Chocolate Dipped Cheesecakes on a Stick Recipe
  • There are several ways to make and prepare the cheesecakes for dipping:
  • The easiest is to buy the pre-cut individual servings. They are 1 inch square pieces of cheesecake available in the frozen food section of many food stores. These are typically packaged in quantities of 12, 24 or 48 individual servings. Another solution is to bake a round, 8 inch square or rectangular cheesecake and cut individual servings 1 inch square out of the larger cheesecake.
  • Small cheesecake baking pans are also available in some large stores with houseware departments. The pans most often contain 12 individual round baking compartments, similar to a muffin pan.
  • Make sure each cheesecake serving has been frozen prior to dipping and insertion of the stick.
  • To prepare for dipping after the individual servings are ready, line an 8 inch square pan or baking sheet with wax paper which will be used as a surface on which each piece is placed after it is dipped in chocolate.
  • The sticks for insertion into the cheesecake slices can be any type of food stick available such as wooden skewers, popsicle sticks, lollipop sticks, or craft sticks. Most sticks are made with a pointed end that will enable the stick to be easily inserted in the mini-cheesecake while it is still frozen.
  • Melt chocolate according to package instructions. If desired, chocolate chips can be used for the dipping chocolate.
  • While still frozen, insert a stick into each piece of cheesecake to be dipped, either through the bottom or the top of the cheesecake. Keep the cheesecake frozen if possible or insert only a few for the first dipping. It is best to keep the cheesecake frozen so the stick remains securely attached to the cheesecake slice as it is dipped and also so the chocolate begins to set up quickly without excessive dripping after being dipped due to the cheesecake being very cold.
  • Dip each frozen serving of cheesecake in melted chocolate, fully covering each piece. It may be necessary to use a spoon or knife to smooth out some of the chocolate after dipping each cheesecake.
  • If desired, the chocolate cheesecakes can be garnished with chopped nuts or brittle chips to enhance the flavor. This should be accomplished before the chocolate hardens. Sprinkle a tablespoon of nuts or chips over the melted chocolate and then place the finished cheesecake the wax paper.
  • Place in freezer until ready to serve and allow 20 minutes to thaw prior to serving. If desired, garnish each cheesecake stick with a colorful ribbon. This will require approximately 12 inches of ribbon to tie around the stick inserted into the cheesecake and to make a bow.
