Filling:

  • 3 8oz softened cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla or banana extract

To make cheesecake pops:  Freeze cheesecake in pan till very cold but not set.  Remove, cut each one into 5 pieces and insert a popsicle stick in the end of each.  Freeze till firm.  Remove and dip in chocolate of choice – refrigerate until set.
