I would make them a couple of days before. and I would store them in air tight container on the counter.

Thank you Luvlaugh. I'm hoping they won't melt in this heat. but I have 3 cakes that need to be done in a 2 day span so I'm hoping they will last. I though maybe put them in the fridge....

You don't want to store molded chocolates in the fridge. It will breakdown the chocolate. For an example, buy a hershey bar and put in fridge for a couple of weeks. You will see it will begin by turning white, then eventually will become crumbly.

If you are looking to make Halloween choc treats, I suggest no more than a couple of weeks stored air tight (double ziploc in tupperware, lol) in air conditioning, not fridge.
