In an effort to make something festive for St. Patty’s day I went for a dessert. Of course. Lemon Lime Bites – a dessert I have never attempted turned out quite tasty.
If you are looking for something chewy, moist, light and fresh – you have found the right dessert. These St. Patty’s Lemon Lime Bites are just that. I think next time I would just garnish with a lime or lemon but I thought the bright green cherry was fun too.
What are you doing to celebrate? I hope to have a few more green foods or drinks and do some fun crafts with the kiddo. Enjoy!
