If you want to freeze your Hot Pockets, make sure they are completely cool before wrapping them in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil. The plastic wrap should go directly against the cheese and meat filling on each side of the pocket, while the aluminum foil should cover both sides. Put them in a freezer bag with as much air squeezed out as possible.
In order to thaw Hot Pockets, let them sit out at room temperature until they’re fully defrosted. You can also use the microwave if you want them ready more quickly; just make sure to check their temperature before eating them!
If you’re wondering how long do hot pockets last, it depends on how long after being opened you keep them refrigerated (or frozen). Once opened, store any unused portions of Hot Pockets in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag in your refrigerator for up to 2 days (3 days when using a microwave).
