Best way to store expensive Chocolate

Rosie Posie | Mar 14, 200609:04 PM     2

Purchased a giant hunk of Valrhona chocolate recently - Les Grands Crus Pur Caraibe 66% - 6lbs 9oz. What is the best way to store this? I like to use it for chocolate dipped fruits and chocolate fondue but don't make desserts that often.

In the past I usually keep chocolate in the freezer until ready to use when I bought a large chunk, but this cost way too much to store incorrectly. I want to maintain as much of the excellent quality over the next few months as possible. Thanks for the input.
