I’m a lucky girl!

I came home Christmas night with a bunch of Meyer lemons. Not wasting anytime, I jumped on Twitter and asked if anyone had any killer recipes using lemons.

You gotta love Twitter!

Krista from The Doubled Dipped Life rose to the call and shared a recipe a friend had given to her. She loved it.

It was a lemon bar with a twist!

It had white chocolate chips in the bars.

White chocolate and lemon are a match made in heaven, who knew?

The Hubby wrinkled his nose when I told him I was making lemon bars. He’s a chocolate kind of guy.

He ate a 1/4 of the pan. Guess he liked them!

I think you will too!

I know my friend Barbara did!

I am absolutely crazy about lemon desserts and this sounds wonderful! I came across a recipe for limoncello using meyer lemons. If I ever had enough meyer lemons I would probably try my hand at that. Happy new year!!

I just wandered over from Miranda's, and what a nice place to start! Hubby loves white chocolate…

White choc is my favorite. When I scan the dessert menus at restaurants, a white chocolate alternative causes me to weaken and order away. White choc in lemon bars….even better.

Love the sound of lemon bars with white chocolate… so decadent! I think I could also finish 1/4 of the pan… or maybe the whole thing? :)
