These Key Lime Pie Frosting Shots are creamy, tart, and perfect. They taste just like Key Lime Pie in spreadable form.
Did you know that frosting shots are a thing?
And by frosting shots, I don’t mean that they are like Jell-O shots or whiskey shots. Geez, you lush.
Although…maybe they COULD be a thing? Drinkable frosting with alcohol in it?
No. NO. Let’s not. We really shouldn’t.
(email me about it later and we’ll mull over ideas privately)
I have seen little cups of “frosting shots” in bakeries across the land. So obviously…people are buying them. People are paying a dollar for a teensy cup of frosting that they eat with a spoon.
PEOPLE!! Do you KNOW how EASY it is to make frosting?? You, friends, are being ripped off. And I’m not okay with it.
Friends don’t let friends get ripped off. It’s not cool.
Frosting is one of those things that is REALLY hard to mess up. Too thin? Add more sugar. Too thick? Add a bit of milk or water. No baking is required, so you don’t run into any of those weird sciencey issues you get with cakes and cookies.
Science is truly my LEAST favorite part about baking. That and dirty dishes. Do you agree? Science needs to get out of my kitchen. And take all the dirty dishes with it.
This frosting is particularly magical. It’s creamy, it’s tart, it’s Key Lime Pie in spreadable form. Feel free to smear it on cake or pile it on cupcakes, but trust me when I say that it’s best when enjoyed in it’s pure state.
Key Lime Pie Frosting Shots. You are welcome, sirs and madams.
Butter and cream cheese really shine in a recipe like this where there’s no baking or huge number of ingredients involved. I used Challenge Butter and Cream Cheese — I am a brand ambassador and the texture and flavor truly cannot be beat!
I always have difficulty finding key lime juice at my grocery store, but you can order it here on Amazon. It’s great to have on hand!
- 4 Tablespoons Challenge Brand Salted Butter, slightly softened
- 4 oz Challenge Brand Cream Cheese, slightly softened
- 1/8 cup key lime juice
- 2 1/3 cups powdered sugar
- 2 graham cracker sheets, crushed into crumbs
- In the bowl of your mixer, combine butter and cream cheese. Beat on medium low until smooth. Add key lime juice and beat on medium low until smooth. With the mixer on low, slowly add powdered sugar, beating until just barely mixed in. Increase speed to high and beat for one minute, until frosting is light and fluffy.
- Spoon or pipe (using a jumbo piping tip) frosting into small plastic cups and top with graham cracker crumbs.
These would be great on a Spring or Summer dessert table. Enjoy and have a fabulous day!
