If you’ve looked at any of our other recipes, you probably know that we are certified choco-holics. We’ll devour anything chocolatey, but that doesn’t mean we don’t also have a deep affinity for all things citrus as well. All things lemon and lime are our jam, so these “lemonies” are right up our alley. Picture a dense and rich, chewy bar that’s not a brownie, but that’s brownie-like; these lemonies are the bright and zesty equivalent to a dark and moody, fudgy brownie – the perfect counterbalance, if you will.
You may not have thought you could get a non-chocolatey dessert to be fudgy, but the richness of these squares achieves just that, a delicious fudginess. Plus, the glaze on top is both literally and figuratively the icing on the cake, offering up even more lemon flavor and the perfect glossiness to make these bars even tastier and cuter. We make them all the time during the spring and summer, plus, anytime we need a little, sunshine-y pick-me-up in the middle of the cold months, these do just the trick. Trust us, we can’t get enough of these, and you won’t be able to either!
