Key Lime Cheesecake Truffles

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.

  1. Oh my these look delicious! Such a great idea to use the cookie and cream cheese as a truffle filling. Can’t get golden oreos here in London but will be experimenting with others. Gorgeous photos too!

          1. I am thrilled turned out well for you! I like to hear when people have success with my recipes. Thanks for the feedback. 🙂

    1. Hi Jana! I found online that 3 oz of crushed graham crackers equals 84 grams. So I guess 14 oz would be about 392 grams. Now, I’m not used to measuring in grams so I hope that seems correct. When I get home from work this evening I can definitely measure it to be sure. If you can wait until then, I’ll post my results here in the comments for you. 🙂 I hope that helps!

  2. Hi! This sounds wonderful, but I had a few question:

    Do you use all the oreos from the 14oz package? With the cream filling?

    Thanks for your help!

    Jay
