Can you freeze unmelted candy melts? If so, how do I store them in the freezer & how long will they last in there? Thank you :)
they are wilton
I've never frozen them for long periods. I just usually close the bag, throw it in a ziploc, and leave it in the cabinet.
I usually do that but i've been noticing that they are going bad fast & i try to buy the melts as late as possible for when i need them
going bad in what way — i’ve stored chocolate for months and as long as a year — no worries
smelled & tasted bad,had to throw it away
Really? I've never had candy melts smell bad - & I've kept them up to 6 months just in the cupboard. But I see no reason not to freeze them. They might stick together when removed but you are going to melt them anyway so who cares? :)
Yeah its been happening more & more often, so ive been opening the bags as soon as i buy them to see if they are bad so i can just return it while i'm still at the store.
the only thing about freezing them is it can create condensation when thawed so that's gonna cause problems when you melt them -- but I don't know what kind of candy melts you're getting but I've actually never heard of it going bad -- it can bloom and get dull looking -- it can lose flavor to some extent -- but I've never heard of it -- not that it can't happen I guess but idk I've stored it from thanksgiving to thanksgiving and then did dipped strawberries in back to back years -- no worries --
I dont know why some of the ones have gone bad :( but they smelled & tasted so bad, i melted them to make sure & tasted it & they were awful. i wonder if i should test it out & freeze some & then try melting them & see
That would be the only way that you're going to know if freezing them will change them. I think that I have some from like 2 years ago still in the cabinet lol but I've never had that problem. Sucks that it is happening!
Because I do a lot of sculpting with modeling chocolate, I buy Wilton Candy Melts like they are going out of style. I usually have at least a dozen bags on hand at any time and I've never notice any change in them what so ever. I just have them stored at room temp in their bags, or if the are opened, I seal the bags well and put a rubber band around them to hold them closed. I never had a problem with the opened ones either.
Like everyone else said never have had them go bad I’d take them back for a refund especially if it continues happening
I am completely mystified as to what is causing a bad smell and taste........unless for some reason, they are going rancid, like shortening left too long at warm temperatures....like a year.
no, don't freeze them
