One great new twist of a classic and beloved food is cheesecake on a stick. Cheesecake is a treat that has been delighting people since the times of ancient Greece, where it was created. Nowadays, home cooks, bloggers, and regular people all like the luscious chocolate coating and the many possibilities for creative toppings.
Cheesecake on a Stick
A big factor when it comes to making cheesecake on a stick is the temperature. Keeping the cheesecake pieces frozen is what makes the whole thing work, so it is essential. Those who make their cheesecake from scratch should slice it into portions and freeze them for several hours to make separate pieces that can be held on a stick.
There is also the alternative of pre-made frozen cheesecake for people who want to save some time. However, cutting it may be a bit tricky, so heating the cutting knife with hot water can be done for smooth and easy slicing.
There Are Many Cheesecake Options
There is also the stick. There are three main options here, including regular popsicle sticks, bamboo sticks with a pointed end, and wooden semi-point skewers. As for the toppings, melted chocolate with coconut oil is a sure path to success.
Now that the cheesecake is covered with chocolate and each slice has its stick, it’s time to apply creative toppings to it. These can range from crushed nuts like pecans or hazelnuts to creamy bits and pieces of biscuits. Playing with the flavors and textures is a must with this recipe, but one can also play with the shapes that this desert allows. You can pick from traditional triangular slices to round and square pieces. The possibilities are endless!
- 1 Wooden Craft Stick
- 1 Slice of Frozen Plain Cheesecake
Insert a stick about one-third of the way into the wide end of the slice and use any topping you may desire. Freeze or refrigerate until the dessert is ready to serve.
- 2 Marshmallows
- 1 Tablespoon of Yellow Decorating Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons of White Chocolate Chips
- 1 Teaspoon of Coconut Oil
- 5 Orange Mini M&M’s
To create the petals, use scissors to snip corners from the marshmallows, and then dip the cut sides into sugar. Next, melt chocolate chips with some oil and set aside one teaspoon of the mixture. Spread the remaining chocolate mixture over a slice of cheesecake. Now, arrange the marshmallow petals into a flower shape over the cake and attach them with small dots of the reserved chocolate. Finally, place M&M’s in the center of the flower using the melted chocolate as an adhesive.
