A recipe my daughter found on Pinterest



I have spent the last 3 days thinking about making these pops.  Originally, my 16 year old daughter sent this recipe to me from one of her gazillion 'finds' on Pinterest.  (I don't do Pinterest but she spends enough time on there for both of us! Ha ha)   I thought it looked fun and yummy so I printed off a copy and then saved it to my website file collection so I could make them.  Today might be the day!

Even though we have a chocolate cake with fluffy white frosting on the counter and a white cake ready to be made into a trifle, I cannot stop thinking about these fun cheesecake bites.



Funfetti Cheesecake Pops 

20 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
2 eggs
3 tablespoons of nonpareils or Jimmies
Lollipop sticks


White Chocolate Dipping Sauce:
 2/3 cups white chocolate
1 tablespoons heavy cream
4 tablespoons powdered sugar, sifted
4-5 tablespoons water, warm

Chocolate Pouring Sauce:
2/3 cups dark chocolate
2 tablespoons heavy cream
4 tablespoons powdered sugar, sifted
4-5 tablespoons water, warm

Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Turn mixer speed to low and add heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract and mix to combine. Add one egg at time and mix to combine. Divide batter into three even portions. Pour first portion into pan and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of nonpareil on top. Pour the second portion of the cheescake batter directly on top and then sprinkle the second tablespoon of nonpareils. Repeat this again for the last layer. *Do not stir. The nonpareils will streak if mixed.

Create a shallow water bath by placing the cheesecake batter filled pan in a large roasting pan or casserole pan and filling it with water a 1/3 of the way up. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool finished cheesecake on a cooling rack.

White Chocolate Dipping Sauce:
Place chocolate and heavy cream in a bowl over simmering water. Let chocolate and cream sit for 2-3 minutes to melt without stirring. Then slowly stir mixture to combine. Add powdered sugar and mix to combine. (Mixture will look seized but the water will smooth it out). Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition until pouring consistency is reached. Set aside and let sauce cool to warm.

Chocolate Pouring Sauce:
Place chocolate and heavy cream in a bowl over simmering water. Let chocolate and cream sit for 2-3 minutes to melt without stirring. Then slowly stir mixture to combine. Add powdered sugar and mix to combine. (Mixture will look seized but the water will smooth it out).Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition until pouring consistency is reached. Set aside and let sauce cool to warm.


Cut cheesecake into ½ inch squares. Place squares on parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Remove from freezer and let cheesecake rest at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Insert Lollipop sticks and push a small marshmallow on top. Dip cheesecake pop in white chocolate and place on a clean sheet of parchment to dry. Once dried, pour milk chocolate on top and sprinkle with nonpareils and jimmies.
