- If you don’t plan on serving them right away, I recommend storing the frosted bars in the refrigerator. This will keep the frosting stable.
- Or, you can bake the bars a day in advance and tightly wrap them in plastic to keep at room temperature. The next day, you can make the frosting and frost them before serving.
- Store any leftover bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
