How to store chocolate

Got loads of chocolate? Simply wrap it air-tight and store in the pantry, at room temperature. Because of the cocoa butter content, chocolate will pick up off-flavors from the fridge or freezer.

Blooming (the discoloration of chocolate) may look frightening, but it doesn’t affect flavor or melting capability.

Contrary to legend, storing chocolate in the freezer does not extend it’s life. Room temperature is just fine.
