Cheesecake on a Stick
1 eight-inch cheesecake
1 pkg. (12 oz.) milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1/2 cup chopped nuts or brittle chips
8 popsicle sticks
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Cut cheesecake into 8 equal wedges. Make a 1/4-inch horizontal slit in the center back of the crust of each slice of cheesecake with the tip of a knife. Insert a wooden craft stick through the slit, halfway into each slice. Place the slices on the baking sheet, cover, and freeze overnight.
Melt the chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and spoon over the cheesecake slices, coating completely and allowing the excess chocolate to drip back into the saucepan. Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle 1 tablespoon nuts over the top of each and return to the baking sheet; freeze for 1 hour, or until the chocolate and cheesecake are frozen.
