Key Lime Pie Dip

That’s right, my Key Lime Pie Dip takes everything you love about the classic dessert and turns it into a cool and refreshing layered dip. A slice of pie is rather boring, but all the great flavors of that pie in a dip is much more fun. Plus, you can dunk just about anything in there, and it will be divine. I used the Pillsbury Key Lime Cookies.

Best of all, this is much easier to whip up than an actual pie, and it is perfect for serving up at a party. It’s no-bake, and the ingredient list is relatively short. It couldn’t be any more perfect for springtime.

Ingredients

1 pkg
jell-o lime gelatin mix
1 pkg
jell-o instant vanilla pudding mix (not cook and serve)

1
8-oz. can sweetened condensed milk, chilled
3 c

1/4 c

1/2 c
graham cracker crumbs

Step-By-Step

1A Few Tips Before You Get Cooking:
Temperature plays an important role in this recipe. The Jell-O mix needs to be boiled then cooled.
2The pudding needs to be made with the cooled Jell-O mixture and chilled sweetened condensed milk.

Remember to chill the sweetened condensed milk ahead of time!
3The cream needs to be ultra-chilled to be whipped.
4You’ll want to finish this within the first day or two because whipped cream does start to separate.
5Making the Dip:
Place 1/2 cup of the water in the freezer.
6Bring the remaining 1/2 cup of the water to boil in a small saucepan and whisk in lime Jell-O mix until completely dissolved.
7Remove from heat and let come to room temperature.
8Transfer to the freezer for a few minutes just until cool. Do NOT let it solidify.
9In a large mixing bowl, whisk together Jell-O mixture, chilled water, chilled sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla pudding mix until well-combined and thickened, about two minutes.
10Transfer to the fridge until completely set, about 10 minutes.
11In a separate bowl, beat cream on high until stiff peaks form.
12Divide in half and fold one half into the lime pudding until evenly combined.
13Whisk powdered sugar into the remaining half of whipped cream.
14In a large glass bowl or trifle dish, layer lime mousse, graham crackers, and whipped cream until you run out.
15Dip whatever you’d like in it, or eat it with a spoon.
16Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
17For dippers, try graham crackers, sugar cookies, shortbread, Teddy Grahams, and more.
