Cheesecake on a Stick
1 (8-inch) cheesecake
1 (12 oz.) pkg. milk chocolate chips
2 T. vegetable shortening
1/2 C. chopped nuts of your choice or brittle chips
8 Popsicle sticks
Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
Cut cheesecake into 8 equal wedges and 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.
