Daring Bakers – 7th Challenge: Cheesecake Pops

Where has the month gone!… Back to working fulltime, my food blogging has come to a veritable stop, Cheesecake Popsthough I’ve been cooking and baking more than ever. 🙂

This month’s challenge was hosted by Elle – Feeding My Enthusiasms and Deborah – Taste and Tell.
The recipe involved making cheesecake and turning it into lollipops coated with chocolate. I decided to do half the recipe – the original calling for five (5) 8 oz bricks of cream cheese – way too much cheesecake to have around the house. Everything turned out fine. My baking time was more 1h15 hours than the 35 minutes called in the recipe. The consistency was really nice and silky, and a snap to do in the mixer, meaning this is a recipe I’ll definitely be turning to again. Though the process was simple, there was a lot of time involved in letting things cool, then freeze. I tried to form the balls using an ice cream scooper, which sort of worked. The resulting shapes weren’t the most delicate (or lollipop-like), but looked a bit better once coated with the chocolate. In retrospect, I should have slightly frozen the cheesecake before scooping.

Thanks for the challenge, ladies! 🙂
