I am not going to lie. I spotted a pound cake on sale at my local grocer. Every bone in my body tried to resist, but I just couldn’t. This was a good impulse buy. Plus, if you didn’t know, I have a horrible sweet tooth. It is hard to resist.
But I honestly got home and want to make something different with it. I decided to turn them into Vanilla Cheesecake Cake Pops. My creative side got to work.
Leftover pound cake
If you have a leftover pound cake sitting around the house (Which I doubt) or rather pick one up at the grocery store) here is a great alternative to regular ole pound cake.
For this recipe I used the following helpful kitchen gadgets:
Finally, you are ready to serve these delicious cake pops. You can even get fancy and add a cake pop stick to them as well. Please note that you will need to add the stick in place prior to coating them in white chocolate.
- Make these cake-pops extra special by using other items you may have in your pantry already. Use mini chocolate chips, toasted coconut, chopped nuts or sprinkles or dip the pops into caramel topping.
- Store the finished cheesecake pops in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
- If you do not have a microwave, you can melt chocolate using the double boiler method. It’s the traditional stovetop method that requires a saucepan and a metal or glass bowl.
No-Bake Vanilla Cheesecake Cake Pops Recipe
A fun twist on a traditional dessert. They’re surprisingly easy to make and a lot of fun to eat! I certainly recommend these cake pops if you have a little time on your hands and want to make something special for Valentine’s Day, a baby shower, a birthday party or just because (Like I did!).
- 8 oz vanilla pound cake, cubed (You could use any vanilla cake of your choosing. I like pound cake because it’s dense and rich in flavor.)
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- coconut oil for coating scoop
- 5 ounces candy melts or almond bark
- Line a small pan with parchment paper.
- In your food processor, add cake, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese.
- Pulse until all ingredients are uniformly mixed.
- Coat tablespoon scoop with coconut oil so the dough doesn’t stick.
- Use a tablespoon scoop to portion out the dough.
- Roll gently in your hands to smooth the edges. Makes 16 balls.
- Place the balls in the freezer or refrigerator for 20 minutes.
- Heat the candy melts according to package directions.
- Remove the balls from the freezer, and coat each ball with a light coating of melted candy.
- I use forks to roll the balls in the coating and to then let the extra candy drip off.
- Place coated balls on parchment paper to cool.
- Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.
