Strawberry Lemonade Bars are an easy dessert! Fresh fruit is the star of these delicious bars. Spring flavors can be enjoyed any time of year!
I used to love magic. David Copperfield was the big name when I was growing up. Watching his shows, I was a mix of awe, fear and excitement. If David could make something disappear, maybe I could make my parents disappear. It’s not as though I wanted them to disappear forever. Just long enough for me to stuff my face with forbidden junk food.
My kids have recently discovered magic. YouTube has helped them discover their inner David Copperfield. Their tricks leave a lot to be desired, but far be it from me to tell them otherwise. That’s the beauty of kids, they believe in themselves. They will do all sorts of tricks for us and feel certain they are pulling the wool over our eyes. As if we were that gullible.
How to Make Strawberry Lemonade Bars
I recently took a turn with magic. I turned a Strawberry Lemonade Pie into Strawberry Lemonade Bars. Pretty neat huh? I found this pie recipe on Karosyrup.com. I was drawn to this recipe because of the lemon flavor. I’m tired of winter and the combination of lemon and strawberries made me think of spring. With seasonal fruit and fresh flavors, they are perfect for any springtime celebration from Easter through Mother’s Day and beyond. Easter brunch plans coming up? Welcome spring and end your feast with this showstopping sweet treat.
This recipe was easy to convert to bars. I used a yellow cake mix as my base, then followed the lemon filling per the original recipe and baked it. I combined Karo® Light Syrup with strawberries and topped my bars just before serving. Keep the berries refrigerated until ready to use and try to avoid topping the whole pan of lemonade bars unless you like soggy bars.
These were so refreshing and simple to make. While the Strawberry Lemonade Pie is perfectly fine, these strawberry lemonade bars are tart, soft and absolutely lovely. An easy, crowd-pleasing recipe that is sure to disappear quickly.
