Yes, most of the snack recipes provided in our Iftar collection are ideal for preparing in advance and storing. You can make large batches of snacks and store them in airtight containers or ziplock bags to maintain freshness. During Ramadan, when there may be limited time for food preparation, this convenience can be particularly notable.
