I have a client who wants to order some chocolate covered strawberries, she wants to pick them up and take them with her (about 2 hour drive) then keep them till the next evening.(will have accesss to refrigeration) Has anyone attempted keeping them this long, what about refrigeration? I am not optimistic about it, but I told her I would ask and see if anyone has had any experience with doing something like this....

I have done many. I have made them at night for a next day function. Do not put them in the frig. This will make them leak/seep/sweat. Put them in a cupcake liner and just put them in a covered box, if possible.

Make sure your strawberries will last. I got some this week. It was a buy-one-get-one-free deal. I only needed one pack. I left the other pack on the table of my very cool bakery. They started molding. One pack was obviously older than the other. Maybe you could get the store to get some from the back that would be the freshest... since they will need to stay perfect for awhile.
