will do very well if stored in an airtight container. I recommend keeping this fudge already cut into serving-sized squares before freezing because it makes serving much easier. As the chocolate ages in the freezer, you may notice a white separation, this is normal and harmless.
How long are fudge squares good for?
This fudge should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature and will be good for up to 2 weeks. The fudge will last much longer in the fridge but can be stored there if desired. Some folks prefer fudge cold, especially on a hotter day. Your choice, either way it will taste amazing.
