Pina Colada Bars
These Piña Colada Bars are quick and easy to make, even for the youngest in your family, who might be just learning to bake. There is neither stove top nor oven time with this light and lovely, summer time treat. It does require some beating and mixing, preferably with your mixer, so that might need some oversight if little helping hands are attempting the recipe. Still, this recipe is that easy. And it is a wonderful sweet blend perfect for the summer heat. Be sure to really chill it so that the flavors come through well, and it has some cooling effect on your friends, kids and family when you serve it. They will be grateful!
This dish can serve as something casual you just pop together when friends come over, or when kids have a play date, and you want to serve them a special treat. It is also lovely enough to serve as a gracious dessert for any special dinner. It is a wonderfully versatile dessert to serve. One thing you might consider is to take one-half of the coconut and blend it right in to the cream cheese blend. That way, the flavor becomes infused throughout the dish. Then sprinkle the rest on top (or add more, as you like, for really coconut-y flavor). The coconut you sprinkle on top can also be lightly toasted for a bit of color and additional flavor.
This is the dish that says summer time is here; let’s have fun. It is a wonderful play on the drink of the same name. As such, this dish is sweet, rich and dee-lish. Everyone will enjoy it, and your family will certainly clamor to have it every day. But keep it special. Why not check out the website today, and see if you have the ingredients for a weekend treat?
