Pretzel Crusted Key Lime Squares

This PRETZEL CRUSTED KEY LIME BAR RECIPE has been updated, and you can find the latest version HERE

I went to my first ever karaoke party on Saturday night.
It was an…experience.
I learned there are karaoke “types”:
Type 1: The practiced songstress.  She sings beautifully, has clearly done this before and even has a “signature song”
Type 2:  The “in-on-the-joke” singer.  This person gets up, knowing that singing isn’t their strong-suit, but still does it for the fun of it.
Type 3:  The delusional rocker.  This person thinks they can sing; thinks they have star quality, when in reality they are more Sanjaya than The Stones
Going into the evening I would have guessed that I was a Type 2.
Not so much.
My husband thought it would be great fun to video the evening, so I got the pleasure of watching back what everyone else witnessed first-hand.
When you’re singing you can’t really hear yourself, so the video footage was a real eye opener.  Apparently I go more for volume vs. musicality. “Type 3” all. the. way.
At one point during my second song (yes, there were multiple tone-deaf exhibitions)  a fellow party-goer came up and tried to make the song a “duet”.  I nearly elbowed her in the face.
Apparently I am a bit of a spotlight hog. Who knew?
I blame the microphone.  It has powers.
I’m amazed I still have friends.
So to apologize to the universe for degrading the human voice by way of “Summer Lovin'” I made some yummy lime bars.
I’m a salty-sweet gal, so I made these bars with a salty twist on the average lime squares.
The pretzel crust makes them yummy and different.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

This looks so ridiculously yummy and I really want to try it now! However, key lime juice is next to impossible to find where I live so I was wondering if you had an alternative to key lime juice? Or a sneaky way of “making” something taste like key limes?

Love love love your recipes and your wit!!

Hahha I suck at singing, so I always thought I'm type 2, luckily I've never had a video to prove otherwise. These bars look awesome, I love the sweet+salty combination.

you've just convinced me to never participate in karaoke, as i think i'm also a type 2 and would be humiliated to find i'm actually a type 3! 🙂
tasty bars–the filling doesn't compare in appeal to the crust for me!

What a neat idea. I love pretzels and I love key lime. So I'm sure I'd love pretzels & key lime together.
