This is the perfect light dessert to enjoy on a hot day. It’s no bake (yay!) and is a great way to use those sweet summer strawberries! You can serve these bars straight from the fridge, or if it’s a really hot day, try them frozen!

We have had a surprisingly mild summer. Sure some days have been hot but we have had a lot of days where a jacket was necessary! Crazy!

I enjoy a no bake treat no matter what the weather is like. Less time in the kitchen means more time playing outside with my little ones. These bars are easy to put together and I like easy :)

If you choose not to freeze them, you need to understand that these are creamy bars. They are not sturdy-grab-one-and-run-out-the-door bars. They are more of an eat-on-a-plate-with-a-fork bars. Ok? They are like pie but in bar form :)

Ok, there is one left in the freezer and it’s calling my name.  See ya next time!
