These are best stored indivdually wrapped in waxed paper and frozen --- here's a tip, if you plan on making these on a regular basis just keep all ingredients from step#5 already measured in a ziploc plastic bag in the fridge (except the egg) this will save some time when preparing, and there will be no measuring to do!

- 1⁄2 cup honey (or 1/2 cup half maple syrup and half honey)
