Surprisingly easy to both make and assemble - baking time is not long either... all in all, a fantastic dessert (and quite impressive) that is no sweat to put together. I should mention that I rarely ever even make dessert, and I STILL thought this was a cinch!!! Everyone loved them; will definitely make again.
