Bad storage will have a negative impact on the quality of your chocolates.

To prevent this from happening here are some useful tips.

How should I store my chocolate?

The optimum holding temperature of chocolate is between 15-20ºC with low humidity. To maintain the freshness of your chocolate, we recommend that you store your chocolates in a cool dry cupboard away from heat or light source and any perfumed items such as soaps etc. Never leave your chocolates in a parked car for any length of time.

As the cocoa butter in chocolate absorbs odours readily, be sure to store your chocolate away from such items as garlic and spices as these may also affect the chocolate's flavour.
