I have about 1/2 cup tempered chocolate left over from dipping my truffles. Can I refrigerate it and keep it for my caramels I am making tomorrow?

Sure thing! But once the chocolate sets, you'll have to melt and then re-temper it get the proper crystallization to use the chocolate to cover the caramels. If the chocolate is just used in the caramels themselves, no need to temper again.
You’ll be living la bella vita in no time.
