How should I store my chocolates?
Our praline and ganache range is best consumed within 7 -10 days after purchase and our truffles approximately one week. The chocolates will remain fresh and best retain their delicate flavours and textures if they are kept in a dry atmosphere at a temperature range between 12 – 18 degrees. The chocolate should also be stored away from direct light.
Can I store chocolate in the refrigerator?
We do not recommend refrigerating your chocolates, however if you have no alternative, keep chocolates in their original packaging, place in an airtight container and wrap completely in plastic wrap before placing in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator at least two hours before eating, without removing the plastic film, to allow the chocolate to slowly reach room temperature.
Why has my chocolate turned white?
Chocolate turns white when the cocoa butter within the chocolate has separated toward the surface. It is often referred to as ‘chocolate bloom’. There are several causes, most often occurring as a result of warm storage conditions. Despite its appearance, chocolate that has “bloomed” is still safe to eat.
