Mini versions of food are always so much more fun to eat than the full size versions, right? I can’t get enough of mini food especially for parties so I’ve started making mini desserts too. Cheesecake is always a hit with everyone so I decided to turn my regular cheesecake in to mini bite-size cheesecake balls.
These mini cheesecake bites just melt in your mouth. They’re easy to make and look so cute! You also feel less guilty eating them because it’s just a bite after all! Although it’s difficult to stop at one or two or even three! Be warned! Here’s how to make them.
280 gms cream cheese
45 gms icing sugar (add more if you like things sweeter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ vanilla pod seeds
6-8 digestive biscuits
2 tbs honey
You’ll also need a cake pop mould.
Put cream cheese and icing sugar in to a bowl and mix well. Add the vanilla extract and vanilla pod seeds and mix again. Taste the cream cheese mixture and add more icing sugar, if it’s not sweet enough for you.
Using 2 teaspoons (one to scoop and the other to scrape) fill both sides of the cake pop mould right to the top with the cream cheese mixture. Close the mould and place in the freezer for around 1-1.5 hours.
When frozen, gently remove each ball from the cake pop mould. The balls will come out whole if the mould was filled to the top. Remember that these cheese cake balls do melt quite quickly. Dip the balls in to the honey and roll in the biscuit crumbs. The honey makes the biscuit crumbs stick. And eat!
These mini cheesecake bites can be rolled in any crust you like. I’ve used the traditional digestive biscuit this time but you can roll them in crushed nuts, a different kind of biscuit, grated chocolate – anything you can think of!
Do you think you’ll make these mini cheesecake bites? What crust will you give them?
