Why I Love This Recipe
There are times when just a taste of something is all you crave. This is how I came up with this recipe. When I am entertaining, I never want my guests to go home hungry. Sometimes I make a few different desserts but I want to make the last bite memorable. This is when the cheesecake lollipops are perfect.
I let them stay at room temperature about 30 minutes or more before serving. The lollipops will be creamy and delicious.
