I have no idea how long it would keep, but I know chocolate is quick to absorb odors, which is why you’re not supposed to keep it in the fridge!  You don’t want your chocolate to taste like last night’s dinner.  I would imagine the same would happen from keeping the chocolate and jelly beans together for too long. (Except it would taste like jelly beans, not dinner… lol)

i think you should check the expiration dates on the candy packages… usually like when you buy the big bag of mini snickers or something there is an expiration date (i think LOL)

Not that I would know anyone personally who would do this, you understand… No one who would eat Jelly Belly beans from Easter weekend that haven’t been in a sealed container at all since then… But if I did know such a person, who ate late at night while reading wedding websites, she might say that the beans were not at all stale. The texture and flavor was still very fresh. (And I do know what Jelly Bellys taste like stale, because as a kid I would horde them until they were rock hard, lol.)

So I think that you would be safe to bag the jellybeans in advance. I’m not sure about the flavor crossover, though.

I know that old chocolate tends to fade to a whitish color. So if you do it too soon you may have the m&m’s turning white on you.

I love the m&m idea. This is what I am doing, except I am getting mine personalized 🙂
