Cheesecake Cake Pops

Cheesecake Cake Pops

We’ve decided to experiment and make chocolate cake pops with cheesecake center.

1. Preheat oven to 350. You can bake the cheesecake and the chocolate cake at the same time.

2. For a cheesecake (you can also purchase one at the store):
a. Mix sugar with softened cream cheese (to soften a cream cheese just put it in a microwave for a minute).
b. Mix in milk, then eggs (one at a time), then add sour cream, vanilla extract and flour; blend until smooth.
c. Bake in an oven for an hour. Chill in a refrigerator

3. For a chocolate cake:
a. Pour boiling water over cocoa and blend until smooth
b. Mix in a separate bowl flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt
c. Mix butter and sugar in a bowl; blend in eggs (one at a time), vanilla extract; add the flour blend with a cocoa mixture
d. Bake for 30-35 minutes

4. Once the cheesacake is chilled, make small (1/2 inch diameter) balls
5. Crumble the chocolate cake and pour the condensed milk in a bowl, mix it
6. Separate chocolate cake mixture into even parts. Make a flat rounds, place a cheesecake ball in the middle and wrap the chocolate cake around it and roll them into cake balls.
7. Dip a stick into condensed milk, put it inside the cake pop
8. Place into refrigerator to chill for 30 min
9. Melt chocolate and dip cake pops in it. Put back into refrigerator for 15-30 min

Your cake pops are now ready!

    just wanted to know whats the best chocolate to dip the cake pops i have used almond bark but have to many problems. even before i get have way with my dipping the chocolate starts to harden why is that can you please help me i spend so much money on almond barks still i am very disappointed. i asked so many people about using the Wilton candy melts but was told that can’t use it cuz it melts very easily. what do you suggest that’s best to use i do a lot of party’s. i use the chocolate pro to melt the barks but it seems to melt the bark a first then not even half way with my pops it stat’s to harden please help :-( thank you

  • mel

    I was just wondering if the “condensed milk” that is needed is sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk??

    • cakepops

      Hi Mel, yes it is sweetened.

  • mel

    Can they be left at room temperature? And if yes, how long?

    For a 1.25″ meatballer to get a consistant sized cake pop.

  • kristin

    @ lisa use a double boiler and add a table spoon of crisco shortening to your chocolate bark. It will smooth it out and the hot water will keep the chocolate melted. Just be careful not to burn yourself on the steam or to get any water in your chocolate.

  • Emma

    Instead of chocolate can it be a strawberry? And if so how. Thank you

  • nancy

    How many eggs go in the chocolate cake recipe? On average, how many does this recipe make? Thank you./

  • Tracey

    so the cheesecake recipe calls for 2 eggs.

    But the cake recipe calls to mix the butte and eggs together but does not list how many eggs in the ingredients?

  • Heather

    I want to make these this week and I also need to know how many eggs the chocolate cake calls for…thank you

  • cakepops

    it is also 2 eggs for the chocolate cake.

  • Kelli

    I’m confussed about #7: 7. Dip a stick into condensed milk, put it inside the cake pop. Is this done after you wrap the cheesecake in the chocolate cake? – Dip the whole cake pop in the condense milk?

  • Suse

    Kelli, you would wrap the cheesecake in the chocolate cake first to create your ball. Then dip the lollipop stick into condensed milk, and stick the stick into the ball. The condensed milk serves as a glue to hold the stick in place.

    Yummm .. combining two of my favorite things cheesecake and cake pops. I like that picture, it looks like the middle has a flame. Great recipe!

  • Reba

    How long are the cake pops good for? Will they still be good on day 3 in the fridge?

  • cakepops

    Amy, yes definitely they will be good on day 3 in the fridge.
    Suse, my wife created this awesome recipe!

  • erika

    how many cake pops does this recipe make?

    • Anonymous

      Erika, thanks for your question, the answer is about 15 cakepops.

  • Hdsupred

    I am kinda baking challenged… How difficult is this to make?

    • Anonymous

      They are not difficult at all; just follow the recipe. However, it will take you some time. We like to bake the cakes on the 1st day and then prepare cake pops on the following day. But if you dont have that much time you can make them on the same day.

    Can you use the pre made cheesecake in a tub that Philidelphia cream cheese brands sells?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, absolutely.

  • minniemeX3

    Hi, how do I make them a bit more moist? I’m using a cake pop “maker” but they’re not moist enough. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • Mwhittles34

    The cake part didnt come out as gooey as yours in the picture it was more like hard, are you supposed to let it cool before you crumble it?

  • Amandagrace1028

    You don’t list vanilla extract as an ingredient in the chocolate cake but you list it in the directions for the chocolate cake. Is there supposed to be vanilla in the chocolate cake? If so, how much?

    Can the cake pops be stored in freezer?
