Key Lime Pie Bites made with M&M’S® Pastel Chocolate Candies

Makes: 18 bites


  1. Preheat an oven to 350ºF.

  2. In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Stir in chopped M&M’S® Pastel Chocolate Candies.

  3. Lightly coat mini-cheesecake pans with nonstick baking spray. Add approximately 1 tablespoon of the graham crumb mixture to each cheesecake vessel and press to form a crust on the bottom.

  4. Bake crusts about 6 minutes or until they just begin to turn light brown. Remove from oven and set aside.

  5. In a stand mixer using a paddle attachment, beat cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add sweetened condensed milk until fully combined. Slowly add in key lime juice until mixture starts to thicken.

  6. Pour approximately 1½ tablespoons of filling onto each crust.

  7. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

  8. Remove from cheesecake pan and top with lime zest. Serve immediately.
