Cheesecake Pops!

Cheesecake Pops

Okay, be honest. How many of you saw this coming? After last week’s cheesecake success, It was finally the perfect opportunity to give these little treats a try. The first time I remember seeing them was April, a year ago. I remember because I had not been home long after showing Martha how to make Cupcake Pops. I was looking at some of my favorite blogs and everywhere I looked, I started seeing chocolate covered balls on sticks. I mean everywhere. I was like, holy cow, Martha really has some heavy mojo. Then, I laughed at myself when I realized, Martha and I had nothing to do with it. The pops I was seeing were part of a Daring Bakers Challenge where tons of bloggers tackle a new dessert each month and that month they had coincidentally picked cheesecake pops inspired by the book Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey. Well, I finally saw this book a couple of weeks ago in the bookstore, and I had to immediately have it. Let me just tell you, it is a feast for your sugar-loving eyes. When I flipped through it again last weekend, I was reminded of all those beautiful cheesecake pops and it seemed only natural for me to finally give them a go.

And, it didn’t hurt any that I had half a plain jane cheesecake sitting in the refrigerator waiting to be experimented on.

Cheesecake

I used a small ice cream scoop and scooped up as many balls as I could, trying not to scrape the graham cracker crust into it. I didn’t want it to look ugly, you know. I guess, if I was going to make these on purpose, I would bake my cheesecake in a regular 2-3″ high cake pan and not use a crust at all.

Scooped Cheesecake

I got 12 easy, from half of the cheesecake. I could have probably squeaked out a couple more, but I might have eaten a few sections of cheesecake along the way. Maybe.

I didn’t really roll these, but I did kind of shape them a little to make them more round.

Cheesecake Balls

And, then because they were lumpier than I am used to with the cake pops, I dropped each one in a small bowl filled with graham cracker crumbs and rolled it around to coat. This helped to shape them better as well.

Then, I popped them in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up. (Maybe about 20-30 min. for these.)

While they were chilling. I heated up some chocolate candy melts in the microwave (30 sec intervals, stirring in between) and got my sticks and decorations ready.

Sprinkles

I went with teeny tiny hearts in red, white and pink. A hearts and jimmies mix in red, white pink and brown … and also just some dark chocolate that I chopped up in a mini food processor.

Note: I’m pretty sure a few of you are going to want to know where those baking cups came from. Check out www.confectioneryhouse.com

So, after the balls became firm, I dipped one end of my lollipop stick in some of the melted candy coating and then inserted it into the cheesecake ball. I immediately dunked the pop in a deep bowl of melted candy coating and then sprinkled to decorate. Each one was then placed in a styrofoam block to completely dry. Then, they went in the refrigerator to await their fate.

Note: It will really help if you use a bowl that is deep enough to completely submerge the pop in chocolate and remove in one motion. It also helps if your chocolate is on the thinner side. (You can melt a little shortening in it to thin it out some.) Once, you remove it, carefully tap the excess off while balancing the pop on the stick. You may need to rotate your hand so that gravity keeps the pop in place long enough for the chocolate to start to set around the base. Add the decorations before it sets too much also or they won’t stick to the surface. These were slightly harder to manage than the cake pops. One… they were larger and heavier because of using the scooper. Two… the cheesecake texture wasn’t as sticky as the cake pop mixture.

But… I think they turned out beautifully.

Let’s take a closer look…

Cheesecake Pops

A little closer.

Cheesecake Pops

Closer.

Cheesecake Close-Up

Whoops, just couldn’t resist. YUM-O-RAMA!

So, you say you don’t want to do a balancing act to make all these on sticks. Here’s another way you can do it. And it’s easier.

Cheesecake Pops

Take your graham cracker-coated cheesecake ball and drop it in the bowl of melted candy coating.

Cheesecake Balls

Don’t stir it. Just spoon some chocolate over the top until it is covered. Then, scoop it out with a spoon and tap off some of the excess by tapping the spoon on the side of the bowl. Then, just let it slide right off onto some wax paper. Insert your stick and add any decorations. Told you this was easier. I didn’t tap these as much as I do regular cake balls because I was going for the Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey look that Jill O’Connor shows in her book.

Cheesecake Pops

Messy looks good, too, don’t you think?

If you want to make some Cheesecake Pops … you will need:

Cheesecake (Buy one if you want to get straight to the fun stuff. Shhh… I won’t tell. You can also use this recipe.)
Mini ice cream scoop
Chocolate candy melts
Sprinkles
Lollipop sticks
Wax paper
Dark chocolate, chopped
Graham cracker crumbs
Dipping bowl
Styrofoam block

and…

Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey if you want to feast your eyes on more messy yumminess.

You can also check the Google results for the Daring Baker’s Cheesecake Pop Challenge and see tons more versions to drool over.

Enjoy!

Dana said...

Yumm! I made these for a friend's bridal shower. I bought a big cheesecake from Costco, cut the cake in half & put it in the Kitchenaid – crust & all. Mix it up & then scoop the balls. The crumbs give it some texture. You can also add melted chocolate to the cheesecake mix to make chocolate cheesecake balls! So delicious!

Bakerella,
I have made the cupcake pops a couple times now and I can’t wait to try these!! Last time I made them I used the Wilton Chocolate Melting Pot and had really good luck. It just keeps the melts/bark warm so you can keep going and going!
Thanks for all the great ideas:)

Here’s another idea for you: I made cheesecake pops at Christmas and covered them in white chocolate, then dipped them in crushed peppermint candies. Easy, yummy, and festive! I also did some with red and green jimmies. Big hit with the family!

Keep up with your amazing creativity; I LOVE your blog!

Oh my goodness…just when I thought life couldn’t get any better, Bakerella makes cheesecake pops! The world is a better place because of you! I can’t buy books like that, simply because I am sure I gain weight just by looking at and drooling over the pictures! Great work, as always!

Cakedreamer said...

Do you think there is something else that could be used to give them shape? I was trying to think of something besides graham crackers…since I actually have cheescake and lollipop sticks and no graham crackers. Any ideas? Or could I just do it w/o and they might be a little lumpy?

Ummmmm…

Heaven on a stick!!! When I lived in Maryland, I used to order an amazing cheesecake pop lollipop tree from a yummy italian restaurant in Rockville. They had strawberry cheesecake ones, key lime pie flavored, dark chocolate… Again, HEAVEN ON A STICK. I tried making them myself by just made a big mess. I think your idea of rolling them in a bit of graham cracker dust would really help with the sticky mess I was dealing with. My mouth thanks you, Bakerella – though my tummy – the squishy part – may need to have a few words with you :O)

Hugs and cheesecake pops!

Hey Bakerella! I am a huge fan of your blog, so imagine my surprise when I saw a big, beautiful shot of cheesecake pops on your blog! Love the shout out to my book Sticky, Chewy, Messy,Gooey! Who knew sweet pops of all stripes would become so popular? I would love to send you a copy of my new book for you to test with your niece–it’s called “Sticky,Chewy,Messy,Gooey Treats for Kids” (check out the cover on the Chronicle Books website) Send me note on jilloconnorcooks.com and I’ll send it to you when it comes out in October!
Thanks Again…

Dana – Cool. that sounds easy.

Coco – Maybe I'll invest in one of those. I'm sure I would get my money's worth.

Elizabeth – Thanks

Lori – about 1.5 inches wide

Cakedreamer – and kind of crushed cookie should work. Or even a light dusting of straight sugar.

Dana – I would read some of the comments in any of the pop posts. They answer of lot of questions.

Megan and Brian – Thanks so much for your sweet note.

Remi Lawrence – Usually in just a styrofoam block. Make sure it won't tip over though.

joconnor – I'm coming right over to say HI!

I’ve made similar pops before, but I baked a cheesecake with no crust, then scooped it all out into a bowl and mashed it all up, put the mixture in a pastry bag and piped out little globs, then stuck a stick in, froze them and dunked in chocolate. Yours are MUCH prettier, though! =D Lovely, as always!

These were yummy, mine weren’t nearly as pretty though. How do you keep them on the stick? Mine kept falling off after I dipped them. Also how do you get them totally dipped? Mine had spots on the top not covered. Thanks, this was totally yummy though! Please Let me know what I am doing wrong, so they turn out even better! I love your blog and all your ideas!

Hi Bakerella! I LOVE your blog – I really look forward to reading your new posts.

I tried the cheesecake pops and they came out so good! I even tried some different variations – such as using cheesecake as a filling in candy (using the molds). I know these will be a big hit at the engagement party I'm going to this weekend! Thanks for the great idea and can't wait to see what you show us next!

Parker Family – You probably just need to use a deeper bowl.

Chandra – Mickey pops could be symbolic. Use black candy color to tint white melts and then add some small round and black candy to the sides for the ears by glueing with some of the melted chocolate.

Jenna – I need to check that stuff out!

Julie – they look like cupcake shots. pretty cool.

hawsfam – creepy and cute!

I have been thinking about these cheesecake pops for a few days now ever since I saw this last post, and I have to admit, after making those easter egg cake pops last April, I seriously think I would rather just eat cake and eat cheesecake without dipping it in all the sweet stuff. But that's just me. You obviously are very creative in the kitchen and I have to give you credit.

okay so I tried the normal cake pops, the sticks i got failed so i ended up just making cake bites. and dear god they are possibly the sweetest things i have ever eaten in my life. Is that normal? are they sposed to be disgustingly sweet? I mean, they are good, but I myself can eat…1. :p Maybe I put in too much frosting? I only used 3/4 of a can. feedback would be awesome ;)

Vanilla and Thyme – already done.

Sara and the Boys – read the suggestions in the comments to that post. There are some good ones.

JessicaDarling – You'll need to add shortening if you do.

Millie – me too. I'm still looking.

buckeyebarrys – it might be a little difficult.

sue treschi – read back through the post. they are inserted into styrofoam blocks to dry.

This is a general cake pop question and pardon me if this has already been answered – do you have any tips on shipping cake pops? And would you recommend freezing them before shipping them? Thanks in advance!

My girlfriend just introduced me to your website – and I'm in love! You have inspired her to make these fabulous cake pops and we're actually giving it a shot together next week!! I hope they turn out half as good as yours. I'll be posting them on my blog, so hope you can come check them out!

Beautiful! I have two questions for you.
1) how did you manage to make them so they didnt have a flat bit from the melted chocolate coating when it sets on the tray?
2) when I made truffles i melted chocolate and dipped them in that. While they were drying a strange white texture developed on them. Any idea what it could be? Yours are so perfect!

Leah – they don't have to be frozen, but I package them really well in covered in treat bags placed in pastry boxes. Those boxes placed in larger boxes with peanuts or bubble wrap.

Joel – They dried standing up. Not upside down. Place the lollipop sticks in a styrofoam block. I think that happens to chocolate that has been melted and hardened a few times. Maybe in transit before it gets to the store. Just a guess.
