NOTES

The bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days. However they are best eaten within 24 hours before they start to dry out.

They can also be frozen. Simply wrap them individually in parchment or in individual freezer boxes. They will defrost at room temperature in about 30 minutes.
