Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

White Chocolate covered Strawberry Cheesecake Bites - SimplyGloria.com #cheesecake #dessert

When you’ve had a slice of your favorite cheesecake, don’t you just want to have another?

These little Strawberry Cheesecake Bites are just the perfect size!  And having them dipped in white chocolate is even an extra treat!

The only ingredients you need for this recipe is your favorite cheesecake and 8 ounces of white chocolate.

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

You can make your own cheesecake from scratch…which I love to do!  But, today I needed my cheesecake fix right away!

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites covered in White Chocolate

Use a small cookie scoop.  And start scooping out the cheesecake– with the graham cracker crust, of course!  Save a few of the crumbles for later…about 2 tablespoons.

Put the scoops onto parchment or wax paper.  Just stick them straight into the freezer for about 20 to 30 minutes covered with plastic wrap.  (You could even leave them in longer, in case you get busy.)

While they are in the freezer, start to melt your chocolate over a double boil.  (Double Boil:  One small pan filled with a small amount of water in it.  A large glass bowl with the chocolate in it, sitting on top of the pan.  Do not let the boiling water touch the bottom of the bowl.)

Take the cheesecake scoops out of freezer and start forming into smooth round balls between your palms.  The heat of your hands will warm the cheesecake up a bit.  So you may need to put back into freezer if they are too soft.

Dip your fork into the melted white chocolate, then place a cheesecake scoop on top of the fork.  Dip into the chocolate and shake off the excess chocolate.  Put back onto the paper and immediately sprinkle the graham cracker crust on top.  Repeat with all the others.  *Note:  because the cheesecake scoops are still cold from the freezer– your chocolate may need to be reheated a bit more with the pan of hot water, as you continue the process.

These little delectable treats are ready to enjoy as soon as the chocolate is set up.  (It sets up fast!)  So, if you’re like me– I was already “testing” one when the 2nd one was being dipped!

Enjoy, my friends!

      Thanks so much, Averie! So, funny…but, this is the only way I’ll eat strawberries on my cheesecake– if they’re swirled up in with it! (=

      These little bites are very tempting to just gobble the whole plate! This is why I have to share them…or I’ll nibble on them one…by one! Thanks, Ashley!

    It is a little different than the usual “have a slice of cheesecake” dessert…they’re perfect to bring to parties! And you’re so sweet, Amy…blog hugs! Hope you’re having a fun friday!

    What a fantastic idea Gloria!!! I’m already imagining lots of variations with different cheesecakes (my family’s favourite is a lemon baked cheesecake I make… would be gorgeous as a lemon and white chocolate bite version with candied lemon rind as a ‘garnish’. Mmmm). It’s kinda like a super amped up delicious better-than-a-truffle dessert. I echo the ‘genius’ comments! xx

    These look absolutely sinful! Gosh, I want one now! Pinning!
    Also, Gloria, can you tell me how you make your recipe with the print button at the bottom of the post? I really would like to try that for my recipes. Thanks you!

    • says

      Thank you for the Pin action Karen! They’re the perfect treat to make this summer because there’s no oven use.
      I use the recipe plugin for WordPress, (http://www.easyrecipeplugin.com/) But noticed you have a different format than wordpress. I wish I could be more of help. I’ve done everything on here behind the dashboard…so any other questions, feel free to ask me, Karen. (=

    Ok I couldn’t find a cheesecake and don’t have time to make one from scratch. Could I just add cheesecake filling, strawberry topping and graham crackers in a bowl and mix th up??

    • says

      That sounds good! I’d mix up the cheesecake filling and swirl it with the strawberry topping. Let it chill. Roll into balls. And chill again or put in freezer for a few minutes. Then roll them into the graham crackers. Put back into the fridge or freezer. Then dip into the white chocolate. Let me know how they turned out, Trey! Thanks for asking me this great question! Have a great day!

      • Trey says

        They were awesome! Everyone loved them and they tasted just like a strawberry cheescake. The only mistake I made was not having time to freeze the fillings so I could have nice and perfect balls. :-/

        • says

          Yay!! But just remember, the best thing about doing and making things homemade…are not always perfect. And that is why homemade is the best! Trey have a great weekend coming up!

    • says

      Yes, they should be refrigerated. But can be left out to room temperature when snacking on. Thank you Deanna, for coming over to ask your question…and feel free to ask any other questions you may have! Have a fabulous Monday! (=

    Ummm- ok I feel stupid. What do you mean “dip fork in chocolate/place cheesecake on top of choc covered fork????

    • says

      Don’t feel silly…when you dip your fork in the melted chocolate first, and then set the cheesecake bite on top of the fork– it makes it so the bottom of the cheesecake is already covered with chocolate. It just makes it a bit easier so you are not swirling the cheesecake all in the melted chocolate. Thank you for asking Karen! Have a great weekend coming up! (=

    Hi, these cheesecake bites look wonderful. Would you please send me a good cheesecake recipe. Ashamed to say, I have actually never made one. I would really appreciate your help!!! :)

    • says

      I would love to share with you my (most) favorite homemade cheesecake recipe…it’s from Amanda on her blog: http://iambaker.net/double-decker-cheesecake/
      I’ve made a lot of baked cheesecakes…and this one is the most successful one. The recipe is easy to follow as well. It says double decker, but I just make the filling and put it all in a spring form pan over the crust. You’ll be amazed how easy it really is to make cheesecake at home!
      Thank you Jackie! Hope you have a great weekend coming up!

      Jolie,freezing these bites is a perfect way to have them (partially) done ahead of time. When you scoop and put in freezer to set up firmness, then form in more perfect rounded balls…put back into freezer to become more firm on a flat tray. (I used a small cutting board.) Once they are completely frozen, put into an airtight container or bag. Can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. I found that if you put the chocolate on before freezing for a long time like this…it cracks. It’s best to do the chocolate step the day of serving. (Or store in the refrigerator.)
      Thank you for coming over to leave such a sweet comment, Jolie! Have a great rest of the week! (=

      Larel, you’ll be able to find already prepared cheesecake in the refrigerated/freezer section by the bakery in the grocery store. Or, just in the freezer section in the middle of the store. Thanks for stopping by! (=

    This recipe is killing me! Just want to know if I can make this using a No BAKE cheesecake? or will it only work with a baked one?

    The furniture sofa can be transformed into a bed during night time or when necessities arise.
    This is especially important with imported pieces of furniture.
