Preparing cheese bits as a tiny dog reward: freeze, dry, fresh?

Clicker training here and want a tiny bit of cheese to use as high-value reward.
Only want 100% ched cheese, chopped into tiny bits, so no recipes, please.
How to best prepare/transport this?
Can I dry them on the counter or something? My past experience was oven-dried hot-dogs, but not for this dog. Cheese only. Seems messy though...any suggestions?
Thank you!

Spread cheddar cheese thinly across a microwave safe plate (if it is sharp cheddar, then use a bit of oil, very lightly. Regular cheddar has enough fat to not need oil.) Microwave in 20-30 second doses until the cheese becomes crisp but not burnt. You can shatter it with a tap of a knife but it still has oil and moisture. Only cook as much as you will use for 2-3 days and keep it in the fridge in a bag or wax paper wrap during that time.
