Ingredients

  • 1

    box yellow cake mix

  • 1/2

    tbsp. grated lime zest

  • 1/3

    cup key lime juice

  • 3/4

    cup half and half

  • 2

    eggs

Directions

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.
