So here's my question. I made a Fudge Filling and a Peanut Butter Filling..but the recipe made waaay more than I needed, even after i cut it in half. How can i store each of these fillings? Freezer? Fridge? How long do you think? Any input would be great, I'd hate to just throw away all this!
Here's whats inside the fillings incase you need to know:
PB: peanut butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, extract, buttercream.
Fudge: butter, powdered sugar, corn syrup, chocolate chips, buttercream.

Thanks!

Just guessing here: For storing in fridge, the PB filling has cream cheese so I'd use it within a couple of weeks. The chocolate filling can probably keep for a month. Both should be fine if frozen, up to six months.

Not sure how that one w/cr ch is going to defrost. I was goint to suggest you try fzing a tablespoon or two overnight then defrost and use to see how it turns out.

Cream cheese is fine in the freezer as an ingredient in a filling or frosting. No issues.

The only time freezing is an issue for cream cheese is by itself. Dairy often changes consistency as it thaws but it is still fine to eat. However, when it has been basically emulsified in a frosting - no problems.

So, if I am going to use a cream cheese / peanut butter frosting do you think it's ok to freeze?
