Key lime pie screams summer and reminds you of sitting on the beach with a margarita in hand. They are the perfect combination of creamy, tart, and sweet.

Creating the recipe takes less than 15 minutes. The recipe says you need a food processor, but you could also smash the graham crackers with a heavier object, like a rolling pin, to get the same effect.

The only negative of this dessert is that you need to refrigerate overnight, so you have to plan ahead of time if you want it for a picnic. Make sure you warm up the peanut butter otherwise you won’t get the correct consistency you want for the dessert.
