Hi Baker,

If you have to store chocolate in the refrigerator, you should keep it well wrapped and away from any foods with a strong odor because chocolate will pick up the smell of other foods. Chocolate stored in the refrigerator is good for up to 1 year.

When chocolate is stored in a refrigerator, "blooming" may happen. This is when the cocoa butter crystals or sugar rises to the surface due to the humidity in a refrigerator. This causes a white or dull surface on the chocolate. Blooming does not change the taste of the chocolate and is not dangerous, it just makes the chocolate look strange.

Hope this information helps you out.

Sincerely, Diana
