   Whether it is white chocolate, baking chocolate, milk chocolate or some kind of chocolate confection, proper storage is key. Since it can easily absorb flavors from food or other products situated nearby, chocolate should be tightly wrapped and stored away from pungent odors. The ideal temperature for storage is somewhere between 65 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 20 C), with no more than 50% to 55% relative humidity. If stored properly, you can expect milk chocolate and white chocolate to stay in good quality for up to six months.
