No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pops

Peanut butter cheesecake batter is dipped into melted chocolates, creating these simple treats, perfect for Halloween!






This is Halloween, this is Halloween.... I made these cute little cheesecake pops a few years back, when I hosted a Monster High party, for my daughter and her friends.

I have to tell you that these pops were a total hit. The kids (and moms alike) LOVED how cute they were and how delicious they tasted. By the end of the party, I think there was only 2 or so left. Just enough for my son to try one. I decided to decorate my pops as pumpkins and mummies, because I had some fun black/orange, and black/white, paper straws that I had bought over the summer. 

This recipe could not be easier. 3 ingredients, plus your different colours of melting chocolate. I think the hardest and most frustrating part was that as the pops sat, after being dipped, some started to crack. Not sure why. I simply piped a small amount of chocolate on the cracks and went on with my work. Queenie watched in anticipation as I piped on jack-o-lantern faces and mummy bandages. So easy to make, so delicious and perfect for any occasion.





{No Bake} Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pops


1 8oz block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1/4 C powdered sugar
1 C orange molding chocolate wafers
1 C white molding chocolate wafers
1/4 C green molding chocolate wafers
1/4 C black molding chocolate wafers
red chocolate covered chocolate chips (or colour of choice)
black and white/black and orange paper straws

In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar until smooth and fully combined. 

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop equal amounts of cheesecake dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Gently roll each scoop of dough into a ball and insert a straw into the center of each ball. Place in freezer for no less than 1 hr.

Heat the orange and white molding chocolate wafers, in two separate microwavable bowls (I used coffee mugs); using 30 second intervals, until melted.

Take frozen cheesecake bites and dip half into the melted white chocolate and the other half into the melted orange chocolate; gently shaking off the excess chocolate. Return to the parchment lined baking sheet. Once all dipped, return to freezer to set; about 5 minutes. 

Pour any remaining melted white chocolate into a disposable piping bag, or zip top bag. Take the white chocolate dipped cheesecake pops from the freezer and using remaining white chocolate, pipe lines to resemble mummy bandages. Add eyes using a dab of melted chocolate and the red candy coated chocolate chips. Return to the freezer to set.

Meanwhile, heat the green and black molding chocolate wafers, in two separate microwavable bowls; using 30 second intervals, until melted. Pour each bowl of melted chocolate into a disposable piping bag, or zip top bag. Snip the tiniest of holes at the end of each piping bag. 

For the stem, pipe green melted chocolate around the stick, at the top of the orange cheesecake pops. Using the black melted chocolate, pipe jack-o-lantern faces on one side of the pops. Return to the freezer to set.

In a small bowl, combine any remaining melted white chocolate, with remaining melted black chocolate, to make a grey colour. Pour the grey chocolate into a zip top bag and snip the tiniest of holes in one end. Pipe a mouth onto the mummy cheesecake pops.

Keep pops in freezer until ready to serve.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
