Personalized Pops

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    This was pretty expensive challenge in the cheesecake alone. But you did a wonderful job.

  15. Susan says:

    I never thought of cheesecake for breakfast before, but why not? Your pops are very cute! Next time I will definitely scale the recipe down too, because I think I’m in the “just one more” camp.

  16. Bellini Valli says:

    What a beautiful job you did in personalizing Your pops Gretchen:D

  17. MyKitchenInHalfCups says:

    Gretchen yours are wonderful, pretty pretty.Um “personal portion makes them easier to have self control or easier to eat “just one more!” sorry you brought that last part up ;))These are just fun and great to eat.

  18. jasmine says:

    Yours are so festive looking!j

  19. Amy says:

    So pretty, Gretchen! I love the top picture, and the exclamation point: “Pops!” That’s exactly how I thought of these…not “cheesecake pops”, but “cheesecake pops!!!” Adorable.

  20. Nemmie says:

    Beautiful! They are making me crave them again. I made the full batch, but luckily had family visiting so I pushed all the pops on them :)

  25. Half Baked says:

    Pretty Pops! Love the colors. Nice job on this challenge!

  26. Jaime says:

    i love the color on yours! so bright and beautiful! i think at 2 ounces, they were just the perfect serving size…but i can see how if you made them a little smaller, you’d want to go back for “just one more” :)

  27. Jerry says:

    I cut the recipe too! Glad they came out!

  28. Dana McCauley says:

    Good work on scaling the recipe so successfully – that is a difficult ratio to use when estimating baking time.

  29. Shandy says:

    Your cheesecake pops are so cute! I love the color. This cheesecake recipe was so creamy and good that my family had a hard time keeping out of the cheesecake before I could get them into little balls =D

    Cute, cute, cute!

  31. Andrea says:

    Your pops look so cute! Nicely done!

  32. Dagmar - A Cat in the Kitchen says:

    Your pops are so pretty! Only making 1/5 of the recipe sounds like a great idea (I just halfed it).

  33. Jen Yu says:

    Ah, these look terrific. I totally did the same thing (made 1/5). I can’t imagine the mess in my house had I done a full recipe ;)

  34. Julia says:

    Wow, your pops look as though the came directly from the pages of the book. They are so pretty! Thank you for taking the time to post the truncated version of the recipe. That will save me a lot of time in the future as I doubt I’ll ever need a recipe that large again.

  72. Christina says:

    Great job! I never thought of using straws for the holders!I think I prefer the individual portions. Even 2-3 don’t make up a slice. And one skewer made for the perfect after-breakfast treat!Christina ~ She Runs, She Eats
