Margarita Dessert Bars (Tequila bars with OOMPH!) (Recipe)

I have updated this post since its original posting....

Margarita Dessert Bars (or Tequila Dessert Bars) are a fun and delicious take-a-long adult dessert. I have made the bars for a football party and a concert tailgating party!  It tastes like a little margarita and were a hit!
 Here is the original recipe is from Food Network (including their picture of the Tequila Bars, because I forgot to take a picture. DUH!).  I have revised the recipe though, since I found it needed more OOMPH!  ;)   

My updated ingredients are:
  • one 12 ounce box vanilla wafers
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), melted
  • 1/2 cup tequila (I used Patron Silver)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (I used a good quality key lime juice)
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites
  • one 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • For the drizzle,
    • 1 part - Agave nectar (I have found it in my local grocery store and at the local liquor store near the Patron)
    • 2 parts - tequila (I have tried Patron Silver and Patrol Gold. Both are good!)
Follow the recipe as in the original recipe from Food Network with these updated ingredients.
When preparing the drizzle, mix 2 parts Patron Gold and 1 part Agave Nectar. Apply the drizzle to the Tequila bars just before serving.    

A fun way to present the Margarita Dessert Bars and clue in other party-goers is to place a miniature empty bottle of Patron in the center of the plate and place the cut Margarita Dessert Bars around the bottle.

Tastes like a margarita! Delicious way to celebrate with friends!

Enjoy More!

Roadside Find (Photoshop exercise)

 I found an AWESOME find in the parking lot after dinner tonight and had to share!    How often do you come across a classic car like this!

Okay, I admit that wasn't how I found it. Unfortunately, reality doesn't always provide a great backdrop. Instead, there may be construction, wires, and distractions.  Here is the original untouched photo. I could not resist grabbing my camera though and running into the street!

What a difference a few minutes on Photoshop will do!  A little TLC makes all the difference! 

Please swing by and check out my new site Sawdust and Hoops, if you haven't already!  It's a young blog, but with Spring arriving, I plan to have A LOT to blog about very soon!

Enjoy More!
