Should I store my chocolates in the fridge in summer?

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Highland Chocolatier 48 Variety Final close up low res

Iain recommends storing all his chocolates air-tight in a fridge in the summer, thus keeping the textures and flavours in tip-top condition.

However, the closer to body temperature when eaten, the more the famous velvet texture and exquisite flavours will reach your palate.  So remember to take the box out a few hours before serving and resit opening it too soon to protect the precious contents from condensation.
