Chocolate chip cheesecake balls

Chocolate chip cheesecake balls

I can't even begin to understand people who aren't cheesecake fans. What's not to love? Creamy, sugary cream cheese and cake — it doesn't get much better than that! Making it, however, is a different story. Springform pans, cracks down the middle, overflow in the oven... Who needs that kind of hassle?

Chocolate chip cheesecake balls

These no-bake chocolate chip cheesecake balls are the answer — all the creamy goodness of the cake in a bite-size no-bake portion. They keep really well in the freezer too, so you can pop one when you're in a pinch for a sweet treat.

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Chocolate cookies, crushed for rolling (optional)

  2. Fold in the chocolate chips, and freeze the batter for at least 1 hour.
  3. In a small bowl, place the crushed cookies.
  4. Using your hands, roll the batter into balls of about 1 tablespoon in size, and then coat them in the crushed cookies. Place the balls on a plate, and keep them refrigerated until you're ready to serve them.
