  5. These look fabulous! How long will these stay fresh? Do you store in refrigerator? Can you freeze them or will chocolate on top change color? Thanks. Cant wait to make them!

    • Hi dee, you can store in the fridge, just use an airtight container. I left them at room temp (not a hot room) so they were ready to eat, if it's colder they're harder. You can freeze, we only had them in the freezer for a month, the chocolate color did not change but if it does they're still good. I've been to a chocolate factory and they explained to me when chocolate gets that dusty look on top doesn't mean it's gone bad just fyi 😉
