  • Apply non-stick cooking spray to a form (ice cube trays will do nicely), shallow pie pan, or jelly-roll pan.
  • Pour the hot mixture into the pan or form and allow to set.
  • When cool, release from form or cut into cubes as applicable and roll each piece in powdered sugar, granulated sugar, or coconut.
  • Store at room temperature in airtight container.
