"KEY LIME" CLOUD SQUARES

If you are looking for a refreshing summer dessert.  Look no further.....this is a special treat for sure. Great lime flavor, refreshing and light!  So good.

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs, divided
¼ cup butter, melted
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O lime flavor gelatin
1 cup ice cubes
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup lime juice
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP whipped topping

DIRECTIONS:

* Reserve 1 Tbsp. graham crumbs. Mix remaining crumbs with butter; press into bottom of plastic wrap lined 9-inch square pan.  Refrigerate until ready to use.

In a small bowl, add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved.  Add ice; stir 2 min. or until thickened.  Remove any unmelted ice.  Beat cream cheese in medium bowl until creamy.  Gradually beat in milk, then lime juice.  Add gelatin; mix well.  Whisk in 1 cup Cool Whip. Pour over crust.

Refrigerate 6 hours or until firm; Cover with remaining Cool Whip just before serving; sprinkle with reserved graham crumbs.  Use plastic wrap handles to remove dessert from pan before cutting into squares.  

* I chose to use graham cracker squares for the top of mine, versus the crumbs.

Enjoy!

Thanks to Kraft recipes for this yummy treat!
