How long will chocolate lollipops stay fresh for?

I want to do chocolate lollipops for my baby shower at the end of April. If I start now, will they still be fresh?

Hi Veronica,

First of all, congratulations on your upcoming birth!! What a blessing!

Yes, you can make the chocolate molded lollipops now and they will still be fresh for your baby shower.

After you make them and wrap them in their little cellophane bags, place them all in an airtight container and store them in a fairly moderate temperature that isn't going to fluctuate much.

Even though you are in Florida, hopefully it won't be too hot before your shower so you shouldn't have to worry about the temperature.

I don't suggest that you refrigerate or freeze them because you may end up with discoloration on the chocolate lollipops from the moisture and condensation.

They'll keep fine at room temperature as long as it isn't extreme. Also, be sure to keep them away from strong smells - onions, scented candles, etc., because they will absorb the smell of what is around them.

So, how long will chocolate lollipops stay fresh? Really, the answer varies on environment, but usually several months at the least.

If you haven't purchased your supplies yet, you can find everything you need from the chocolate melts (even in colors for "painting" in the details), lollipop sticks, cellophane wrappers, to a nice selection of molds at Candyland Crafts.

I love their candy making supplies, and they are very inexpensive.

We'd love to see your finished molded lollipops when you get them made. Take a photo and show them off on our molded chocolates page.

Have fun, and blessings on your new little one.

Variety of Chocolate Molds
by: Angie

Hi Veronica,

No problem! I love the chocolate lollipops photo you added and can't wait to see more.

Yes, Candyland Crafts has a wide variety of molds (over 2000), so I'm sure you'll see some really cute options if you want to add to your theme.

Not only do they have a range of baby molds, but they also have "spring" type molds like flowers and things. It's such fun to browse through their online catalog. I admit I get sidetracked at times. :-)

Have fun!

Thank You Angie
by: Veronica

Thank you Angie for your kind words and your advice on the chocolates... I actually have made just 3 of them so far. I will definitely post pics of them, they came out better than I thought. I will definitely look into the website you suggested, I'm hoping they'll have different molds than the 2 that I already purchased.

Thanks again
