Do-Ahead Tip
Cool bites completely on wire rack. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Freeze uncovered at least 2 hours. Place bites in labeled airtight freezer container, and freeze no longer than 2 months. About 30 minutes before serving, heat oven to 350°F. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet about 18 minutes or until warm.
