Answer

In parallel.

Work Step by Step

The energy stored in a capacitor network is $PE=\frac{1}{2}CV^{2}$, where C is the equivalent resistance of the combination of capacitors. The provided voltage is the same so the capacitor configuration with the larger equivalent capacitance stores more energy. That is the parallel combination.
