How to package fudge for gifts?

I usually make plates of goodies for neighbors, friends, DH's coworkers, etc, but this year I just don't feel like making a bunch of stuff. Sooo I was thinking of doing just fudge for everyone, but I need some ideas on cute presentation. How should I package the fudge to make it look gift-like and cute? Should I cut it or should I leave it in a big brick? Any ideas? TIA.

I was going to say the same thing. Tin/box from the dollar store. I use wax paper on the bottom.

I just picked up a bunch of square tins from the dollar general. I'm going to make dividers to divide it into four sections and put in peanut butter fudge, chocolate fudge, peppermint bark, and sugar cookies :-). This is what I'm giving to family members for Christmas :-).

If you don't have any tins but have small boxes, you can put individual pieces in cupcake wrappers and then arrange them in a box that you line with foil. I think this looks pretty too, but it wouldn't store well, so it would have to be done right before gifting.

I usually cut it into a bar and wrap in waxxed paper. Then I get one of the celophane(sp) xmas bags and put it in there. They come with twist ties. You can get about 15 or 20 for only a few dollars.

Ooh, that does sound pretty. I was going to say a tin, but I vote for this!

Re: How to package fudge for gifts?

Thanks for the ideas! For those who use tins, do you pour it directly into the tin (over wax paper as someone suggested) and let it set right in the tin, or do you place it in the tin after it is firm?

I think I might try the cute Christmas celo. bags, that sounds simple and festive, and cheap (I have a lot of people do give to, and tins, even at only $1 apiece, can get pricey!).

Thanks, ladies, I knew I could count on you!!!
