Homemade chocolate is a delicious treat that your whole family can enjoy. Unfortunately, chocolate is a temperature-sensitive food. It can easily melt in an environment that is too hot, and this would ruin your homemade treat. After putting hard work and time into making your own chocolate, you can take a few precautions to keep the chocolate from losing its shape and flavour.

  2. 2

    Wrap the chocolate in cling film, and store it in a cool room that does not have lights or does not get natural light. This will prevent the candy from being exposed to too much light.

  3. 3

    Wrap the homemade chocolate in cling film, and keep it in a room that is ideally 12.8 to 21.1 degrees Celsius. This will prevent your homemade treat from melting, as chocolate can begin to melt at around 31.1 degrees Celsius.
