Everything is Better on a Stick!

Cheesecake Pops

So I'm on this diet lifestyle change.. I recently hit 40 and well.. I think it's starting to hit me that I'm no longer on the uphill climb, but rather on my way downhill. Not that it's a bad thing, just makes me realize that if I don't really get serious, the next 40 years are going to be miserable. I don't like miserable. Yanno?

The diet lifestyle change has been going okay.. lil iffy in spots, but rather well - surprisingly well in other areas. Such as cutting out all sugar. I KNOW. I can't believe I'm saying this let alone living it. But it's a true story.. no sugar, no chocolate.. and.. okay well.. some of you might want to look away for a minute, what I'm about to say next is not going to be pretty.
 
 
 

No butter.

***crickets***
 
 

Tell me. I've most assuredly lost my everfluffin' mind.

I'm now all about low-fat cheeses and reduced fat mayo, olive and canola oil in place of my beloved butter.. fish and ground turkey - salads and fresh fruit.. dear sweet jebus somebody hold me.

Cheesecake Pops

So knowing myself as well as I do, I knew there'd be no fakkin way I could make this challenge without inhaling half of it. I mean c'mon.. it's cheesecake on a freakin' stick. Covered in chocolate. It's Brilliance in the form of a lollipop is what it is. I'm weak and only human.. and as a co-founder of this amazing group, well I knew I had to take one for the team and get all of my cream cheese bricks and chopped chocolates in a row, if yanno what I mean. And I think that you do.

I threw on an apron so that my thighs, hips and ass wouldn't see what I was about to do and got to it. This started as a New York style cheesecake.. no crust. It's just creamy heavenly cheesecake baked until just set - frankly, one of THE BEST cheesecakes I've ever had. And the recipe was really easy.. this is a time consuming and kinda messy recipe, but all in all, no problems and I really enjoyed making them.

Cheesecake Pops

I kept 90% of them at 2 ounces.. but after counting 35 of them and still having a boatload of cheesecake left, I took out my big star cookie cutter and made a few big whammer jammers.. those I used for quality control. Because our Daring Bakers mean the world to me and I'd do anything to protect them, including eating a giant star shaped cheesecake lollipop double dipped in first peanut butter coating and then dark chocolate to make sure they were NOT poisonous. Well I am here today to tell my story, so I guess we can all assume the cheesecake is safe for consumption! (Actually, they are more than just safe... they are BIG DEE - lil licious) :D

These cute lollies were brought to our attention by two of the sweetest and most kind hearted women that I've had the pleasure of meeting, Elle from Feeding My Enthusiasms and Deborah of Taste and Tell. Excellent choice, gals! Thank you so much! Elle and Deborah found the recipe in Jill O'Connor's Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey: Desserts for the Serious Sweet Tooth. By this recipe alone, this book has got to be good!

Cheesecake Pops

Ya'll must give the blogroll a good clickin' this month, the creativity used in making these pops - both in flavoring and decorating - is going to blow ya'll away!

Bake on Daring Bakers! Bake on! :D

I cracked up at your post- pretty much going through the same thing a... -er- lifesyle change. but sometimes moderation in moderation. I halved the recipe but I tasted the cheesecake and it was good! I am bravely giving my pops away today so that my HB&A don't become the size of a small planet!

Anonymous Robin said ... (4/27/2008 10:49 AM) : 

No butter? I think I just had a heart-attack when you said that (or maybe it's from all the butter I eat!)

Good for you for changing your, ahem, lifestyle! And glad you let loose and had some cheesecake!!!

 

Blogger BC said ... (4/27/2008 10:49 AM) : 

There's no way I'd give up butter. If I die of a heart attack, I want to have earned it!

I really earned it this month.

Thanks for looking out for all of us crazy DBs and sampling to make sure we weren't all going to poison ourselves! ha ha ha

Your pops turned out great!

 

Blogger Sheltie Girl said ... (4/27/2008 11:47 AM) : 

Ooooohhhhh! Those beautiful whammer jammers...all that luscious cheesecake on a stick. For my dairy version I used both cream cheese and Neufchatel. I actually like the flavor better and Neufchatel is lower fat than cream cheese.

Good luck with your dietary changes...sometimes they can make you feel a whole lot better.

Ooops. I recently turned 41and it never occurred to me to make kitchen sacrifices such as butter, sugar, etc. I'm blocking my ears oh brave one! Loved your stars, and your flavorings. Thanks for helping make 1000+ households a little heavier, but happier!

 

Blogger pixie said ... (4/27/2008 12:19 PM) : 

i wanted to use low fat cream cheese but it's cheesecake right? Had to go all the way with the sin! Love your peanut butter coating!

 

Blogger jasmine said ... (4/27/2008 12:24 PM) : 

You're denying yourself butter? Not just cutting down, but denying yourself butter? We are talking about real butter and not margarine or any of those oleos, right?

My brain is still a-boggled.

I like how happy and festive your lollies look!

No butter????

I need that lifestyle change too. Your pops are so festive and fun.Really spectacular. You got skillz!

 

Blogger Julie said ... (4/27/2008 1:03 PM) : 

I'm right there with ya with the lifestyle changes. I made a half batch and was actually kinda bummed to see how many it made (more than expected). Truck along, though--DB is only once a month, and unless our health depends on absolutes, an occasional indulgence might not hurt. =) Your pops are beautiful! I love the variety of shapes and sizes. Just like people. Ahhhh. ;)

Lis, those are the dang cutest pops. I'm loving the colors against that dark chocolate. NICE. And as far as no buttah goes...I'm weeping for you girl, at the same time I'm screaming w00t! Party on to better health. I'm with yah. Mwah.

I LOVE the colors! And I know all about cutting back. I'm spending an inordinate amount of time at the gym lately. I did use low fat cream cheese. Thank heavens.

 

Anonymous Dana McCauley said ... (4/27/2008 2:22 PM) : 

I too have been working toward the diet- er, I mean lifestyle change since i turned 40 but, as one of my friends says "everything in moderation including moderation." So, i used the full fat stuff and dove right in.

That said, cheesecakes isn't my weakness so I was able to exercise a bit of control!

Nice work on the big-ass stars.

As for the "lifestyle" change- you go girl. But everyone need some cheesecake every once in a while. otherwise you could go mad and kill somebody.

Sometimes one must say to Hell with the thighs, hips an' ass!! Taking one for the team an' all, I am sure they understand.
Your first 90% look fab but it's the last 10% I think are most appropriate coz you is a...

Boo on your lifestyle change...no butter or sugar. Ugh. You should look into Intuative Eating. Lose weight and still eat real food.
And yes, everything is better on a stick.

Good luck with the lifestyle change, Lis. At 44, I can tell you that it gets a little harder every year so you may as well tackle it now. Be strong (but not so strong that you don't have any fun!)

Thanks for all you do for the DB gang.

Lis, I'm with you on the lifestyle change, but it's sooooo hard! Especially with challenges like this! Not to mention, having access to to wonderful food blogs all over the world, with such tempting photos and recipes!! I like what Giada does, she has a VERY small plate of what ever she wants. Moderation is the key, calories do count. In saying this, one of your small and pretty pops would be acceptable!! :D

Your pops are absolutely perfect- -love the stars! Know whatcha mean about the lifestyle change. Type II diabetes diagnosis did that for me. I cut out what I can and cut back the rest. This recipe worked marvelously with low-fat cream cheese. And I ate a little instead of a lot.

Ooo I get to give comment #100. I feel so special. Your pops turned out beautiful (far more beautiful than my monstrocities) and your blog had me in stitches. Especially the part about shielding your thighs and butt from what was about to take place in the kitchen. I will definately be checking out your blog from now on.

Blogger african vanielje said ... (5/14/2008 11:53 AM) : 

Not only was starting the DBers a VERY sensible thing to do, but so was temporarily suspending your new lifestyle choice. I mean, you did it for us, and TOTAL discipline and dedication is kinda scary, even in people you know and love. Take it from me, temporary insanity is what gets me through the day and saves the permanent sanity required for ongoing living.

Gosh you are courageous and those popsicles look amazing. I need to become more daring, only my oven (hm, broiler) won't follow. Damn!
