Storing Homemade Chocolate Covered Wafers

How do I store wafers dipped in chocolate as they get moist and are left with no more crunch. As it's rainy days where I stay. So, I can get rid of the moisture?

Second, when I make chocolates, they get water drops on them when taken out from fridge even for 1 minute or 2. It looks terrible. How I can remove it?

You should store these in an airtight container. You will need to use wax paper between the layers. This should help keep them nice and crunchie for you. It is best to not put these in the refrigerator to cool off. Let them sit on the counter until they are cool and then add them to your airtight container. Store the container away from the sunlight in a cool place in your kitchen.

I would store them with a paper towel to absorb the moisture

Boy are they pretty!! WOW!! You are very talented!

poehere and Judy both together are what I do...a layer of paper towel on the bottom, then wax paper, then chocolates, wax, choc, wax, choc and then paper towel on top of the last piece of waxpaper in a sealed container, in a cool dark part of the dinning room since my kitchen gets too much sun. It works!

Chocolate is the food of the gods and it is amazing...I am sure as you are quite familiar...it is also seriously temperamental...kinda like a 2 year old who got into a cappuccino...it is all over the place if you aren't careful!

This article talks about temperatures for maximum awesomeness ..20 C = 68 F.

No surprise if you know me, that chocolate does not last long around my house...so the storing part is mostly a moot point...the sweating thing is always a challenge, but this method works...and not using the fridge.

Happy chocolating!! Enjoy!!

Good suggestions already given.
I try to use a larger flat square Tupperware container to store chocolates in as you can separate them better and not need as many layers.

  • Just use the same method as described:
  • two paper towels in bottom and up the sides of container;
  • wax paper next (or foil if no wax paper available), chocolate next with wax paper making sure the pieces do not touch;
  • full layer of wax paper then chocolate and so on but do not skimp on the wax paper.
  • End with full layer of wax paper and paper towel on top (some people even add a slice of bread? to absorb the moisture) seal tight and place in a cool, dry (dark seems to help also?) place.
  • They also sell the smaller squares of foil (usually used to separate hamburgers) and these may work also.
  • If it is really hot in your house then even this may not work and I have known even wax paper to "stick" on chocolates if the heat and humidity is too much.
  • If you are doing this for a special event then you might try setting the container in front of a fan to keep it cool.

Not sure what you can do to keep wafers crispy in really hot humid weather but using the same method may help but not for a long period of time.

storing them in paper and airtight containers is good. But do you have to store them cool or can you leave them out? If in the fridge condensation will always be an issue.

I wonder if you could put a dessicant in the container with them, like the kind that come in purses or vitamin containers> (making sure to not touch the food of course)?

Best to store in a sealed airtight container. Place container in a cool, dry spot.
