  • Author: shaemakes


The perfect summertime dessert. A homemade graham cracker crust filled with a frozen, sweet, tart and creamy key lime filling and topped with a Magic Shell chocolate topping. Refreshing and a total hit at your next summer barbecue!



For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoons melted butter

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup key lime juice, fresh squeezed or this one
  • 114 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 18 oz block cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 34 drops green food coloring
  • 1/31/2 cup Smuckers Magic Chocolate Shell


For the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a 9 inch pie pan liberally with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar until butter is fully incorporated.
  4. Press the crust into the pie pan and bake for 7-10 minutes until the edges have slightly turned golden brown.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

For the filling:

  1. With a hand mixer or in your stand mixer add cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk and mix on medium speed until homogeneous.
  2. Add your lime juice and food coloring and mix on medium speed until the liquids are fully incorporated.
  3. In a separate medium sized bowl, using a hand mixer, whisk together cream and sugar until stiff peaks form.
  4. Fold the whipping cream into the cream mixture until no more white streaks remain.
  5. Pour the filling into the cooled crust, smoothing it over on top so it has a smooth surface.
  6. Freeze for a minimum of 8 hours, preferably overnight and up to 1 week.
  7. When ready to eat, remove from the freeze and pour the Magic Shell chocolate all over the top of the pie. Crumble a graham cracker over the top if desired (like in the pictures).
  8. Once the chocolate has hardened, use a really sharp knife to cut into slices and serve immediately.
