I have a recipe for chocolate covered ants and wanted to make it a few weeks ahead of time before a party - if I freeze them will they still be good in about two weeks?

You can freeze them, and they will be exactly as good as they were when you started. – Michael at Herbivoracious Aug 28 '10 at 22:01

You probably don't even need to freeze them. Chocolate has a very long shelf life in your pantry, from 1-2 years depending on fat/milk content.

You can freeze it, but it may affect the texture or appearance.
