Forcing Bulbs ?

I bought a bag of 200 daffodill bulbs in the fall and unfortunately did not get them all planted, I have about 20 or so left, they are early blooming. I put the remaining ones in the refridgerator in the garage and there they've stayed.
They are still firm and healthy looking I was wondering if I brought them indoors and planted them could i force them to bloom in pots on my window ledge?

Thanks.

Go ahead and place potting soil in pots and water until water runs through bottom. Place pots in unheated garage to chill pot and soil. If you fill several pots, you can stagger planting times and have several bloom times. When ready to plant the first pot, do so in garage and allow the green shoots to get an inch or so tall before moving indoors to the warm window ledge.
