Storing Peanut Butter Buckeyes
Hi! I have a small business selling my buckeyes, and I'd like to expand by possibly selling them in a cake decorating/candy supply store I shop at.
The issue is, I always keep mine refrigerated, and to sell at the store they would not be. The ingredients are butter (melted), peanut butter, powdered sugar, and dipping chocolate.
Would these be okay in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of weeks, or should they really be refrigerated?
I would also wrap them in food grade cello wrap individually for sale, if that makes a difference. I'm so nervous about this... any help is appreciated! Thanks!
Congratulations on your expanding business!
Storing peanut butter buckeyes in an airtight container is a good idea, but I can't say if they would keep well for weeks.
Part of the answer would depend on the temperature inside the shop where you plan to sell them. If the temperature is too warm, the chocolate will melt onto the cellophane.
If the temperature is okay, you should at least be able to keep the chocolate covered peanut butter buckeyes for about at least a week. Hopefully, they'll sell so fast that you won't have to worry about a long shelf life. :)
