Ingredients

  • Cheesecake
  • Crushed Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • Almond Bark and/or Candy Melts
  • Crisco Shortening
  • Sprinkles
  • Parchment Paper
  • Lollipop Sticks

Instructions

  • Crush a packet of graham crackers into fine crumbs (or you can buy a box of graham cracker crumbs)
  • Put the crumbs in a bowl or on a plate and set aside
  • Scoop out small pieces of cheesecake (avoiding the graham cracker crust on the cake)
  • Roll into a ball
  • Roll the ball in the graham cracker crumbs
  • Place on parchment paper (on a cookie sheet)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • While the balls are in the freezer, melt almond bark or candy melts (color(s) of your choice)
  • Add a small amount of Crisco to the chocolate to thin it out
  • Once the chocolate has melted, remove the balls from the freezer
  • Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and into a cheesecake ball
  • Dip the entire ball in the melted chocolate
  • Pull the ball out of the chocolate and while holding the lollipop stick, roll the cheesecake ball around so excess chocolate drips off
  • Place on parchment paper
  • Put sprinkles on the cheesecake ball before the chocolate dries
  • Repeat for each ball
  • Again, if they start getting too soft, place back in the freezer for several minutes before dipping in the melted chocolate
  • Let them dry completely, then place in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them
  • Or, eat a whole bunch and then put the ones that are left in the refrigerator
  • ENJOY
