Happy Memorial Day! I feel like this weekend is always the perfect kick off for summertime fun and while we remember all those who have fallen for our freedom, we celebrate their bravery and willingness to serve by spending time with our friends and family and eating delicious food. My new Frozen Chocolate Key Lime Pie is the perfect warm weather dessert. Homemade graham cracker crust with a sweet and tart frozen key lime filling topped with a chocolate shell, because everything is better with chocolate.
I’m not kidding when I say this is one of my new favorite desserts of all time, and that’s saying something because I normally hate citrus desserts. I literally wouldn’t touch a citrus flavored dessert up until the last 6 months. I don’t know if my taste buds just changed once I turned 30 or what but for some reason I am coming around when it comes to citrus flavored desserts. I am still having a hard time with orange desserts and lemon but we’ll see if I can become converted.
Tips & Tricks:
- You can most definitely use a pre-made store bought graham cracker crust if you are wanting a shortcut.
- If you don’t want to go through the annoying task of juicing an entire bag of key limes, you can use this brand instead.
- I like to pop my hot crust into the freezer covered in a dish towel so it can cool down faster.
- I made this 10 days before I actually served it and it was incredible, so you can make it several days ahead if needed!
