My amazing Husband loves Key Lime and coconut. When I gave him a piece of these Key Lime Coconut Bars I am pretty sure he was transported to a happy place. He went back for seconds instantly and told me this may be his favorite dessert I have ever made. I take that as really high praise considering the Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies, Nutella CheeseCake and Crock Pot Apple Crisp I have made recently.
These Key Lime Coconut Bars are so dang easy to make. The only thing you heat up is the butter in the microwave. I think these will be perfect for this summer when I don’t want to turn the oven or stove top on.
