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.

How to Make Key Lime Pie Truffles

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

I actually used the Duncan Hines Key Lime Frosting Creations Flavor Packet and added to their base frosting…
I’ve used their Frosting Creations before here and here…I generally add them to my own buttercream recipe which works just as well, but this time I was in a time pinch and had their easy starter can on-hand.

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

Then grab yourself a bag of white chocolate chips…

Melt them in the microwave or over a double boiler…

Just stir your frosting into the melted white chips.

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

Spread that into a shallow pan, and pop it in the fridge to chill for about 15-20 minutes.  Just enough to make it less sticky.

Meanwhile, crush up some graham crackers…

And when the lime filling is chilled, form mixture into truffle sized balls and roll in the graham cracker mixture…

And honestly that’s it!

Love these little treats. They are fancy enough to serve to guests, or give as gifts, but simple enough for a fun snack!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

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!

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 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.

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!!!

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.

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