This month's challenge is brought to you by Elle, Deborah and the letter P. P as in precious. As in just too, too precious. Oh and T, for tedious. Seriously. Now you guys know I dig cute food, but this was a bit much, even for me. Of course prior to actually making these things this would have been brought to you by the letters E and C. As in exciting and clever. But that was then.
They are kinda cute though aren't they? I had to decorate them with some buttercream. There was NO butter in this recipe! I know, I know!
This is what happened when I got bored with the buttercream. And when one fell off the stick. And into my mouth.
Did I mention how many of these things there were? We were supposed to make 2 ounce sized pops. I'm not sure if that's weight ounces or volume ounces but either way my big scoop made them way too freakin' big. They just popped right off the sticks. So these are a little smaller, about golf ball sized. And there are lots of them. Lots and lots and lots. And another full pan still in the fridge. Though as the boy reminded me, "having lots of cheesecake isn't really a bad thing". Smart boy that one. Taught him everything he knows.
Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad recipe. I'm just not sure that taking a perfectly good cheese cake and mushing it into balls and impaling it on a stick and them covering it in chocolate really adds anything to the whole cheesecake eating experience. You have a cheesecake, you have a spoon. End of story, right?
I haven't looked at any of the other DB's creations, but past experience tells me there will be some mighty fine lookin' cheesecake pops out there. Check them out here at the Daring Bakers Blogroll.
