When I was 7 I spent the summer with my dad it Key West Florida. With the sandy beaches and calm waters this is the perfect place to remember when it is too cold.
The best dessert I had when I visited Key West was key lime pie. Once I had chocolate dipped key lime pie I loved it.
Adding chocolate makes it 10 times better. The first time I tried chocolate dipped key lime pie on a stick is when we stopped along the way to Key West at a gas station that sold it.
Ever since that I have been waiting for an excuse to make chocolate dipped key lime pie on a stick. ~ Isaiah
Chocolate dipped key lime pie on a stick
1 ½ cups graham crackers or crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
6 Tbsp butter, melted
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1(14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks
½ cup KEY lime juice
¾ cup sour cream
2 Tbsp KEY lime juice
3 Tbsp sugar9-14 Popsicle sticks
The first thing you do is crush your graham crackers. You can also use the pre-crushed graham cracker crumbs. I used my food processor to crush my graham crackers but you don’t have to. You should get the crumbs fairly fine.
Now in a large bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cinnamon, and butter.
Next with the back of the measuring cup or you fingers gently press the crust into the pie pan and bake at 375F degrees for 7 min.
Now mix together sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, and key lime juice. Pour filling in to pie crust and chill in fridge for 10 min.
In a smaller bowl mix together sour cream, key lime juice, and sugar.
Pour and spread the second mixture over the first mixture and bake at 350F for 30 min. Then let cool and freeze until rock hard. (This is very important.)
Cut small slits every 2-3 inches and insert the Popsicle sticks in them. Place back in the freezer.
Cut the pie into slices and spoon melted chocolate on then then flip over and repeat. Make sure the chocolate goes over the sides and covers to whole thing, let chocolate harden.
