Cheesecake Balls

I LOVE cheesecake and could easily eat it every day. I wanted to make something special with cheesecake for Valentine’s Day, so the Pinterest search began!  I found the most amazing dessert by Bakerella and I can’t thank you enough Bakerella! I was so excited to make Cheesecake Balls!  What a perfect treat for me!  When I quickly remembered that I had a cheesecake in my freezer, it was a sign that I needed to make this dessert, immediately.   I am not talking about just any cheesecake, but an Assorted Cheesecake with six flavors.  Yes, six ridiculously delicious flavors: classic, strawberry swirl, triple chocolate, brownie, chocolate marble, and wild berry!  Seriously?  Cheesecake Balls were meant to be made at my house!  What great timing to find this recipe and have a perfect cake just waiting to be transformed into Cheesecake Balls!  They were a HUGE hit at my house…huge, and we just kept eating and eating these scrumptious little pops!  I promised Aubrey I would save her some because she absolutely needs to try them, but let me tell you, it is really difficult to look at them in my refrigerator and not eat every single one. The original recipe used a classic cheesecake, which would be wonderful, but I am really glad I had so many different flavors in one cake because each Cheesecake Ball is unique.  You are surprised when you bite into each one.  I am pretty sure I have tried every flavor.  Look how beautiful they are on the inside!

I finally had to cover them up, put them in the refrigerator, and walk away. Cheesecake Balls are an incredible dessert and are extremely addictive!  They would be a perfect treat for Valentine’s Day, a date night, or a party!  For the most part, I am trying to be healthy and make good eating choices, but I am completely okay with giving into my cheesecake cravings.  If you like cheesecake, try Cheesecake Balls!  You will be very glad you did!  They are phenomenal!

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • Cheesecake
  • Crushed Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • Almond Bark and/or Candy Melts
  • Crisco Shortening
  • Sprinkles
  • Parchment Paper
  • Lollipop Sticks
Instructions
  1. Crush a packet of graham crackers into fine crumbs (or you can buy a box of graham cracker crumbs)
  2. Put the crumbs in a bowl or on a plate and set aside
  3. Scoop out small pieces of cheesecake (avoiding the graham cracker crust on the cake)
  4. Roll into a ball
  5. Roll the ball in the graham cracker crumbs
  6. Place on parchment paper (on a cookie sheet)
  7. Repeat with the entire cheesecake (If the cheesecake gets too soft, place it back in the freezer for a little while until it gets firm)
  8. Place the cookie sheet of rolled balls in the freezer (the original recipe says for about 20-30 minutes, but I left mine in for over an hour)
  9. While the balls are in the freezer, melt almond bark or candy melts (color(s) of your choice)
  10. Add a small amount of Crisco to the chocolate to thin it out
  11. Once the chocolate has melted, remove the balls from the freezer
  12. Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and into a cheesecake ball
  13. Dip the entire ball in the melted chocolate
  14. Pull the ball out of the chocolate and while holding the lollipop stick, roll the cheesecake ball around so excess chocolate drips off
  15. Place on parchment paper
  16. Put sprinkles on the cheesecake ball before the chocolate dries
  17. Repeat for each ball
  18. Again, if they start getting too soft, place back in the freezer for several minutes before dipping in the melted chocolate
  19. Let them dry completely, then place in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them
  20. Or, eat a whole bunch and then put the ones that are left in the refrigerator
  21. ENJOY
