My boss' birthday is tomorrow and I wanted to make her a cake or something. I was going to try out Bakerella's cake pops and saw cheesecake pops on her blog. I decided to give them a try. I used premade cheesecake filling though.
I just scooped it out with a mini ice cream scoop (it's actually marketed as a cookie scoop). It helps if you put the filling in the freezer for a little bit so it doesn't stick to the scoop as bad. This filling is way softer than a regular cheesecake would be. I decided not to do "pops" because they were so soft I don't think they would stay on the stick.I almost forgot this step. While the cheesecake balls were in the freezer to harden a little, I crushed up some graham crackers in the food processor.
I then rolled the balls in the graham cracker crumbs.
I put them back in the freezer for a little bit. While they were in the freezer I melted the chocolate coating (found in the baking aisle at Wal-Mart, nothin fancy!) in the microwave in a glass dish. I used two spoons to get the chocolate on the balls. This was the worst part and a little bit of trial and error! I just put the ball on one spoon that had some chocolate on it. Then I spooned chocolate over the top (all done over the glass dish). I jiggled the spoon a little to get rid of the excess. Dumped it out onto the parchment paper. Some of them had a little spot where there was no chocolate after coming off the spoon so I just drizzled more chocolate over them.
