Today's recipe is CHEESECAKE POPS! Don't they sound and look delicious? Well, I've got news for you... they ARE delicious! I pulled the recipe from a book the hubs gave me last year called "Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey" by Jill O'Connor. Thanks babe! After the success of this recipe, you'll probably see Jill's other goodies pop up a time or two.

{Jill has a great cheesecake recipe that even I could get right!}

What you need:

Five 8 oz packages of Cream Cheese, at room temp
2 Cups Sugar
1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
5 Large Eggs
2 Egg Yolks
2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Heavy Cream

Boiling Water as needed
30-40 8-inch lollipop sticks
Dipping Chocolate and Toppings

  • With hand mixer on low, beat cream cheese, sugar, flour and salt until smooth.
  • Add the whole eggs and then egg yolks one at a time, beating well {on low} after each addition.
  • Beat in the vanilla and cream.

  • Lightly grease a 10-inch baking pan {or 9 x 13}
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan
  • Place the cake pan in a large roasting pan {or cookie sheet}
  • Fill the roasting pan with boiling water until it reaches half-way up the cake pan

Bake until cheesecake is firm and slightly golden on top {35-45 min}

{remove cheesecake from oven and cool to room temp}
{refrigerate at least 3 hours, or up to over night}

{when cold and firm, scoop the cheesecake into 2-ounce balls}

{place balls on parchment paper and carefully insert lollipop sticks}
{freeze the pops, uncovered, until very hard- at least 2 hrs}

{while pops are freezing, prepare any wanted toppings}

{we used oreos, butterfingers, graham cracker crumbs, mini m&ms, and reece's}

{when cheesecake pops are frozen, prepare chocolate coating as directed on package}
{quickly dip frozen cheesecake pop in the melted chocolate}
{shake off any excess}
{dip or sprinkle with desired toppings}
{place on clean parchment paper}

{we made 35 pops with plenty of cheesecake to spare}

{Mmm... don't they look tasty?}

{sorry, couldn't help myself}

{what toppings would you add?}

NOTE: If the prospect of making your own cheesecake from scratch is intimidating to you, you could easily make these with a cheesecake purchased from the store! Just scoop the cheesecake into balls and pick up from there on the recipe!
