Key Lime Cheesecake Bars with Toasted Coconut Crust
are absolutely delicious and very refreshing.
Made with a boxed Key Lime Bar Mix,
this recipe is fast and easy too.

I made these tangy and tasty
Key Lime Bars with Krusteaz Key Lime Bar Mix.
They turned out fantastic!

Krusteaz products are wonderful.
I have tried the Lemon Bar Mix and
Raspberry Bar Mix and both are excellent.

If you have never tried Krusteaz products before,
you need to pick up a few boxes and
give them a try,
you won't be disappointed.
