Cheesecake Pops

Filed under: POPS — Zakia @ 4:51 pm

This months Daring Baker challenge was Cheesecake Pops chosen by Elle of Feeding My Enthusiasms and Deborah of Taste and Tell.

I have to admit that when I first found out this months challenge, I was intrigued.  Then i saw the pictures and i was super excited.  Immediately i started thinking of all the decorating possibilities, which seemed to be endless.  Plus i love cheesecake!  I couldn’t wait!
I halved the recipe, I felt that this was very necessary since i live alone, am trying to start a diet and love cheesecake :).  I baked my cheesecake an 8×3 cakepan for about 50 minutes and had no problems with it setting up.  I formed the ball the next day, inserted the sticks and put the tray in the freezer.  I just have to say that 2oz seemed like alot.  The pops seemed quite huge compared to the sticks.  I had a few spoonfuls of cheesecake left over so i had to eat.  Wow, this is one of the richest, creamiest cheesecakes i have ever eaten.
The next day i started dipping.  I used colored candy melts along with regular chocolate to coat the pops.  Then i dipped them.  The pic you see show the following
  • coconut
  • graham cracker
  • yellow sprinkles
  • halloween sprinkles
  • valentine sprinkles
  • green sanding sugar
  • cinnamon
  • crushed peppermint
  • candied ginger
I had some problems with the sticks coming loose but it mostly went ok.  Since the cheesecake was coming straight from the freezer, when i used the candy melts they would become solid before i could finish dipping them, so i had to work really quick with those.  I wish i could have gotten them more round/smoother but I still think they look great.
My only regret is that I wish i would have made the entire recipe, this way i could have tried more flavor and decoration combinations.

  5. I really like the idea of the candied ginger, that would really cut back on the sweetness of the cheesecake. I haven’t seen that before!

  8. I thought 2 oz was a bit too big as well so I made mine 1 oz balls instead and they were just right.
