A fun twist on a traditional cheesecake recipe, these fun 'lollies' will impress your family and friends. They're especially nice at a buffet-style dinner party when laid out on a nice platter.
You can use mini chocolate chips, toasted coconut, chopped nuts or hundreds and thousands to decorate the lollies.
Confectionery coating is found online or in baking shops. You may get a 'professional' look with confectionery coating, however white chocolate will taste just as nice!
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! - 22 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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!! - 05 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 23 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
