Mini Key Lime Trifles

 

 

 

 

 

We had a lovely Easter and the best part was having Melissa, Megan and her boyfriend Adam here the whole weekend. We were able to spend a lot of time together; talking, laughing and catching up on life. There was a point in time, where I was finishing up the meal preparation in the kitchen and everyone else was sitting in the room next door, laughing at something and it just made me so happy to be cooking for my family and know we were about to sit down to lunch together. The empty nest life is fine, most of the time, but I do love when they come home.

These Mini Key Lime Trifles, that we enjoyed for dessert were so easy to make and the perfect light ending to a spring inspired meal.

 

Mini Key Lime Trifles


1 package cream cheese, softened (8 ounce)

1/3 cup sugar (I used Truvia equivilent)

1 container cool whip, thawed (8 ounce)

3 tablespoons key lime juice

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup butter, melted

Whipped topping


With a hand mixer, combine cream cheese, key lime juice and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Mix in cool whip. Stir together graham crackers and melted butter. Place a heaping tablespoon of graham cracker mixture in bottom of small dish. Top with a generous amount of cream cheese mixture (about 2 T) then sprinkle more graham cracker mixture on top. Place in refrigerator at least 3 hours to chill. When ready to serve, top with whipped topping. Serves 8.
