I once bought a mix from a home gourmet company for a cheesecake, and these cheesecake balls were an option. It’s very similar to a cheese ball that you would make and roll in nuts for a large gathering.
Favorite cheesecake filling
Nuts, graham cracker crumbs or chocolate chips to cover
Graham crackers and other “dippers”
Make favorite cheesecake, without crust. Chill. Take chilled cheesecake mix and roll into a 3-5 inch ball. Roll in choice of “covering.” Serve with graham crackers for dipping.
