Today, I’m going to share one of the most yummiest treats you can make for your next game day party: Snickers Cheesecake Pops. And since I know you want to spend your time watching the game, you’ll be happy to know this is actually fairly simple, but impressive enough that your guests will think you’re a genius.
For these Snickers Cheesecake Pops, we’ll be using SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis, which have team logos right on the wrappers. What’s really cool is that this recipe will leave you a bunch of extras SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis to put in a bowl for snacking during the big game.
You can find these limited edition SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis at Walmart. I found them in two places in the store — one spot was on the candy aisle, right on the shelf:
First, you’ll need a cheesecake. Remember how I said we weren’t keeping this easy? This is one of the main keys to that. I bought a pre-made New York Style Cheesecake from the bakery section at Walmart. (Yes, you could make your own.)
Here’s my favorite part — throw your cheesecake in a bowl. Crust and all.
Mash up the cheesecake with a fork, paying close attention to breaking up the pieces of the crust. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 1-2 hours. You could leave it in there longer — it can even be done the day before, if you wish.
Open about 40 SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis that have been refrigerated and cut them in quarters. Place quarters in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes and then chop finely (by hand or with food processor). Place the chopped SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis into the freezer until ready to use.
Cover a plate or baking sheet with wax paper and scoop small balls of cheesecake. Roll the balls with your hands so you have a nice, round ball of cheesecake. If the cheesecake gets too warm to handle, place it back in refrigerator for a bit. After you have made all your cheesecake balls, place your plate or tray in the refrigerator.
Melt your chocolate and dip one end of a lollipop stick into the chocolate. Allow excess to fall off and insert the chocolate dipped end of the stick into the middle of one of the cheesecake balls. Repeat with all of the balls and set back in the refrigerator until chocolate is firm.
Each cheesecake pop is dipped into the melted chocolate…
And then dipped, rolled, and sprinkled with the chopped SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis.
After each cheesecake pop is rolled in the chopped SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis, they are placed back on the wax paper covered baking sheet or plate and returned to the refrigerator until the chocolate is firm. Keep them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
I placed my Snickers Cheesecake Pops in small paper baking cups (1.25″ diameter) and set them on a serving tray.Print
