      1. rose says:

        Hey can these freeze?

        1. Lucy Mathieson says:

          Hi Rose, I don’t tend to freeze them as sometimes the cream cheese filling will pop out in tiny little sections through the chocolate. However, I do know that other people have frozen them in an airtight container before and been happy with the results. Good luck!!
