Key Lime Pie Bars Recipe

I have been on a sweet tooth KICK lately! Someone stop me before it’s too late! These key lime pie bars are sooooo good. And to be honest, I’m not much of a fruit dessert gal.

I like anything chocolate and cheesecake, and the fruit desserts just don’t seem to measure up to me. BUT these are up to pair with my typical chocolate fix! They are creamy with just the right amount of “limyness”.

These are perfect for summer because they are citrusy and give off that summer vibe. I’ve been making these for a couple of years now and I fall in love every time I make them! This recipe is an adaption from one of my favorite food bloggers Marzia at ‘Little Spice Jar’! Shout out to the beautiful Marzia for such an amazing recipe! I just had to share this with you all and I know you will love it as much as I do!
