Can I freeze chocolate truffles?
Can I freeze chocolate truffles that I got for Christmas along with a lot more chocolate?
I was wondering if I can freeze chocolate candies?
As a general rule, you CAN freeze chocolate candy, including truffles. Some of the candy will 'keep' better than others.
The main problem you may face is discoloration of the chocolate candy when you remove it from the freezer. This is called "bloom." It doesn't change the taste of the chocolate, but it doesn't look as nice as it did originally.
There are some tips on storing candy
that will help you reduce the chances of fat or sugar bloom.
Regular or plain chocolate can be kept at room temperature for extremely long periods of time. Just keep it in an airtight container and away from extreme temperatures. There really is no need to freeze it.
Lucky you, to get lots of chocolate for Christmas! :-)
