Key Lime Cups

So, I was just sitting around the other day, trying to think of something to do with these green melt away chocolates that I've had. Reason is because I've been eating them all the time now, but it would taste better that have them made into something rather than just eating them by themselves. So, while I was sitting around... It came to me.

Well, it came to me after seeing a Reeces that Chris was eating. Then I just though, "Cups.. Green Cups.. Lime.. Key Lime Cups!" So then I came up with the idea to make Key Lime Cups. They're very simple; A lot like my Peanut Butter Cups, except, not Peanut Butter. The inside is just like a Key Lime Pie filling, but now, put into a chocolate cups. These are well loved, especially with lime fanatics!


1 1/2 cups green chocolate melts
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup bottled or fresh key lime juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

1. Set 2 dozen mini muffins wrappers on a baking sheet. Melt half of the chocolate, using a microwave-safe bowl and cooking it in short 30 second intervals until smooth.

2. Using a spoon, pour a little bit of chocolate in each muffin wrapper and using a small clean brush to paint the chocolate up the sides of each wrapper. Chill candy for 10 minutes.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together condensed milk, key lime juice, vanilla and eggs . When mixture has come together.

4. Once candy has chilled, spoon generous amounts of key lime mixture into each candy cup. Chill for another 10 minutes.

5. Melt the rest of the chocolate and fill each muffin cup once they have chilled. Chill until set (I would recommend longer than this. Like around a few hours. It taste much better after sitting in the fridge for awhile).

Do you cook the filling mixture, or does it just thicken as it chills?
