Mini Key Lime Mousse Pie

Morsels of Life - Mini Key Lime Mousse Pie - Sweet and tart - whip up some mini key lime mousse pies. No baking required and full of yumminess!

One of my mother in law's favorite treats is key lime pie, and since we were planning to get together, I thought I could make something similar for her. However, with her birthday being in the summer, I wasn't really wanting to heat up the entire apartment by turning on the oven. Then, I thought about incorporating the sweetly tart flavor of limes and condensed milk in these mini key lime mousse pies. She'd get the flavors she loves, and I get to keep the apartment cool. Or at least not as sweltering. Win-win!

What are some of your favorite no-bake desserts?
