Summer is here and as much as I love chocolate in all its many incarnations, warm weather calls for treats that are a bit lighter and brighter than my favorite winter fare. The higher temperatures also mean we’re less likely to gravitate towards large treats, preferring instead to savor smaller bites and brighter flavors. This dessert fits that bill in all ways and more.
These may be mix based, but I guarantee that you’ll overlook that once you’ve gotten a taste of these little explosions of flavor. There is simply nothing here not to love. Every bite is an immersion in all that is wonderful about lemon. Tart, sweet and tangy with just a hint of saltiness in the glaze. Eating one of these bars is sort of like drinking lemonade mixed with rocket fuel. It’s an unforgettable experience.
Simple, wonderful and light. Perfect for the summer no matter where you are. Please give this recipe a try. And if you make something like it, feel free to leave a link in the comments.

What I would have done Differently had I thought of it at the time:
A bit more salt in the glaze is all I can imagine. Aside from that only willpower is keeping me from another one.
