Cheesecake Pops

Published by at 3:08 pm under Desserts

The finished product of cheese cake pops
If you are in need of a fun and cute dessert to impress your guests, then these Cheesecake Pops are the way to go! They were originally created by the Queen of Baking herself, Bakerella. I really do bow down to her creativity and baking skills. My friend Cecille wanted to make these Cheesecake Pops for her company party, so I helped her make a big batch. All we needed were a few ingredients: a prepared cheesecake, graham crackers, candy melt, sprinkles, and lollipop sticks. It’s really simple, but can be a bit messy. We also made her Cupcake Pops awhile ago, which is much more time-consuming. But with any baking adventure, just have fun with it! You’ll be so impressed and proud of yourself!

You can buy any cheesecake you like; we opted for the big one at Costco. This helps save you a ton of time from making the actual cheesecake. But if you want to make it from scratch, be my guest.

We scraped all of the cream off of the cheesecake since its too moist. You only want to use the cheesecake portion of the cake since it's most dense.

Using your hands, form them into golf-sized balls. Pack it so it's nice and firm.

Put them on a lined tray and pop them into the freezer for about 20-30 minutes until it gets harder. This will help the lollipop stick secure better.

Cecille wanted to use white candy melt, but feel free to use any color you like. Melt them in the microwave. Tip: You can add some shortening so the candy melt isn't too thick. Take a cheesecake ball and insert a lollipop stick, then coat the ball with the candy melt. Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect - the sprinkles will help conceal the flaws.

As soon as you swirl the candy melt on the pop, add the sprinkles so that it will stick. The candy melt should dry pretty fast. Since we didn't have a styrofoam ball to stick them in to dry, we placed them in shot glasses being careful not to tip them over. Once dried, we placed them upside down in the cupcake liners.

That's all there is to it! From one large cheesecake, you can yield about 30 treats. You won't be able to resist biting into one of these adorable Cheesecake Pops. And needless to say, they were a huge hit at her company party!

    Classic cheesecake pop for me…just like I always choose a slice of classic cheesecake :)
    These pops are lovely…I simple love the shape of it, it’s so hip to eat many of them.

    I’ve made something similar to this in the past–colorful chocolate covered cheesecake balls. I just love the idea of putting them on a pop. It looks so cute! I am so keeping this in mind to try. Thanks!

    Things with sticks are impossible to resist, and there is something that I love about a recipe that gets you to take a perfectly good dish and transform it into something else. Also, sprinkles make everything better.

    so great! just made these for my daughter’s preschool birthday treat. i made my own lemony crustless NY style cheesecake (cuz i’m CHEAP!). i used cinnamon graham crackers, varied colors of candy melts with colored sugar instead of jimmies, and stuck the final products into a piece of floral styrofoam oasis for a pleasing presentation. will definitely do this again! your approach was the easiest and one of the few that incorporated the graham cracker flavor to the flavors. THANK YOU!
