      Key Lime Parfaits
      2 cups Cheerios
      3 tbs sugar
      2 tbs water
      2 tsp butter, melted
      1 cup Cool Whip
      1 tbs lime juice
      2 Yoplait Light Fat Free Key lime pie yogurt
      Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet and 12×12-inch sheet of foil with cooking spray. In food processor, place cereal and sugar.

      Process with on-and-off motions until fine crumbs form. Add water and melted butter. Process until thoroughly mixed.

      Spread cereal mixture evenly in center of cookie sheet. Use foil, sprayed side down, to press cereal mixture slightly. Roll with rolling pin into 12×8-inch rectangle, about 1/8 inch thick.

      With sharp knife, score mixture into 1-inch squares. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until squares are golden brown. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.

      Meanwhile, in small bowl, place whipped topping. Fold in lime juice until blended. Break cereal mixture apart at scored lines.

      Reserve 4 cereal squares. Crumble remaining squares into small pieces. In each dessert bowl or 12-oz parfait glass, layer 1/4 cup crumbled cereal squares, half container of yogurt and scant 1/4 cup whipped topping mixture.

      Repeat layers. Top each parfait with 2 reserved cereal squares. 2 servings

      it’s one of those desserts that LOOKS hard, but isn’t! it’s a pretty dessert, too;-) and if I remember correctly…don’t you prefer to use sugar substitutes, Kim? you can use the sugar-free versions and Nutrasweet.
