INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup M&M’s Key Lime Pie, divided

1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

4 tsp granulated sugar

2 tbsp butter, melted

1/2 can (14 oz can) sweetened condensed milk

2 egg yolks

1/4 cup lime juice

2 tbsp lime zest, divided

1/2 cup 35% heavy cream

2 tbsp icing sugar

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Chop half of the M&M’s Key Lime Pie; set aside. Line 12 mini muffin cups with foil liners. Spray liners with cooking spray; set aside.

2. Toss together graham crumbs and sugar; mix in melted butter until well combined. Divide mixture evenly among muffin cups, pressing into bottom of cups. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until toasted and lightly golden. Let cool completely.

3. Whisk together sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks until smooth and blended. Whisk in lime juice and 1/2 tbsp lime zest. Fold in chopped M&M’s Key Lime Pie. Spoon mixture evenly into mini muffin cups.

4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Let cool completely on rack. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours.

5. Just before serving, whip cream with icing sugar until firm peaks start to form. Stir in 1/2 tbsp lime zest. Transfer to piping bag fitted with star tip.

6. Remove bites from muffin cups; remove foil liners. Pipe whipped cream over top. Garnish with remaining M&M’s Key Lime Pie and sprinkle of remaining lime zest.

 

Tip: Alternatively, swap cream cheese frosting for whipped cream if preferred.
