- Avoid excessive pressure: When placing it in the pan, do not press it too hard. It can make the dessert very dense.
- Freshness matters: Use fresh marshmallows for best results. Stale ones will not thaw smoothly.
These desserts are best enjoyed fresh, but if you have leftovers:

- Freeze: Wrap individual squares in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container. Can be frozen for up to a month.
- Reheating: Although they are best at room temperature, if you freeze them, let them thaw naturally or leave them for a few seconds in the microwave.
