MINI KEY LIME MOUSSE CUPS


Creamy, light, sweet and tart all rolled into one!!! You know how I love my key lime pie!! I've told you all before how my Mom's Key Lime Pie Recipe is the BEST!! I have these mini dessert glasses that sometimes I'm just dying to use as this lady loves her some individual mini desserts. Thus, Key Lime Mousse for these darling cups was born. Plus that way I don't over indulge...well. unless I eat 3, lol!!
  Yum
This dessert is so refreshing, just the right amount and will make you smile!!




What you'll need
