Key Lime Pie Pops

Recipe

1 Frozen Key Lime Pie - I used Edward's

Dark chocolate - I used 1 bag Hersheys dark baking chips

2 1/2 T Crisco shortening

Popsicle sticks

Melt 1 bag of chips and about 2 1/2 tablespoons shortening in a double boiler over boiling water. Don't substitute butter, and don't let water get into the chocolate. Stir until smooth. I have done this in a microwave, but the double boiler works best.

Keeping pie very frozen, take out and cut into 12 pieces. (These seem small but it is very rich and this gives a good shell/pie ratio that helps keep it together. I used a store brand with a really dense crust - a beautiful homemade or bakery pie would likely fall apart.)

Cut a small slot in the crust and insert the popsicle stick. If you aren't working quickly, put back in freezer.

Hold the popsicle over the double boiler and use a ladle to coat it. Be sure and get chocolate around the opening where the stick is inserted so it holds together.

Place on a baking sheet with a silicone mat, baking paper, etc. and refreeze! Try to forget about them until your company comes.

Makes 12 pops!
