I DO BELIEVE MY 2 YEAR OLD HAS SOME EXQUISITE TASTE BUDS! I CAN’T REMEMBER MY 4 YEAR OLD EVER GRABBING FOR A CHOCOLATE COVERED CHEESECAKE POP AND HOLDING ON FOR DEAR LIFE!!!!!!
I ADAPTED JUNIOR’S RECIPE TO MAKE A CRUSTLESS AND GLUTEN FREE VERSION FOR MY POPS!Cream Cheese Filling
4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 2/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
I LIGHTLY BUTTERED AND 8 1/2 INCH SPRINGFORM. WRAP IT IN FOIL AND PLACE IN A LARGER PAN FOR A WATER BATH. ONCE READY TO BAKE, FILL THE PAN WITH HOT WATER SO IT COMES 1 INCH UP THE SIDES OF THE PAN. PREHEAT 350.
BEAT 1 PACK OF CREAM CHEESE WITH 1/3 SUGAR & CORNSTARCH ON LOW 3 MINS. ADD THE REST OF THE CREAM CHEESE AND BLEND. TURN MIXER TO HIGH AND ADD THE REST OF THE SUGAR. ON MEDIUM, ADD THE EGGS, VANILLA AND HEAVY CREAM AND COMBINE JUST UNTIL BLENDED. BAKE 60-75 MINUTES. MINE TOOK 75MINS. COOL AND THEN CHILL FOR HOURS OR OVERNIGHT.
ONCE CHILLED, CUT A SLICE, INSERT A POPSICLE STICK AND FREEZE FOR 30-60 MINUTES. MELT GHIRARDELLI DARK CHOCOLATE AND DIP THE CHEESECAKE. RETURN TO THE FREEZER TO SET. ADD A WHITE CHOCOLATE DRIZLE AND ENJOY!

I too really love the Junior’s Cheesecake recipe. I also wanted to thank you for the wonderful idea of cheesecake on a stick. I used that idea with some of my leftover cheesecake. http://sweetnesshunter.blogspot.com/2012/08/august-crazy-cooking-challenge.html
