It is recommended that they are eaten within a day of making them. If you wish to use the microwave for preparing the treats, make sure to melt butter and marshmallow in the microwave as well. Melt them on high for about 2 to 3 minutes, but make sure you do stir occasionally or else the mixture will be scorched. While cutting the treats into bars, use a pizza wheel cutter which is greased with butter or cooking spray.
