has anyone used cheesecake to make truffles, like you would use cake for cake balls. Can I just bake cheesecake up chill, scoope out into balls, freeze a little and dip in chocolate. I thought I saw something about this but came up blank when I did search. thanks

I've never done it, but I have a recipe (to try someday) for Cheesecake Truffle Bombs, that's basically a cake ball using cheesecake instead.

Are you willing to share your recipe? I would love to try it.

I make these a lot for work. I just scoop it out and form into a ball and place in the freezer. I then just dip in chocolate and place back on the parchment paper to set up. Sometimes I put them on a stick, other times I'll roll them in toasted coconut, nuts, mini chocolate chips...etc.
Just make sure that they stay nice and cold or they will start to thaw and then fall apart once you dip them. I usually work in smaller batches for this reason.
Very easy to make.

Absolutely...what I have is part of a page from one of those pamphlets that come in the mail, the ones showcasing a specific cookbook that you can order...they usually feature a free recipe or two.

Instead of typing it all out, I did a search and sure enough someone has posted the exact recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/Cheesecake-Truffle-Bombs-for-the-Holidays-334421

This is missing on the recipezaar posting (Step 5), after *Cut cake into 24 or 32 small squares*...it should say - OR scoop out portions of cheesecake using a mini ice-cream scooper.

You're welcome...I scanned it and I've been trying to re-size so I can post the darn pic that's at the top of the recipe:

I make them about 4 times a year. Nothing fancy, just a scoop of cheesecake on a stick, with chocolate on the outside.

There's another thread asking about dipping cake balls in caramel before chocolate.

Mmmm...I bet that would be so good with these cheesecake truffles.

Take it farther - how about caramel apple cheesecake with milk chocolate on the outside - it would be like a gourmet apple!
