Frozen Key Lime Pie on a Stick

Frozen Key Lime Pie on a Stick Hello hello hello! Happy Thursday, my lovelies. I am SO excited to share with you today’s recipe, so I’m going to keep the chit-chat short and get right on into it.

Frozen Key Lime Pie ON A STICK. Oh, and it’s covered in chocolate. Because you know —> chocolate on ALL of the things, please. Throwing a dash of flaky sea salt on the wet chocolate is highly encouraged. Extra graham cracker crumbs too! Frozen Key Lime Pie on a Stick This recipe is from Christina Lane’s new cookbook: Dessert For Two: Small Batch Cookies, Brownies, Pies, and Cakes. This beautiful book is a true gem. As I flipped through the gorgeous glossy pages I mentally bookmarked recipe after recipe… then I saw this —> a recipe for frozen key lime pie on a stick. I ran to the grocery store (no really, I ran there… it’s like 6 blocks away and this girl has been inhaling sugar like it’s mah job… oh wait, it is!), swiped up all of the limes they had in stock, and busted a move baking the crust and whipping the filling. What can I say? I was born in Key West and I take my Key lime desserts very seriously.

Frozen Key Lime Pie on a Stick This recipe is refreshingly simple in ingredients and steps, BUT! The pie has to freeze, so you need to plan ahead when making this. My dreamy pops took about 24 hours to firm up, and after I cut them, I let them freeze for another hour before dipping them in the chocolate. You can feel these steps out on your own since your freezer may run a little colder than mine. Just be sure the pie is really set before you try dipping it in the chocolate, ok?

Creamy Key Lime Pie Covered in Chocolate - and on a stick! This is such a fun and refreshing treat!


  • For the Pie Crust:
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (4 whole graham crackers crushed!)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • For the Lime Curd Filling:
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup key lime juice (fresh or bottled)
  • For the Chocolate Topping:
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil (or coconut oil, which I used with great results!)


  1. To make the Crust:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Lightly grease (just a spritz of non-stick spray!) a 6" pie pan; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine the cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter; stir until evenly combined. Press the crumb mixture into the prepared pie pan, taking care to pack it in tightly and press it up the sides of the pan. Place the pie pan on a baking sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside and allow crust to cool.
  4. To make the Lime Curd Filling:
  5. In the body of a standmixer or in a medium-sized bowl using an electric handheld mixer, beat the egg yolks and condensed milk until light and creamy; about 3 minutes. Next add in the lime zest and key lime juice; beat until completely combined. Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust and place in the freezer for 24 hours.
  6. When ready to serve, dip a very sharp knife into hot water, then slice the pie into 4 pieces. Use a small sharp knife to make a slit in the back of the pie crust, then slide a wooden popsicle stick in the end of each crust. Don't worry if a little bit of the crust crumbles here; it only natural! Place the pops back in the freezer for 1 hour.
  7. For the Chocolate Ganache:
  8. Melt the chocolate and oil in the top of a double boiler over medium-high speed. Do not let the water boil. Stir the chocolate constantly. Remove from heat when almost all of the chocolate has melted. Continue to whisk mixture off the heat until completely smooth. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  9. To cover the pie in chocolate, hold the stick by the end and place the pie pop upside down in the chocolate (dipping the creamy part first). Flip it quickly and use a spoon to cover the crust in chocolate. Place the pie pops back in the freezer for a few minutes, just until the chocolate sets, then serve!
  10. Alternately, you can skip dipping the pops into the chocolate and use a spoon to pour the chocolate over top and around.

    I love Christina’s blog and follow it regularly. Everything she makes is like ermagawd!! I have heard about these super famous key lime pies on a stick and want to visit Key West just to eat them! I’d try to make this recipe first if I won the book!

  2. Hannah Nicole

    I would start with her mini bread puddings. They looked so tasty and bread pudding is one of my favorites when I’m out to eat. Would love to learn to make my own at home.

  3. Deborah Balint

    I’m so taken by your gorgeous photos of the key lime pies on a stick that I think I’d have to make this first! Love Christina and this book has been on my wish list…I’m ready to dive in and start making things from it as soon as I get it.

  4. Sheila Slatter

    I’ll be dreaming of these luscious key lime pops tonight. Can’t wait till summer to sit on the porch savoring these delights.

  5. Emily

    What a great blog (both of ya!)…I never make cupcakes because the last thing we need a dozen of in our house is sweet treats but I’d get down with making cupcakes by the 2’s-way safer that way :) Waiting for at least 50 degree weather to make these pops!

  6. Nancy Keely

    Oh, I almost forgot ….. chocolate eclairs, mason jar lid tarts (yummy white chocolate raspberry), pumpkin cheesecake and I could go on and on! I’m throwing the scale out the door!

  7. Brianna Squire

    I absolutely, positively would make these key lime pie pops first!!! I’ve been craving key lime pie for weeks and since St. Patrick’s day is coming up…you know what I’m having that night! Going to go buy limes now; Tuesday is too far away.

  8. Christa

    You had me @ Key Lime Pie… But next will be Scotcheroos for 2!!!! Chocolate peanut buttery goodness!!!

  9. Jenny

    Raspberry Rose Sundaes :)

    By the way – I cannot wait to make these key lime pops. They look out of this world delicious!

  10. chickie brewer

    I would like the honey shortbread… It looks perfect to have with my coffee! BTW That key lime also looks so good but I’m sorry say I have never tried Key Lime pie

  11. Kimberly H

    It’s a toss up between the Key Lime Pie (just plain without the chocolate), the Carrot Cake, and the Pineapple Upside Down Cake!

  12. CJ Catanese

    I feel like this book was made for me! I am constantly searching for desserts that I can make without feeling like I am wasting the extras or trying to find someone to feed them too. And Key Lime Pie is a small passion of mine so I would definitely start with that!

  13. krystal

    I love the idea of desserts for two! Since it’s just me and my husband, my need to bake sometimes means we are eating one thing over and over or throwing it at anyone who walks by just to get it out of the house. I’d make this first – my husband LOVES key lime pie.

  14. Christine

    How did I not hear of this before! This is a great idea. I think I will try the chocolate cookie with ritz crackers but this key lime pie in chocolate is a must!

  15. Shana

    MINI BREAD PUDDINGS OMG!! But also Key Lime Pie pops…man these look good. Trying out asap. Thanks for posting, I had never heard of Dessert for Two prior to this!

  16. janet in nc

    agree! still have 2 weeks ’til spring break to work this off, right? first to make the frozen key lime pie pops then, ritz dipped chocolate hearts sound amazeballs!

  17. Angela

    I’m going to for sure make these for my friends and I. Key Lime pops, heck yes!

    As for Dessert for Two, a chocolate chip cookie cake. always.

  18. Stormy

    Two-bite Coconut Cream Pies! And then these Key Lime Pie sticks for my dad (Key Lime is his favorite). Plus, being diabetic means there’s less to tempt! Thanks for introducing the meals for two, and for the delicious photos!

  19. Robin

    Drooling as I read this recipe. Need to make some room in my freezer, but this is first on the list to make. Yum!

  20. Brandi B

    My first go would be at carrot cake; however, these frozen key lime pie pops would be right up after as my dude LOVES key lime pie! It’s already so hot here in Arizona, these treats would be perfect.

    1. bakerbynature Post author

      These pops are perfect for hot days! We’re still stuck with a chilly Spring… but I know once the warm temps head this way I’ll be making these again and again :)

  21. jeane mcclure

    Mouth is drooling, for the Key Lime Pie Chocoate dip on a stick. would LOVE to have this book and little pan to make these. PLEASE drool drool

  22. Annette

    I’ve never had rhubarb, but have heard wonderful things about it. So, the first dessert I’d like to make is her, “RHUBARB CRISP.”

  23. Samuel Torres

    I just found your blog and I love it! I think I would make big salty chocolate chip cookies with caramel :) after a delicious meal being able to sit back and have a glass of cold milk to go along with the cookies… Yum!!

  24. Kathy Crispino

    I think my first recipe to try would be the salted caramel macarons….mmmm mmmm
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this book…

  25. Kristi Yun

    i would definitely start with the apple turnovers! Even though my three-year-old wouldn’t touch it, my husband’s favorite dessert or anything with apple! And I love anything buttery, flaky, and fruity! Will be trying that recipe soon!
