After it has complexly cooled, but into bite sized piece. Believe me this stuff is RICH the pieces should be on the small side.
If you didn't get a box from us this year, here is a virtual 3Bs baking box for you to enjoy.
The boxes were almost too small for our treats this year.
Merry Christmas to you! XOXOXO Shelbi
