Key Lime Cheese Ball {Just like Tastefully Simple’s}

My sister brought a delicious Tastefully Simple Key Lime Cheeseball to my house for our Mother’s Day celebration.

It was so delish. Did I mention that already? Okay then.

Key Lime cheese ball served with graham cracker “pretzels” (Pretzels are a Tastefully Simple Product)

Of course, we really don’t want to have to buy the mix if you can do it yourself.     What self-respecting Yankee would?

So, tonight I humbly submit to you, this copycat recipe. :)


Key Lime Cheeseball

1 box (7.5 oz) Dr. Oetker Key Lime Pie Filling Dessert Mix (got mine at the grocery store, but many of you have asked to see exactly what it looked like, hence the Amazon link. ;))

2 bricks softened cream cheese

1/2 stick butter

1 cup powdered sugar

Mix until blended will. Pop in the fridge until firm. Roll into crushed graham crackers to form a ball.

Serve with Nilla Wafers or Graham Crackers.

    It sounds WONDERFUL! I can’t wait to make it. I loved the tastefully simple version so I’m excited to have this at the next family gathering.

    Can’t wait to try this! I had purchased a key lime cheese ball dip mix at the Biltmore while camping in SC. I served it as a campfire snack with animal crackers & it was a hit! Thank You :)

    You can also use Southern Gourmet Outrageous Key Lime Pie Filling Mix. It is in a box at Walmart above the canned fruit pie filling.

    How long did it take to firm up in the refrigerator?? I have to make this with the ts almond pound cake!

  7. Star Miller says:

    The Tastefully Simple one uses one 8 oz pkg cream cheese. When you say 2 bricks do you mean 3 oz or 8 oz?

  8. Kay Kennedy says:

    Do you follow the instructions on the key-lime pie mix or dump the mix with the other ingredients?

    • Sarah Beals says:

      Oh, no… you just dump it in. :)

        My friends had the Tastefully Simple brand of this ball at their Christmas party last weekend so, as soon as I got home I Googled it and found your recipe. I ordered the recommended mix from Amazon and made it for my partner’s employee Christmas party. It was a huge success. We served it with the Teddy Bear graham crackers. Thank you for such a wonderful dessert.
