I'd like to make some butterflies out of candy melts in advance for some baby shower cupcakes, but how long will they keep? I need them for Sunday and I'd like to make them tonight. Do I store them in the fridge or do I have to make them less far in advance? Thanks for any help!
I made seashells for a bridal expo and made a couple weeks in advance. I had them in containers and some were bagged weeks in before. IMO you could keep the things in a container for a while!
I agree, in a sealed container, they keep for a few weeks at least.
If you are just melting and molding the candy melts, they should last as long as the candy melts themselves would last. Just be careful of heat sources and be sure they are wrapped so they don't absorb odors.
My dad has a candy melt plaque I made for him 24 years ago. I'm always surprised when I run across it in his freezer! They've been through 3 refrigerators since then, yet the plaque remains!
They should be just fine but so keep them wrapped so they don't absorb odors.
or should we refrigerate?
I made some sea animals out of candy melts last week, put them in a ziploc bag and put them in the fridge, away from the food. They look fine. i think you can store them in a cool dry place for months.
