I’m adding this to the “foods that when I eat them, any and all self control flies out the window” list. Right behind Thin Mints and chocolate chip cookies.
In general, I’m a sucker for any dessert with chocolate. And now I’m a sucker for these key lime bars. So..so..so..SO..SO rich, smooth and summery-scrumptious!
- No bake.
- Coconutty flavors that practically whisk you to the tropics.
- A lovely vanilla wafer crust.
- Key lime. (Yes, you need to use key lime. Not just regular lime. Because key limes have a deeper, richer flavor.)
- Summer, summer, summer…the perfect summer dessert!
Also, these are egg-free! A perfect summer dessert for those who don’t tolerate eggs well 🙂
