Hi, I am making candies from the candy melts that you add flavors to for my wedding favors. I have boxes to put them in and several molds to make them out of. I was wondering how far ahead of time these can be made. can they be kept in the freezer or do they need to stay at room temperature?
Cool room temperature, weeks to months should be okay.
Cool room temp and several months should be fine !
Just be careful what you store them next to. I made some candies once and stored them next to candles for a wedding. I didn't know they were scented until I tried one a week before the wedding and they tasted really funky. Luckily I had time to do them again, but I wasn't happy about it! Turnes out the candles were gardenia scented and sealed in plastic. I couldn't even smell them through the package but it doesn't take too much exposure to transfer some scents/flavors.
wedding is in may, is it too soon? I go back to school on the 12th of january and Im going to be really busy, was trying to go ahead and get some stuff done.
If your just doing melted choc and making shapes, with no added fancy design on them that might fade itself or fade onto a colored choc then yes you can make them now, keep them in a cool place out of the sun and away from other foods etc !
