Key West is on my bucket list of places that I want to visit. Even though I haven't made it there myself, I've seen a lot of photographs of this picturesque paradise and talked to a lot of people that have traveled to Key West which only makes me want to visit even more. One of the things that I'm most excited about when I do make it to the island is eating as much Key Lime Pie as I possibly can. Conducting my own personal taste test in search of the "best" key lime pie in the keys. I can only imagine how much better the silky smooth treat will taste when sitting at a corner cafe on the island of Key West.
I've heard that there are slices of pie dipped in rich dark chocolate and served on the street corners in Key West. Is there any wonder why I'm anxious to visit this tropical paradise? Since visiting the Keys isn't in the near future for me, I decided to create my own version of a chocolate dipped key lime pie pop.
I made a batch of these little treats a week a couple of weeks ago and then stored them in the freezer until Easter. I served these on my Easter dessert buffet. Needless to say - everyone else liked them just as much as I did.
Key Lime Pie Pops
Melt butter and add graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar for crust.
Whisk together filling ingredients.
Spoon filling over crust and bake 15 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in pan.
Peel off paper liners and insert a stick into each pie. Return to freezer for another hour.
Melt chocolate and dip each pie into melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper lined baking sheets to cool.
Serve on trays or stand in glasses to serve.
These key lime pie pops are easy to make and really delicious but the best part is that you can keep a batch in your freezer all summer long. Key Lime Pie pops make the perfect little summertime treat.
