Lollipop, Lollipop...!



This month's Daring Baker's Challenge, Cheesecake Pops, was one of the most fun, creative, and whimsical recipes I've tried in a long while. I sort of felt like a candy maker as I dipped each cheesecake-on-a-stick into melted white and dark chocolate and then sprinkled all sorts of goodies onto the lollipops. I chose a bunch of different toppings for the pops like crushed graham crackers, chocolate and candy-coated sprinkles, crushed almond rocca, flaked coconut, and crushed chocolate wafers. This recipe makes a huge batch (I'm still making them as I type this!) so my lucky coworkers will be getting their share of lollipops come Monday morning. My boyfriend took a sample of a lollipop this morning and absolutely loved it. So a big thank-you to Deborah of Taste and Tell and Elle of Feeding My Enthusiasms for choosing April's DB Challenge. And if you'd like to check out other DB'ers version of Cheesecake Pops click HERE, or to make your own, check out this recipe on Deborah's site. Enjoy!

Nice pop assortment! Aren't you creative! And patient! You probably don't kick cats either...

I love that you used white chocolate. Not many of us went this route. I bet the white chocolate coconut cheesecake was divine.

These look so absolutely yummy. I think my favorite is the one with Heath Bars...simply scrumptious.

Graham crackers! I can't believe I didn't go that! Considering, it's cheesecake and all. They look wonderful and all your toppings look awesome!
