I was out of just about everything except for a few staples and I had a husband and daughter with a sweet tooth... it was cold and I wasn't venturing out for groceries if I didn't have to, which is how I happened upon this little gem! It's easy, quick, and satisfies even the meanest sweet tooth! I'm keeping it in my arsenal for sure!
