Q: I am having a sleepover with some high school girls that I mentor through my church. I like to cook with them, especially since cooking for them often means microwave mac and cheese. I already have the dinner covered (individual grilled pizzas), but I am really struggling with the dessert.

Readers, what ideas do you have?
