Chef Notes:
  • How To Reheat: To reheat it simply add it back to the slow cooker on low heat until it is melted and hot.  You can also add it to a microwave-safe bowl and cook it in the microwave until melted and hot.
  • Storing and Freezing: Cover it and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.  To freeze, cover with plastic wrap or place in a plastic container and keep it in the freezer for up to 2 months.  To reheat, simply add it right to your slow cooker.
