Freezing the Halloween candy?

I bought way too much Halloween candy, will freezing it make the chocolate turn funny colors? I need to get this out of my house, or I am going to be a fat toad!
I thought about donating it to our school's food bank, but will probably get the tsk, tsk, because it isn't healthy, I begged my husband to take it to work, he declined!
I have 8 bags of snickers, and have already eaten 3 candy bars, pms, halloween, and bags of candy are ruining my willpower, LOL!

  • If you don't have a vacuum sealer, do the budget vacuum seal - put the candy in a freezer bag, fill your sink with water, lower the bag into the water until it comes up to the ziplock line, seal it, then take it out of the water. The only thing that will mess it up is extra air - the less air you have with it, the less damage. Also, if it's candy that has a lot of air in the wrappers (if you press on it gently you can tell the wrapper isn't touching the candy), poke a tiny hole at the end to let the air out first.

  • I have a big bag of candy as well. I think I'm going to donate it to the teacher's lounge. It might not get high marks for a food drive, but I bet the teacher's won't turn it away.

  • BTW, chocolate does well in cooler temps, but I don't know about long term freezing. However when it gets over a certain degree it starts to separate and then it gets like that chalky film on it. That means that it has gotten too warm and separated.

  • You can "donate" any Snickers or PB cups to me :P

    Yes, you can freeze the candy. I actually prefer my chocolate frozen.

  • BTW, I've never had chocolate turn weird colors after being frozen/thawed, unless it was for a REALLY long time, and then its freezer burnt and doesn't taste very good anyway. A couple months shouldn't hurt it.

  • The chocolate will turn white on the outside when you freeze it.... that has to do with condensation on the surface of the chocolate when you defrost it.

  • Missanic I eat frozen snickers sometimes, but if you let them thaw, does the chocolate turn weird? I was thinking about saving them for our Christmas party at school, but don't want to have grey chocolate.
