This is an old recipe that was begging for a photo update. While pinterest is filled with gorgeous photos of cheesecake popsicles, this little blog was cranking them out in 2011--pre-pinterest. I was also cranking out awful food photography, but that's besides the point today. I updated the post to include my hunky husband with his buff, tattooed arms in the photos. He was so cranky about being the hand model for these creamy popsicles, but after tasting one, he was suddenly in a better mood. Sometimes I forget I've been baking for this blog longer than I've known him. He's now adamant that cheesecake tastes best frozen.
Have you had my Cheesecake Milkshakes yet?
So, frozen cheesecake batter. Dipped in chocolate. Rolled in crushed graham crackers. That's what I've got going on today. You can whip together the cheesecake batter in a quick 5 minutes, pour into molds, and then freeze. You do the chocolate and graham dunk after freezing. After the dunk, you can definitely re-freeze and serve later, if needed.

One fun little update to this recipe since 2011 is the usage of coconut oil. If you melt coconut oil into chocolate, it creates a hard chocolate shell that is ever-so fun to bite into. Try it!

Have you found anything that holds the weight of the popsicle but is not a wood popsicle stick? (major TWSS moment coming up, but...) I hate the feeling of the wood stick in my mouth.
Don't use a stick, place the mixture in a zip lock snack size bag only the size of a pop cycle in plastic or small plastic container and eat with a spoon.
Oh My Gosh! I am so happy to find out that I am not the only one who is completely squicked out by the wooden spoon/stick in my mouth!!! ????

Starting trends! I've had a popsicle mold in my stash for over a year now, and I still haven't used it. And now that it's one million degrees out day-to-day, it's pretty much required. These look so refreshing and a perfect way to beat the heat.

After experiencing frozen cheesecake at the fair, I have to agree with your husband. And I LOVE the chocolate shell! Perfection!

These popsicles look amazing and I love how you snuck the crust element in there with the graham cracker crumbs!

Your hubby makes a great hand model! Mine does not enjoy photos much either - but I like the idea of bribing with popsicles. I'll have to try that one!
