No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake Bars: Review and Giveaway (Ends 3/8) CLOSED

Monday, February 21, 2011 Posted by Dina N


My kids love helping out in the kitchen. They enjoy cooking, baking, mixing the ingredients, and of course eating the end result. We try simple new recipes all the time. Recently, we made the No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake Bars from Plentiful Pantry.

The No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake Bars come in a beautiful box that contains two bags of mix: cookie crust and cheesecake filling. All you need to add is butter, water, and cream cheese. The preparation is very simple and just right for my little chefs. We melted butter and mixed it with the Oreo cookie crust mix, then pressed it down into an 8x8 baking pan lined with plastic wrap. Next, we got out a 16 oz tub of low-fat cream cheese, added a cup of hot water and the cheesecake filling mix, then blended everything with the mixer. It took just minutes to prepare - even with my little helpers licking the spoons and the mixing bowl.

You can top the dessert with shredded chocolate or garnish with lime zest. My young chefs decided it needed cocoa and dark chocolate morsels to match the chocolate Oreo crust... The hardest part is waiting for an hour so that the cheesecake bars can chill in the fridge. I left them chill for about two hours but next time I would leave the pan in the fridge overnight. After 2 hours, the crust was nice and firm while the filling was still  soft.

We tackled the recipe in the afternoon so the family can enjoy it after dinner. I am not much of a key lime person, so my favorite part was the crust. Everyone thought the bars were delicious. Although the package provides 16 servings, to my family it's more like 8.

Besides the No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake Bars mix, you can find tons of deliciously sounding products at Plentiful Pantry. Use coupon code JANB20 to get 20% off the entire site! Hurry, the savings opportunity expires at the end of February.
