Key Lime Pie Pretzel Ice Cream Sandwich Bites

Summertime… and the live’n is easy.  Or should be.  

Ice cream sandwiches should be a part of summer menus. And fuss free. And full of flavor. Like these!  The no-cook Key Lime Pie Ice Cream is quick to make and the sandwiches too. Perfect for when you “want just a little something sweet,” these baby sandwiches fit the bill on that one.  Enjoy just one… or a few!  These are especially good served for dessert with seafood meals… like little bites of Key Lime Pie, but better!

The crunch and saltiness of the pretzels hugging the creamy, sweet and tangy lime ice cream make a perfect pairing.  I do hope you will make some… great to have on hand for when folks drop by to sit on the porch, or while dip’n your toes in the pool too!
You might even grab one on the way to bed… ssshhh, I won’t tell.

Being able to use any type of crabmeat makes this recipe budget-friendly. Use fresh NC crab when possible. Wonder why it’s called “deviled” crab? Because of the heat!
