Happy Memorial Day, everyone!  I hope that you enjoyed a day off from work with family and friends in this beautiful summer day.  However, I hope that you also took a moment to remember the great sacrifice that so many brave men and women have made so that we might enjoy freedom in this great nation.

I don’t know about you, but lately I have had a SERIOUS craving for popsicles.  There is a “gourmet popsicle” craze sweeping the nation, and I am loving it.  Until a couple weeks ago, I was terribly envious of people posting homemade delicious looking popsicles.  Well, I have to be envious no more!  I ordered a popsicle mold off of Amazon, and I love it!  I have been pinning popsicle recipes like crazy on pinterest.  This key lime pie is the first one I’ve tried, and it was amazing!

I did struggle with getting the popsicles out of the mold.  I googled it, and everyone says that you’re supposed to set the container in some hot water for a few seconds, and then they should slip right out.  Well, it took more than a few seconds, and when they finally did slip out, the top halves were a bit melted.  But at least for this particular recipe, the graham cracker crumbs covered up the ugly parts :-).

Serves: 8

Ingredients:
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup half & half
3/4 cup lime juice
2-3 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
pinch of fine sea salt
4-6 graham crackers, crushed
Directions:
Combine all ingredients except graham crackers in a bowl and whisk together until they are thoroughly combined.
Divide amongst your popsicle molds and freeze until solid, at least 5 hours. Add your popsicle sticks at the correct time for your molds.
Use a blender or food processor to crush the graham crackers into fine crumbs.
When ready to serve, let the pops sit out at room temperature for a minute to let the outside just start to soften and get “tacky”. Press each side of the popsicles in the cracker crumbs and enjoy!
