Lime Cheeseball

Ready In: 3 Hours 15 Minutes
Servings: 16
"One lime flavors a sweet cheese ball to make a very refreshing snack for a spring or summer get-together. Serve with mini graham crackers. "
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp. Zest of a lime
Juice of one lime
1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs or chopped nuts

1.In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, butter, confectioners' sugar, lime zest and juice using an electric mixer. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
2.When the mixture is completely chilled, shape into a ball and roll in graham cracker crumbs. Serve on a platter with your favorite crackers.

This makes a great dip. We had it with homemade waffle cones broken up. It would be good as a fruit dip as well.
