Raw Key Lime Pie Bites

I got my hands on a bunch of limes, and all I could think to make with them is key lime pie.  It sounded sooo good to me because I love key lime pie any time of the year.  Especially the very tart kind.  It has to be the perfect balance of tart and sweet, with real organic limes, plenty of zest to create that lovely aroma.  I was feeling a little lazy though so instead of a pie, I ended up making key lime pie bites.

Just a dusting of raw "graham cracker" crumbs on the bottom, just enough to set the luscious filling on top of since the filling is my favorite part anyhow.  This was kind of like a cross between fudge and key lime pie, and they were rich, hence the bites. But see I figure with bites you can have more of them, so it is always a win!

They tasted just like key lime pie!  The perfect balance of tart and sweet, a little graham cracker crunch for good measure and melt in your mouth goodness!  Bring these to a party and everyone will be your friend.  I think these might be nice to serve as part of an Easter brunch spread, because everyone wants a little of everything, and a bite is perfect!
