You can cut them into squares or into longer sticks. If you ’ ra giving them as a endow, it ’ s nice to cut them into sticks and wrap each one in a little piece of wax paper or reasonably sugarcoat wrappers .
Once they are cut into squares, they are still quite bendable so we store them in the electric refrigerator until about an hour before serving ! They are perfect dipped or drizzled with chocolate and sprinkled with a little ocean salt ( or skip the chocolate for a salted caramel ) .
