I’ve never been a big fan of sour things. I could never eat Sour Patch Kids. Other sour candies would give me the worst pucker mouth, for sure.
So, when it came to key limes, I just steered clear of them. I wasn’t interested in eating something sour. Until a few months ago when I tried a bite of Key Lime Pie from Cafe Rio. That changed everything. Since then I have been dreaming of what I could do with Key Limes. I’ve also been dreaming of actually being able to find them. Remember I live in a tiny town, and the store doesn’t usually carry foods that are non-staples.
However, I got some Key Limes in one of my Bountiful Basket orders last weekend! Yay! So, I decided to make some Key Lime Cheesecake Truffles. And I’m glad I did.
I used Golden Oreos and cream cheese as the base, and then added key lime juice and zest. Easy peasy.
After forming the balls and giving them a quick rest in the freezer, I dipped them in white candy melts and sprinkled some more key lime zest on the top.
