    Default The best way to store white chocolate?

    I received a 55lb box of Bernard Callebaut white chocolate today from DH as an anniversary gift. It was given to him by his boss because it was part of a damaged skid that came off the truck at his warehouse, and he gave it to me because he knows how much I love white chocolate! Anyways, besides white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, I was looking for a website with lots of really good (and tried out) recipes with white chocolate.

    I'm also looking for a way to store this chocolate so that it'll stay good. I know you can melt it down later if it gets a layer of wax over it, but is there a way to prevent that? Does it freeze well at all?

    Happy Anniversary. The chocolate gift sounds so cool. I love chocolate. I freeze all my chocolate and chocolate chips and they have stayed fresh , but not sure what to tell you . I would probably bake cookies till my heart was content...lol and then freeze.

    Aren't you the lucky one!
    I would break it down into small sizes and freeze it. I've frozen all kinds of choclate for years and never had a problem with it except when I freeze too big a chucnks together. Then I have to use my rolling pin to seperate them.
    Now your all set to start your holiday baking. lol Remember its more blessed to give than recieve! My address is.....

    I'm sure you would.

    Thanks so much for the suggestions to freeze it! I'd also debated on melting it down, buying some Christmas candy molds and making little candies out of it for gifts this year. I don't know too many people though who like white chocolate besides me...in my DH's family anyways.

    ~How fabulous! I just loooooove white chocolate. I especially like it in hot chocolate. Most basic cookbooks have a recipe for hot chocolate using semi-sweet chips. Just replace them with white. You can also mix the prepared hot chocolate(refrigerated) into your coffee. Yummo! I also make brownies using chocolate chips and I've always wanted to try it with white chips. I think it'd be pretty awesome....maybe with some crushed toffee bars added.....Oh and I almost forgot white chocolate cheesecake! If you can find a recipe that includes the word 'truffle' you should try it. I've had fabulous white chocolate cheesecake at restaurants. Almost forgot to add that I keep my chips in the freezer. I've never had a problem, even after pulling out chips that were a year old.~

    ~And one more idea, white chocolate covered pretzels! No molds needed. Truffles are also really easy to make.~

    Years ago I spent a summer working for a professional chocolatier. They kept their Callebaut tightly wrapped in the freezer. You've got a really good product there. It's actually made with real cocoa butter, not just sugar and carnuba wax.
