Key Lime Truffles
No chocolate, but packed with the bright lime and graham cracker flavour from the classic treat! A touch of tangy cream cheese adds just the right about of taste and texture. Make a double (or triple!) batch and keep them in the freezer to prolong their life – not that they’ll hang around long!
