You can either store the fruit mixed together or in separate containers. You can store the pancakes, waffles, and croissants in a container or ziploc bag together. Everything can be stored in the fridge for 4-5 days.
When reassembling your board you’ll want to reheat your pancakes and waffles for about 45 seconds. I like to reheat them separately so I don’t overcrowd the microwave. Doing so will increase the cook time. It is not necessary to heat up the croissants, but you can zap them in the microwave for about 30 seconds to make them nice and soft.
