Step 1

Mix together cake mix, lime zest, key lime juice, half and half and eggs.

Batter will be thicker. Pour batter into a greased 9×13 baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 28-32 minutes, until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

Crumble cake into small, even pieces, placing crumbs in a large bowl.

Add the following ingredients:

¼ cup Lime Butter Cream Frosting (recipe below)
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp. grated lime zest

With the back of a spoon, mix together cake crumbles with ingredients until a thick “dough” consistency forms, making it easy to shape into a cake bite.

Shape cake bites, evenly sized and cool for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator, or 20 minutes in the freezer. Dip into white melting chocolate. Top with crushed graham crackers.

Lime Butter Cream Frosting (makes approx. 3 cups of frosting)

8 tbsp. (1 stick) butter, room temperature
3 ¾ cups powdered sugar, sifted
3-4 tbsp. milk or cream
2 tsp. lime extract or lime juice
2 tbsp. lime zest

Place the butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat until light and fluffy, about 30 seconds. Stop the mixer before adding the sugar or you will have a large mess to clean up.

Add the sugar, 3 tablespoons milk (cream) and lime extract or juice and lime zest. Beat frosting starting on slow increasing your speed until frosting is nice and creamy. Add up to 1 or more tablespoons of milk (cream) if frosting to too thick.
