I am excited to say that last month I joined the Daring Bakers. Each month they have a baking challenge where everyone on the blogroll gets the same recipe to bake. There are now over 1000 participants. This months challenge was cheesecake pops. This challenge had me doing some new techniques. The cheesecake was baked in a water bath, something I had not done before.
They turned out great, but I think they were on the too big side. The recipe called for 2 ounce balls, which I measured out. I didn't have a scoop big enough, so they kind of turned out lope sided. After I dipped them in the dark chocolate I covered them in sprinkles and toasted coconut. These would be great at a kids party at school. They make a lot. I think I would make them smaller next time. The recipe said it yielded 30 to 40 pops, but I only was able to get 24. Of course, I waited until the last day to make the pops. I had planned on making them last week and taking them to the kids school. I didn't want 30 cheesecake pops hanging around my house. So, my neighbors are getting a treat. Give the recipe a try, its at Deborah's blog Taste and Tell or Elle's blog, Feeding My Enthusiasms . Your family will enjoy.
