is it ok to freeze chocolate and for how long? I received 50 lbs of chocolate chips from my sister. I want to freeze some but not sure how long they will last.
Yes, perfectly fine to freeze it. It will last approximately forever, frozen.
Yes chocolate can be frozen if required, it can extend the shelf life by 50% if not more, but not forever. It is suggested to slow the cooling/freezing process.
Depending on how you want to use it, depends on whether you need to carefully thaw it out before using.
Many professional chocolatiers have information on these topics online.
