This is similar to Sandra Lee's Sugar Plum Lollipops...but made a little different. This makes a wonderful presentation and everybody can have whatever cheesecake topped the way they like it. Similar to my V's Favorite Cheesecake Bar.

Yummy!! I used Absolutely the Best New York Cheesecake (Gluten-Free) for the cheesecake filling after baked. I didn't use nuts as some in our family don't like nuts, but oh the possibilites with this one with different varieties of cheesecake, mini M&ms, coconut.. Yummy! Thanks, Chef~V! :)
