🌡️StoringKeep these lime bars, in a sealed container, refrigerated for up to 4 days. If you want to keep them longer, then freeze them for up to 3 months in a sealed container. If you are stacking them, put parchment paper between the layers. Sprinkle them with the green sparkles and/or powdered sugar just prior to serving. 👪 Serving SizeThis recipe makes 16 squares, but I cut them in half diagonally to get 32 triangles (as shown in photos)📖 Variations
