I made a lemon version of this and it was great. My Mom loves key lime so I thought I would give that a try. This was so good people thought I bought it pre-made.
10 ounces cream cheese
zest of 4 key limes
6 teaspoons fresh key lime juice
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
dash of vanilla extract
3 graham crackers, crushed
graham crackers/fruit for serving
Stir cream cheese and sugar together in a medium bowl until well blended. Add key lime zest, juice and vanilla extract and combine until smooth.
Form the key lime and cheese mixture into a round ball on plastic wrap and wrap up. This cheese mixture is soft, so making a perfect ball shape may not be possible until the mixture in completely chilled. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
Place crushed graham crackers on a plate. Form cheese ball again. Roll cheese ball in graham crackers until well coated. Refrigerate until ready to use.
