How far in advance can I make Christmas candy?

I want to make chocolate bark and sea salt caramels to send to family for Christmas. How far in advance can I make them? Will they go bad if I make them now (December 6) and mail in a week?

for the caramels, if you refrigerate them after you package them they can last for weeks, so you should be just fine making them now.

Hard chocolate bark, brittle, and caramel will last. If you have anything time/temp sensitive send by FedEx in a sealed box and a frozen pack wrapped in a ziploc.
