Decadent Pineapple Cream Cheese Bars

Pineapple Cream Cheese Bars a re a sweet, tropical treat.

 

 

It’s so hard traveling someplace nice and warm and coming back to wintry weather, rainy weather or weather that just can’t make up its mind on what season it should be when I am now firmly in need of some summer weather. That’s why my recent baking has all had a bit of a tropical flare to it because I need to feel like summer will be here soon and baking tropical treats does that for me. These Pineapple Cream Cheese Bars came about one day during spring break last week. The kids and I all got sick and the weather was hit or miss so it wasn’t much of a fun break for us.

Pineapple Cream Cheese Bars a re a sweet, tropical treat.

One day while running into the store for a few things (since that was all I could manage with a fever) I spotted pineapple cream cheese and immediately, possibly may have drooled a little. I love pineapple! I like eating it in the winter because not only is it delish but it also makes me think of sunshine and beaches. As soon as I saw this pineapple cream cheese it immediately came to me that I was going to make some Pineapple Cream Cheese Bars. Had I made them before? Heck no! I was determined though fever and all though to make them and I am so glad I did! They were such a pick me up for everyone in the house, especially my husband who was stuck with all of us sickies. He really enjoyed them!

Decadent Pineapple Cream Cheese Bars are a sweet, tropical treat.

Between the icing, the pineapple and the cream cheese these bars have a lovely flavor that is tropical, sweet and rich.

Pineapple & Lime Ice Cream Sodas

Pineapple & Lime Ice Cream Sodas

FTC Disclosure

St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that is known for its drinks, adult drinks that is. So while the adults are getting tipsy celebrating St.Patrick’s Day to the fullest extent why not make a drink for the kids so they can partake of the festivities too? I remember as a kid every time we went out to a restaurant that my parents would let us order Kiddie Cocktails (a.k.a. Shirley Temples) and we just loved them! We always felt like we were so grown up with our sophisticated drinks in hand complete with fancy toothpick with cherries and sometimes an orange wedge on it. Continuing with that idea, my mom and grandma would always make a big punch bowl full of some sherbert punch drink just for the kids at family get-togethers. Fast forward to me and I have continued this tradition with my own kids right up to yesterday afternoon with a new one.

Yesterday we woke up to another bout of ice and snow and after being stuck half in the driveway and half out in the street for almost an hour my hubby decided to brave the streets and walk to the train and I just decided to keep the kids home from school. Since the kids and I were confined to the house I decided to make them an early St. Patrick’s Day treat. I made them very green, very yummy, Pineapple & Lime Ice Cream Sodas. These were a yummy sweet drink and the kids really loved how green they were, particularly my 6-year-old whose favorite color is green.

Now, while the green color does lend itself to St. Patrick’s Day, this can certainly be made for birthday parties, Easter, Christmas or for any old reason during the hot summer months.

Ingredients
  1. 1 packet Lemon-Lime Kool-Aid
  2. 1 ltr. Green River Soda
  3. 4 c. pineapple juice
  4. 1 tub of lime sherbert
  5. 1 tub of pineapple sherbert
Instructions
  1. In a large pitcher combine the Kool-Aid packet, Green River and pineapple juice. Stir to combine. In tall glasses scoop 1-2 scoops of each flavor into each glass and then pour enough liquid over the top to reach the top of the glass. Serve and enjoy.
Notes
  1. This can also be made in a punch bowl. You would just combine all of the liquid ingredients in the bowl and then scoop the sherbert into the punch bowl. As it melts you will get a foamy top to the punch.
  2. For those of you wondering what Green River is it is a lime soda. It is a very, very green soda and you can substitute a lemon-lime soda for it if you can't get any.
