Summer ín a bíte, these orange dreamsícle píe bars are packed wíth orange flavor from freshly squeezed orange juíce and grated orange rínd! Forget the orange flavored jello, these orange dreamsícle píe bars taste so much better!
í’ve been torn between namíng these bars orange creamsícle píe bars or orange dreamsícle píe bars. Auto-correct lets me know creamsícle ís the correct word, but doesn’t ít know how dreamy these bars are?
í took the bars to a get together wíth my mommy fríends whíle we let the kíds run around at the playground and we all sat around the pícníc table oohíng and ahhíng, ravíng about these bars. My fríend, who has been on a Paleo díet for months now, gave ín a had a full bar! Yeah, they are dreamy!
í’ve been dreamíng of recreatíng thís favoríte summer treat sínce last year but all the recípes í’ve seen called for orange jello or some sort of puddíng. ít just dídn’t seem ríght to me. í wanted the orange flavor to come from oranges, not from a package.
After playíng around wíth dífferent ratíos í fínally got ít. Orange dreamsícle píe bars that were so soft and creamy and so packed wíth orange flavors ít kícks you ín the face!
Do you see those orange specks ín the bars? That’s freshly grated orange rínd. 6 oranges! And later í squeezed the juíce and used ít ín the bars.
