Hi Majorie!

Yes, this recipe freezes great. Just store in an airtight bag or container for up to 2 months in the freezer-thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat in the microwave. I recommend add the frosting after freezing.

Thanks!

I made these for Christmas morning and they were better than the real thing (which I had for the skinny people in my life). I used sugar free vanilla icing for the top and mixed everything together because I didn’t read the instructions first and OMG soooo good!!!!
