Key Lime Pie Truffles

Is there anything better than poppable pie?

I’m gonna have to say no to that.

I mean, unless you find a genie in a bottle who will grant you infinity wishes…but I heard that wish is against the genie rulebook…

So…we’ll have to stick with poppable pie.


Let me break this down for you…I made Key lime Pie Truffles…And they’re basically the easiest treats ever.

Key Lime Pie Truffles | Cookies and Cups

I started with a bag of white chocolate chips, and the added one can of frosting.

I actually used the Duncan Hines Key Lime Frosting Creations Flavor Packet and added to their base frosting…

Just stir in the flavor packet into the plain frosting and it’s instantly Key Lime Pie Frosting!

I added the zest of one lime to the mix to punch up the lime flavor…

I really love those little flavor packs! I was a little wary at first but I used the cotton candy in my buttercream frosting on a birthday cake and I was SOLD. These are freaking genius.
What a great idea!!


I have recently discovered how easy truffles are to make and I’ve become kind of obsessed. These look amazing. Thanks for the recipe!

Oh my… I want to be your neighbour.

These look DE-LIGHT-FUL!!! Key Lime pie is one of my favourites… so I can just imagine what these taste like!

Happy Friday!


Hi! I am new to your blog. And after exploring for the past hour, I’ve come to a conclusion… I think… I LOVE You! You are my blog twin and we should go live in happy chocolate s’mores pie heaven together forever!

Needless to say, I’ll be around quite frequently, enjoying every visual calorie along the way!


You’re brilliant! What a perfect way to enjoy pie without going to the effort of making one.

Alison @ Ingredients, Inc.

absolutely genius!

Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes

I’ve made key lime pie truffles before!! Love them!

Here’s the link if you’re interested 🙂

I have been wondering if the flavor packets would work with homemade buttercream — so glad to know that they will. Now maybe I will try some! Thanks for sharing.


Well I really messed up the Buckeye Brownie cookies but I think I can handle these — maybe. The cookies ended up more like brownies because I put them in a muffin tin and filled them pretty full, but you could still eat them.. Chocolate & peanut butter, how bad can they be???

Key Lime is my daughter-in-laws favorite so I will give them a try, also! (I wonder how badly I’ll mess these up) LOL


I go to a Hospice monthly Pot Luck and this is what I’ll be taking next month!


LOVVVVVVAH WHITE CHOCOLATE and LOVVVVVAH Key lime! I’m gonna have my 9year make these for his momma! Thanks for sharing!

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

So it’s a popable pie made out of frosting. Does it get any better?

Miriam @ Overtime Cook

Absolutely brilliant! This looks amazing- I love truffles, and this is a great twist!

Mimi @ Culinary Couture

These are GENIUS!

Gloria @ Simply Gloria

Poppable pie…I’m all about it!

luv what you do

I’ve made fudge with frosting and white chocolate before but never truffles. Awesome idea!

Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen

poppable pie sounds just about right to me!


These make me want to fly off to Key West!! Wouldn’t that be nice! They really look awesome!


Poppable pie! Love it!


These are dangerous! I don’t know that I’d be able to stop popping in these my mouth! Key lime is my favorite pie!!!

Shiloh Barkley

Love this!


If the Duncan Hines Lime flavor packet is NOT available, what can you substitute to obtain a similar flavor for the Key Lime Truffles?


Is it possible to substitute something else in place of the Duncan Hines Key Lime packets if they’re not available in my area? Thanks.


Sounds soooo yummy! I’ll have to figure out a way of making these without the store-bought frosting because I can’t find it here… Anyways, love the idea of poppable pie!!!


Sooo, key lime is my favorite flavor ever. Plus white chocolate and grahams and I’m in heaven! I’ve got to make these! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Sue {munchkin munchies}

You are so creative! These look highly addictive:)

Darla | Bakingdom

These are so much fun!! Love the bit of pie, without crazy amounts of work!


I made these today for a “My Favorite Things Party” and they are delicious! I found key lime frosting at the store and added the lime zest. My 7 year old loves them and its hard to keep her away from them.

I am looking for desserts to make for my dessert reception. Could these be made ahead and frozen??


Hi Shelly,
Just made these for my daughters wedding reception but since the frosting packets are no longer available in our area, I substituted an unsweetened pkt of lemon lime Koolaid added to the frosting…..seemed to work perfectly! They flew off the dessert table in no time! I did the same thing with lemon Koolaid and rolled them in vanilla wafer crumbs. Next time, I’d like to figure out something meringue-y to dip the lemon ones in. Anyway, huge hit….Thanks!

I made these for my daughter’s bridal shower. Everyone was amazed, they were the favorite food at the shower. I couldn’t find the flavor packets, so I just used a can of key lime frosting, & the lime zest. I let the dough get really cold in the fridge, but it scooped out easy with a spoon. I wore disposable kitchen gloves to roll the balls out & they came out uniform. Very easy, & very delicious! I think I’ll try the recipe with other flavored frosting. Thanks so much!
