Introduction: Chocolate Dipped Key Lime Pie Slices

I First had a chocolate dipped key lime when I was on a cruise on my honeymoon and we stopped in Key West.  My wife and I loved they way it tasted, so I will share the idea with everybody else as well in hopes that you will like it to.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You can use these two instructables and a few other things to get everything you will need for the chocolate dipped Key lime pie.

My key lime pie recipe or another key lime pie recipe:  https://www.instructables.com/id/Key-Lime-Pie-2/
and scoochmaroo' s Homemade Magic Shell Recipe https://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Magic-Shell-Recipe/
  • Some wax paper, parchment paper, or a silpat baking mat
  • Some Popsicle sticks

Step 2: Preparing the Slices

You can make the slices as big or as small as you want.  I am just going with a pie sliced into 12 pieces. 
  1. Place the slices (slightly separated) on a plate or on a pan lined with either wax paper, parchment paper, or a silpat baking mat.
  2. Insert the popsicle sticks through the crust and about 2 inches into the filling. (If the crust starts to crack, pierce it first with a knife before inserting the sticks.)
  3. Place the slices into the freezer untill it is frozen solid

Step 3: Dipping the Slices

The best thing to use to dip the slices in is going to be a taller container that is kind of narrow, such as a large yogurt container or a larger Chinese takeout container that soup may have come in.  Fill it with the homemade magic shell (I made a triple recipe) and just dip the slices in the mix.  The nice thing about the magic shell is that you can make the shell as thick or as thin as you want, and since it is magic shell it will just be about a minute or two until it is ready to eat.

Enjoy your tasty treat and try some different flavor combinations if you want.
