These easy Key Lime Parfaits almost scream summer. Cool lime cream layered with crunchy graham crumbs makes for a great do ahead dessert.
2 (8oz) pkgs cream cheese, softened
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup bottled Key lime juice
3 cups frozen nondairy whipped topping, thawed (such as Cool Whip)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
Garnish: More graham cracker crumbs and sliced lime

2) Preheat oven to 350℉.
3) In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Spread in a thin layer on a rimmed baking sheet.

Here’s a new short song that is freaking awesome. First song I’ve heard with a Breaking Bad reference.
And a sweet, if not offbeat, tune.
“Happy days are here once again
He can play connect 4 with his kids again
Sometimes they cheat
Sometimes he cheats
But most important is quality time”
