Frozen desserts - any good ones?

I've been asked to take a dessert to ILs Boxing Day meal. It's 2-3 hour drive.

Could I buy something frozen and let it thaw on the journey over or is that dodgy?

Any alternative suggestions? Not sure I can make anything as it'd have to be done on Christmas Eve at the latest.

Yeah i would or even a fresh one near thr end of your journey all the supermarkets are open boxing day I think.

Ooh, are they! Didn't know that, bit risky though. I tried to buy a tree today and here all gone, so god knows what the dessert aisle will look like on Boxing Day grin

Very risky but surely there will be some kind of dessert there. Loads of cakes will still be around. Cheesecakes? Ice creams? Fresh fruit salad with cream?

Bit of a cheat but I'd bring meringue nests, cream and strawberries and make up pavlovas when I got there.

Lidl do frozen salted caramel/triple chocolate cheesecakes. Both absolutely amazing.

Maybe a frozen brûlée cheesecake? They take 4 hours to defrost. I know they really take that long because I've often cracked and tried to eat them before they were thawed (top tip: you have to eat around the edges).

Get the Asda Black Forest one. It’s lovely. Not an old style Black Forest gateau with chocolate flakes etc., it’s more modern looking. We had it for a dinner party this weekend. Takes 4 hours to defrost.
