A Yummy looking recipe from a TOH Magazine, I haven't tried these yet but they sound so yummy, i'm putting it here so I can keep it on hand :) I Think this could do just as well as cheesecake balls to serve at a party also. I think I may try this while skipping the steps to add the graham cracker crumbs and see how that turns out too :) You could also use chocolate graham crackers for an extra chocolate touch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line A 9 inch springform or metal pan with parchment paper and coat the paper and sides of the pan with spray.
  2. Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in sour crean and vanilla until blended.
  3. Add eggs and beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Place pan on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minute then carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen. Cool for 1 more hour, cover and freeze overnight.
  5. Remove from freezer and let stand for 30 minute then place cracker crumbs in a shallow bowl. Working quickly, scoop out 1-in. balls of cheesecake, roll each ball in the crumbs and insert a stick, place on waxed paper in the freezer for 1 hour.
  6. In a microwave, melt vanilla chips and shortening at 70% power, stir until smooth( I do this first 30 seconds, stir, then if not done 10 seconds and stir again until melted, you don't want to over-melt!), place toppings in bowls. Dip balls in melted chips then roll in topping of choice. Let cool and store in the refridgerater.
  7. Enjoy!

These are great!! I made for a baby shower to give out as part of the favors and they were a big hit!! I just sprinkled with colored sprinkles but will have to try them again and use mini chocolate chips so it makes chocolate cheesecake. Made for 2012 Spring PAC.
