    Tips:

    • Cheesecake balls do not have to look “pretty”before they are dipped in chocolate. Crust is included in cheesecakeball. This all gets covered in a coating of chocolate. It maybe a little messy, but everything works out when it is coveredin chocolate!
    • For a richer chocolate flavor, substitutethree 4-ounce bars NESTL ® TOLL HOUSE® CHOCOLATIER62% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chocolate, broken intopieces, for the semi-sweet or milk chocolate morsels.

    So, after the balls became firm, I dipped one end of my lollipop stick in some of the melted candy coating and then inserted it into the cheesecake ball. I immediately dunked the pop in a deep bowl of melted candy coating and then sprinkled to decorate. Each one was then placed in a styrofoam block to completely dry. Then, they went in the refrigerator to await their fate. Yum! My parents are visiting and I needed a dessert idea. You ve just given it to me! Gorgeous pics as always. Ladybug, how about a thin frosting or glaze that will dry hard instead of chocolate?
