Cheesecake Pops

Here is a fun treat to make with your kids.Again,it is an easy dessert,but definitely delicious.No baking,just the leftovers from yesterday's cheesecake(hopefully you still have some),melting chocolate and assorted sprinkles.
Your favorite Cheesecake
Chocolate & White Chocolate Melts(I use Merkens)
assorted sprinkles
lollipop sticks
   Using a spoon,scoop about 1 tbsp. of cheesecake and using your hands,roll into a ball.This is a messy job,so be prepared.Place the cheesecake onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for 10 minutes.Remove the baking sheet and place one lollipop stick into each ball.Return to the freezer for at least 45 minutes.
  While the pops are freezing,melt your chocolate in a double boiler(or in a heat-proof bowl set over a small saucepan with 2 inches of simmering water).Remove the pops from the freezer and quickly dip each pop into the chocolate.Sprinkle on the desired topping and place back onto the parchemnt lined baking sheet.If the chocolate does not harden right away,place back in the freezer for a few minutes.These pops will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days..if they last that long!
***It is very important to freeze the cheesecake balls first,or they will begin to melt as soon as you dip them into the melted chocolate.
***You can add food coloring to white chocolate to make different colors for your pops.
***A few of these pops in a small vase make a great centerpiece for your table!
