    Once you make it and cool it, how long will it last (unopened)? And should you store it in the refrigerator? Thanks.

      Hi Kelly,

      We always eat it so fast, so we never stored it long. I do put in the refridgerator, but I don’t imagine you would have to.

    How easy! I am going to serve this with apple slices and other fruit this season. Thanks — I would have never thought of doing this!
