    how far in advance those can be made? couple hours or right before the party?

    • Hi Olga, It depends on how you would like to serve them. If you want them just at room temperature, you can make them couple hours ahead, refrigerate and then bring back to room temperature, or if you want them hot, then make them right before serving.
