no problem Leona!!! Welcome to the team!!
like i said the bloom doesnt effect taste or quality. its NOT freezer burned or moldy. just a reaction to the cold.

please note on anything coated in chocolate, that the cold may cause a "bloom" where the chocolate gets a whitish cloudy appearence. this does NOT reflect on taste, or mean its bad, its just a reaction to the cold and not as pretty.
as for fudge..i make both, but find my customers prefer what you call cheater fudge...its smoother and more velvety. I've taught candy making classes and always do both and most prefer the ease and texture of the marshmallow fluff fudge.
I have also found that making peanut brittle in the microwave takes about 10 minutes. uses the same exact ingredients, tastes exactly the same, same high quality, and no mess, no fuss, my bakery is so busy i'm all for anything that gives great quality in less time!! I dont cut corners on ingredients or prep...but if it is exactly the same or better you bet i use it!!

OK... Yes... the marshmallow ones can be cut at a later time... thank goodness that is what you made... I have always made the old style fudge... It is what we are used to.

I did use one of the cheater recipes with marshmallows. Didn't have a problem cutting it. I'm not brave enough to try a real fudge recipe yet. Going to work my way up to it.

You let your fudge set overnight? I hope you have no trouble cutting it... I usually score my fudge when it is only half set, then I cut it as soon as it is just barely solid... Otherwise I find it cracks... What type of recipe did you use? is it one of the cheater ones that uses marshmallows? Mine is the old fashioned type that gets boiled to the soft ball stage, with just sugar, cocoa powder, milk, syrup, vanilla, salt, and butter...

Thank you for taking the time to respond! The peanut butter balls do not have eggs in it, but they will be covered in chocolate. The fudge is boiled. I let it sit overnight in the fridge to set, so I'll take it out and let it get to room temp. and put it in a container.

It depends how the peanut-butter balls are made. Are they using eggs? If the ingredients can be stored outside the fridge, then it should be OK outside the fridge. Is the fudge a boiled fudge? If it is, then it should be OK stored in a container at room temp. I make boiled fudge all the time, and I keep it in a container at room temperature.

I'm new to this team, as I am trying to learn how to bake and cook more at home. Tonight, I started baking the goods for christmas. I've already made the pies and put them in the fridge. I'm also making peanut butter balls and fudge.

Does anyone know if I should put the peanut butter balls and the fudge in the fridge or will they be ok in air tight container until christmas?

Thank you in advance and happy baking!
