|Should I keep my chocolate in the 'fridge?||
Preferably not. Ideally a cool dry dark place is best. If the weather turns unseasonably hot then chocolate can be very well wrapped and put in the fridge. Not only does chocolate not like heat it also suffers from the damp conditions in a fridge so make sure it is sealed to keep out any condensation. The white bloom that appears occasionally can be caused by keeping chocolate in the fridge as the sugar crystals make their way to the surface of the chocolate. It may not look too good but can be eaten and may just taste a little grainy.
Keep chocolate away from strong smells too as it can absorb these.
Ideal conditions are a cool room temperature in a dark cupboard
