I really had fun with this one. I wanted to make something simple, quick and easy to make, and something everyone would choose. I had my family try it, and their wow reactions really made me smile, so I knew I had to share it with all of you. Give it a try, leave a comment below, and share it with your friends 🙂 Thank you!

Much love,
