This is one of my favorite desserts to make for bible study night or to take to a picnic.  It travels well and everyone seems to love it – kids and adults alike.

Of course, if you are a Trekkie (like my family), this is also a great snack while binge-watching on Netflix.

As Captain Picard says, “Make it so!”
