I am the student assistant to the History Department at a university that was founded in 1935. To celebrate the school's 75th anniversary, we're holding a fair with booths to provide school information and sell little treats.
The History Department wants to come up with a dessert or treat that was popular in 1935. The other considerations are that a single portion would be best (like a cookie, but even something in bar/brownie form would be ok to portion out into baggies). And not too expensive ingredients. We're talking public Liberal Arts university!
Any suggestions at all would be appreciated! I know this is really specific so thanks in advance!
