Chocolate: Main Image


Wrapped tightly and protected from humidity and temperature variations, chocolate will keep for several months. It is best stored at room temperature (approximately 65°F, or 18°C). It can also be stored in the refrigerator or the freezer, but doing so may cause a whitish film to appear on the chocolate’s surface, due to the resurfacing of cocoa butter. Although this does not alter the flavor of the chocolate, it adversely affects its appearance.
