Freezing Almond Bark

What's the rule on freezing almond bark?


Hi,

I'm making almond bark with dried cranberries in it for wedding favours at a December wedding. I was wondering if, firstly I could freeze it, and secondly, for how long?

How soon can I start making the bark before the December wedding?






Hi Penny,

First let me say a big Congratulations on the upcoming wedding if it's yours! :) If not, best wishes to the bride to be, instead.


Almond bark with dried cranberries sounds like a perfect wedding favor idea. I assume you are going to use the white almond bark for the glorious color you'll get in the combo.


Yes, freezing almond bark is do-able. You just need to be sure that you really wrap it well so that moisture can't get in. I'd wrap it well AND place it in an airtight container to be on the safe side.


When it's time to thaw the Almond Bark, keep it all wrapped up and let it defrost gradually so that it returns to room temperature without condensation building up on the inside, discoloring the chocolate.


I probably wouldn't want to freeze it longer than 3 months myself. In fact, I'd be inclined not to freeze it at all. Almond Bark with cranberries should keep well at room temperature for several weeks.


You just need to store it in an airtight container away from strong smells and fluctuating temperatures. You could probably safely make it in October or November and avoid freezing almond bark altogether.


Does anyone else have any further tips to add for Penny regarding making, storing, or freezing almond bark with cranberries?

Hi Thelma,

Yes, you can refreeze your leftover almond bark or chocolate to use again later. ;)

Your almond bark sounds delicious. I was looking all over GatheringGuide.com for some as a part of my wedding centerpieces, but you make doing it myself sound easy! Thanks. I'll try it ahead of time just to make sure, though, because I'm not professional :)
