About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but ...

Most of the chocolates are soft-centered chocolates.

    My mouth is craving chocolate now!!!! You have some very interesting fillings for your chocolates. I am wondering if could create Christmas hostess gifts of chocolates. Would it be possible to make these batches one at a time, refrigerate them and create the sampling box/tray just before leaving my house? Could you perhaps suggest some other chocolate goodies that could be added? And finally, how would you identify the various chocolates ingredients [allergies, you know? I will need at least 10 gifts. Thanks for any help you could suggest.

    Absolutely. I do store my chocolates in the fridge, but of course, the longer they stay in the fridge, the condensation create the discoloring of the chocolate (not white chocolate). Since the filling was cottage cheese (farmer's cheese), they always have to be stored in the fridge.

    That is good that you ask about allergies. I have since living as vegan, which means I no longer really make chocolate, especially the white ones as cocoa butter is hell expensive. I have fudges recipe on one of my ibles too, perhaps they might interest you?

    All I could suggest is make a sticker or write down the ingredients, of which chocolate is which and stick it to the goodie-box or bag?
