How to Store Chocolate & Keep it Fresh

Tips for Storing Your Chocolates

DON’T REFRIGERATE! Chocolate easily absorbs odors of whatever’s in the refrigerator (Roquefort cheese, lamb curry — you get the idea). Moisture in the fridge can also lead to “sugar bloom,” meaning the sugar rises to the surface and discolors the chocolate (which has no effect on flavor, but doesn’t look too appealing). So instead of the fridge:

Store it in a cool, dry place. When chocolate is kept at a consistent temperature below 70°F (ideally between 65 and 68°F), and at a humidity of less than 55%, the emulsion of cocoa solids and cocoa butter will stay stable for months.

But even in a cool, dry place: Remember that cocoa butter (the vegetable fat in chocolate) picks up the smell of whatever’s around it. So unless you want your bonbons and bars to taste like vanilla extract or garlic powder, follow the next rule:

Seal them in an air-tight container. Oxygen does just what you’d expect it to — it oxidizes chocolate, which causes less-than-ideal flavors to develop. And although chocolates are not known to be a favorite food of vampires…

Keep them away from the light! Not just sunlight (unless you want to make fondue), but also artificial light. They both cast the same kind of bad-flavor spell as oxygen does.A chocolate buffet for a wedding

Stored this way, chocolate will last a while: Solid milk chocolate keeps for over a year; solid dark keeps for nearly two years; and white for four months. Filled chocolates, such as truffles, keep for about three to four months (unless they’re full of preservatives).

Should You Put Chocolate in the Fridge?

Although we don’t usually complain about summer, it seems to be the No.1 enemy of chocolate, so should we store our chocolate in the fridge to protect it?

As the sun shines a little brighter and temperatures heat up, summertime seems to lift everyone’s spirits. However, for chocoholics, summer is the antagonist of their favourite treat; the hot conditions mean any chocolate bars are prone to melt, changing a snappable treat into a melted mess.

To avoid this problem, some may store their chocolate in the fridge so that they can enjoy both summer and chocolate at the same time. However, storing chocolate in the fridge can actually alter the chocolate bar as well; can chocolate-lovers ever win in the summer?

The taste of chocolate

Although you might think storing chocolate in the fridge only alters its texture, refrigerating chocolate can actually impact its taste as well. As cocoa butter absorbs flavours and odours, you could find yourself munching on a chocolate bar which tastes like last-night’s leftovers. Cold temperatures also prevent your chocolate bar from releasing more subtle flavours, meaning you don’t quite get all the nuanced notes of cocoa.

The chocolate texture

Another reason why chocolate shouldn’t normally be stored in the fridge is because it alters its texture: whilst, in the summer, chocolate can melt down to a sticky gloop, putting it in the fridge places it on the other end of the texture spectrum.
