My friend Janie made these for a cookie exchange. She said the recipe is from Pillsbury. Will make you pucker up.

I had high expectations and it didn't really live up to them. I wanted a stronger flavor than the bars had... was too nervous to add more margarita mix, as I didn't want to make the bars too runny. Maybe with the limeade concentrate they would be better.

I made these for a graduation party. I used limeade concentrate instead of margarita mix but they were wonderful. Everyone wants the recipe.

I love it when I try something new and it turns out better than I expected. That is the story with these bars. I made them for a shower and tasted a couple before I took them over. Then I ate a couple more on the drive over. Very hard to eat just one. Rich taste with nice lime flavor. It's a wonder there were any left by the time I got there. Thanks, this one is great for spring.
