Cheesecake lovers, get excited! These super cute cheesecake pops are going to blow your mind! They are a fun twist on traditional cheesecake and make a unique party treat. I can’t think of a more adorable way to celebrate than with this no-bake cheesecake pops recipe.
Because we’re using a store bought cheesecake for this recipe, these are super easy to make. Once decorated, your guests will totally think they are from the cute bakery around the corner.
How To Make Cheesecake Pops
To make these no bake cheesecake pops, you’ll have to work quickly so the frozen cheesecake doesn’t warm up and the candy melts don’t cool down.
First, cut the cheesecake into triangle slices using a sharp knife. If the cheesecake is too hard to cut, let it sit out for a few minutes so it can soften up a bit. You can also run hot water over the knife to help it cut easily and cleanly.
Once you have all your cheesecake pieces, insert popsicle sticks into the center of each one.
Melt some candy melts in the microwave or over a double boiler. Once melted, dip each cheesecake pop into the chocolate. You can use a spoon to help coat the cheesecake bites evenly.
Finally decorate the vanilla cheesecake pops with your favorite toppings. We used rainbow sprinkles and purple and light blue drizzle, but you can get creative and use whatever you like.
These be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 7-10 days.
