Holiday Candies Storage

As the yule season approaches, busy homemakers begin to make candy confections for entertaining and giving. These special confections, if properly stored, can be made weeks in advance making last-minute shopping and party preparation less hectic.

Keep creamy-type candy such as fudge or fondant fresh for several weeks by wrapping it in wax paper, plastic wrap or foil. Store in a tightly covered container in a cool, dry place for best results.

Chewy candies, like caramels, should be individually contained in plastic wrap to prevent them from becoming too sticky. These should also be stored in a tightly covered container in a cool, dry place.
