{{GUEST POST}} Frozen Key Lime Margarita Squares w/ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

Hello Hello Friends!

I have another great treat for you today! Erin from Dinners, Dishes and Desserts has come for a visit and I am so excited!

Erin is such a doll and I am so glad I could be her host today. She is always making up the best recipes and she always has such sweet things to say.

We have a long history of being cooking buddies with these blogs we have so I am so glad that I am able to share her with you.

Not to mention did you see what she made?!

I would eat a whole dozen of those Margarita Squares myself!

😉

Key Lime Margarita Squares

Hi, I’m Erin! I write over at Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts. I am a mom who loves to cook, bake, and try new recipes. I currently live in Colorado, and love hiking in the mountains. I hope that you will stop over to say Hi!

Key Lime Margarita Squares 2While Raven is off getting ready for her wedding, I am happy to fill in! Raven is such a sweet person, and I have loved following as her at Patrick were dating, buying a house, getting engaged, and now getting married! Raven has always been able to help out with fund raising for a bake sale, or doing a guest post for me, so I am excited that I get to help her out this time.

Citrus and key lime just scream summer to me. So these key lime margarita squares seemed like the perfect thing to share.

Not only are they spiked with a little tequila (completely optional if serving to kids), but you don’t have to turn on the oven to make them! When the heat of the summer hits, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven, so these frozen squares are the perfect answer.

Bring them to your next get together, and everyone will be happy. Trust me, you won’t go home with leftovers!
