How To Make A Frozen Chocolate Covered Key Lime Pie Pop
About a year ago, my family took a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. My husband had a work trip there and we decided to tag along. We spent the days at the beach and the evenings finding yummy food to eat! I had some of the best Mexican food there and some of the tastiest gelato. We took a day and drove out to the Florida Keys and enjoyed a bit of time on Key West. We only had a few hours there and didn’t get to explore nearly as much as I wished but we enjoyed it. Well when my sister spent some time in the Keys a month or so ago and sent me a picture of a frozen chocolate covered key lime pie pop, I realized that I needed to make it back asap because I did not eat nearly enough key lime goodness while I was there!
As soon as she sent me the picture, I had lots of follow up questions for her. She was nice enough to answer them all. And then I just couldn’t get the idea of a frozen chocolate covered key lime pie pop out of my head no matter how hard I tried! I already have an absolutely to-die-for Key Lime Pie recipe that is also really easy to make. So I was dying to try it, frozen and dipped in chocolate! Thank you to my sister for giving me this inspiration!

Yes, thats more Key Lime Pie than anyone could ever consume in a lifetime! So if deep-fried pie, pie on a stick, and pie in a glass dont sound to your taste, theres likely to be at least one recipe to your liking in here.

How To Make Chocolate Dipped Key Lime Pie
So you’ve baked your key lime pie. It’s been chilling in the fridge and is ready to be sliced. Before you start slicing, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. This way you can evenly space out the slices while they freeze. And, you can return them right to the cookie sheet once they’ve been dipped.
Slice the pie like you normally would. Place the slices on the cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 4 to 6 hours or up to overnight. When you’re ready to dip the slices, take then out of the freezer and stick a popsicle stick through the crust side of the slice and return the slices back to the freezer for 30 minutes.
Prepare the chocolate: For the recipe I highly recommend dark chocolate it compliments the tart of the key lime pie filling so well but you can use whatever you have. I think milk chocolate would be great with this too. Melt the chocolate in a glass, microwave safe bowl until it is silky smooth but before not to over do it – chocolate can burn easily. Once the chocolate is completely melted it’s time to dip!
Chocolate Dipped Frozen Key Lime Pies

Many years ago , Bryan and I liked to watch a Food Network show, Road Tasted. It doesnt exist any more. Back then, it was hosted by Jamie and Bobby Deen. They went around the country and tried many well-known food. The best part was that all of those food can be shipped to your home. I was crazy enough and ordered some kringles and deep dish pizzas. Both were fantastic and it was well worth it!
When the Deen brothers were in Key West, Florida, they went to Blond Giraffe for chocolate dipped frozen key lime pie on a stick. The pies looked absolutely delicious, especially with the dripping chocolate. I was totally drooling while watching. Unfortunately, the shipping cost was pricey. I didnt order any, but I swear that I would hunt down these pies when I visit Key West. Sadly, I still havent been to Florida to this day. One day

Key Lime Pie With Meringue
I got my first taste of Key Lime Pie while having breakfast at Blue Heaven. This restaurant is an institution in Key West over the course of its history the property has hosted cock fights, gambling, and even Friday night boxing matches refereed by the one and only, Ernest Hemingway. How could I say no to that?
Even though I went to Blue Heaven for breakfast , I still saved a little bit of room for pie because thats what you do when youre in the Key Lime Pie capital.
When my slice of pie arrived at the table, I couldnt believe the height of the meringue it was practically the size of my face! The meringue was a nice golden brown on the outside, and white and fluffy once you cut into it. The pie had the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness, and because Lemon Meringue Pie is my favourite, the similarities between the two immediately won me over.

Frozones Key Lime Pie Pop
Inspired by Disneys new treat at Hollywood Studios Neighborhood Bakery, I recreated a summer time treat with a sweet twist! They turned out INCREDIBLE! *pun intended*
We loved the dance of flavors from the tart Key Lime and sweet white chocolate. Its so refreshing! It would be perfect for a Summer time snack.
Its pretty easy to make too! Dont forget one thing, you are incredible and all of your friends will think so too when you show up with these Disney inspired treats!
First, I made the graham cracker crust and let it cool while I made the key lime filling. Then, when it was done baking and chilled, I cut it into eighths, added some popsicle sticks and dipped them into chocolate.
Thanks Susan from Just a Sunshine State of Mind for the photo of the original pie on a stick and for planting the idea in my head.
Chocolate Dipped Key Lime Pie Pops
August 3, 2019 By Ashley
Can we just talk about how its August already?! Like, where did summer go? It went by in a blur. Its hard to believe that in just a couple short weeks one of my babies will be starting high school and the other will be starting kindergarten. We may be close to fall and heading back to school, but I am still baking up a storm with all the summer produce. My method for picking the best fruit for my next baking project is usually choosing what fruit I can smell when I first walk into the farmers market. Lately its been strawberries and peaches. ALL the peaches as you will see in my next post. Hint, hint, wink, wink.
But being a citrus lover as I am, I stopped short in my tracks earlier this week when I saw the bags and bags of tiny little key limes, and recalled a yummy treat I had while we were recently vacationing in Sarasota, Florida. While hanging out in a local ice cream shop, I noticed that one of their specialties was chocolate dipped key lime pie. Me being somewhat burned out on ice cream , I decided to try it and found that I very much enjoyed it. So I picked up a few bags of those little key limes and created something similar at home these chocolate dipped key lime pie pops.
Seriously guys, so, so good. I hope you enjoy these chocolate covered key lime pops as much as I do.

Key Lime Pie: The Best Dessert In The Florida Keys
Confession time: during my recent visit to the Florida Keys I ate Key Lime Pie for breakfast, lunch and dinner every single day. Id like to tell you that this was strictly for research purposes as I embarked on a quest to find the best Key Lime Pie in the Keys, but lets be honest, I just like to eat pie and when its listed on every single menu, it only makes it that much easier for me to indulge in a little sweet somethin somethin.
