Would this be a good dessert to bring to a family reunion?
This weekend I am heading 6 hours from where I live currently to go to my boyfriend's family reunion. I decided upon myself to show up with a dessert, but I've been having trouble finding what would be best to bring. I will, mostly likely, be travelling in a hot car for a long period of time and all the recipes that I have found online have asked me to refrigerate until once served. Of course, having common sense, that would not work and the dessert will melt and be ruined.
I found this toffee recipe that suggests I refrigerate but then store in an airtight container.
My question is whether or not you think this would melt, and do you think it would be a good dessert to bring to a family reunion? Let me know what you think, and feel free to post any recipes you might suggest, as well! Thank you!

It's only the chocolate on the top of the toffee that could melt. As long as you keep the container inside the car and not in the trunk, it should be fine.
Another suggestion could be a peach cobbler since peaches are at their peak right now. That can stay at room temperature for hours. Still travel with it in the car and not the trunk!

Six hours is a long time to travel with chocolate, and if it is cold, then it will get condensation on it even in the car. I would try something else.Source(s): Me.

Have you thought of using a cooler to transport a dessert? If you make one that uses a 13" x 9" pan you could cover it with tin foil if it does not have a lid.

I hope all of these help and I am sorry for all the links but I thought they would help and if you don't like these you could try a cobbler or a pie or even some sweet breads like banana or zucchini. or you can even try your skills at cakes or cupcakes and decorate them beautifully.
