So if you already displayed "Chocolate and marshmallows”, then yes, you should be able to save it in the variable by entering "dessert = _" (parentheses not needed). I tried it to confirm and it worked.

The previous string was “Chocolate and marshmallows” I was thinking since _ replicates the previous string that then I assign dessert to the string I could Dessert = (_)
