Celebrate Memorial Day With Krusteaz {Raspberry Key Lime Bars Recipe}

219 views

I have such great memories of celebrating Memorial Day with my family. My mom always made it a point to take us to see family gravesites and also honor fallen soldiers. I am so proud to live in the United States of America and I am so grateful for the people who serve in our armed forces. I know all the freedoms my family and I have are protected by those brave men and women. I am so grateful my mom taught me how special Memorial Day is. After we went and laid flowers at different cemeteries, my family would get together for a big BBQ. It is so fun getting together with family and friends to enjoy some delicious food. It’s always our first big get together of Summer!

Sometimes feeding a crowd can be stressful! Making sure you have the meat all prepped for the BBQ, side dishes ready to go, and plenty of desserts there is plenty of work to do. This Memorial Day let Krusteaz help you out and make some of the dessert prep easier. My family loves having Krusteaz pancakes and waffles, but they also have really delicious dessert mixes. There are so many great bars, muffin, and cake mixes!

One of my favorite Summer treats is lemon and key lime bars, but this year I wanted to make them extra special. Raspberries also scream summer to me and I love raspberry and limes together. They are such a refreshing combination. So with the help of Krusteaz Key Lime Bar mix I made Raspberry Key Lime Bars!

Krusteaz is so great because everything you need is in the box or basic things you probably already have in your kitchen. To make Raspberry Key Lime bars I followed the directions on the box with only 2 more additions. After cooking the crust for 8 minutes I carefully spread on a thin layer of raspberry preserves. White the crust was cooking all you need for the filling is water, 3 eggs and the mix in the box. I carefully chopped up about 1/4 Cup raspberries and folded them into the Key Lime filling. You pour the filling over the hot crust and continue baking. My bars took longer to bake than what the box called for. I think because the raspberries add a little more moisture also I am at a high elevation. But they turned out so super delicious! I am going to be making these all summer long.

    Looks pretty tasty, I like all foods with powdered sugar involved. Yoplait has a good key lime pie yogurt for a quick fix but I do wish they would add some graham cracker crumbs.
