This is a really unusual way to create lollipops but it’s also a fun way to impress your family and friends, they won’t expect this twist for such a traditional dessert!
Preparation Time: 45 mins
Cook: 55 mins
Additional: 4 hrs 30 mins
- 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- ⅓ cup sour cream
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 24 lollipop sticks
- 10 ounces white confectioners’ coating
- miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- toasted coconut
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Mix in the sour cream and blend thoroughly, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add the flour, vanilla and salt and mix well. Add the eggs one at a time, blending thoroughly before adding the next egg, but do not overbeat. Pour batter into a 9-inch springform pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until the edges of the cake just begin to turn golden. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour, then refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out round balls of cheesecake. Roll them into 1 1/2-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Push a lollipop stick into each cheesecake ball. Place the tray in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
Melt the white confectioners’ coating (or semi-sweet chocolate). Dip each cheesecake pop into the melted coating. Then dip into one of the toppings. Place on waxed paper until the coating is set. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Store in the refrigerator.
