This is a very nice recipe and they are so cute. I dipped my cheesecake pops in melted semi-sweet chocolate and rolled it in crushed graham cracker crumbs. This made it taste just like the cheesecake had a bit of the crust on it. Delish!
Mine came out horrible! It wasn't sweet enough and it didn't really taste like cheesecake either.
Oh my gosh! Be really really careful not to overcook the cheesecake even the tiniest of bits. I got distracted by the phone, and ended up with a crust. Picked the crust off, and tried to scoop the balls. But they had a very poor texture, part creamy, part hard, and I ended up having to reblend the whole cooked cheesecake, which I then put back in the fridge. The melon-baller wouldn't work because of the blending, so I had to form the balls by hand, which was a mess. It worked out and tasted good, but I added a lot of extra work and stress, and I was haunted by the idea that they could have been much better than they were (even though they were a big hit). I am here to tell you, do not over-bake the cheesecake!!
Loved these. Instead of using a scooper I used a little non flavored pam on food plastic sanitation gloves that you can get at Sam's etc. and rolled them into balls. After making all the balls I then put on new gloves and rolled them into the mixtures that I had prepared ahead of time that we like, used flat hand of palm against top and inserted sticks to the other end then put in fridge. Made prep time so much easier and everyone loved that they could have there own favorites without having to make twenty different cheesecakes. Thanks so much for the post.
I made these for a baby shower and everyone just loved them and wanted to know how to make them. They were a bit time consuming, and I forgot to dip them in toppings while they were still wet (so that they would stick) and instead just had some dipping sauces, caramel and raspberry preserves. I had white chocolate on some of the cheesecake balls and milk chocolate on others, and my favorite was the white chocolate balls dipped in the raspberry preserves. YUM!! I will definately make these again, but only for special occasions.
What a great idea!!! I am going to make these for my day's birthday party. A suggestions to those who said it was messy. I make peanut butter balls and i use a half a stick of paraffin wax in the bag of choc. chips i melt. this thins it out.
I made key lime cheesecake pops for my husband for his birthday. It was quite messy and I was worried they wouldn't turn out, but after a couple of hours in the freezer, they were so easy to decorate! I dipped them in white chocolate and did graham crackers, coconut and fresh raspberries for my toppings. This is a great way to present cheesecake in a fun and new way!! Both kids and adults go crazy for it!! Thanks for the idea!
Great recipe. Big hit at the office. We made one strawberry cheesecake and one coconut macaroon cheesecake. We coated the strawberry cheesecake with white chocolate and drizzled the remaining strawberry sauce on top before setting. We coated the coconut macaroon cheesecake in semi-sweet chocolate and sprinkled toasted coconut on top. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for a great idea.
