Oreo Cheescake Popsicles
For some reason, I've had in my head for a while that I need to make a frozen treat combining Oreos and cheesecake. I can't quite explain it. I'm not an avid consumer of either. The craving proved so strong, I broke down and bought a popsicle mold specifically to test out this recipe. I'm very happy I did. These popsicles are fantastic. They are, quite literally, frozen Oreo cheesecake on a stick. How can that ever be bad?
If there's one downside it's that these popsicles have a limit to how hard they'll freeze, which means they won't take perfect shape to the mold. So you won't get a picture-perfect pop. But who cares? Did I mention these are made of frozen Oreo cheesecake?
OREO CHEESECAKE POPSICLES
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, at room temperature
1 c. powdered sugar
2 c. heavy cream
10 Oreo cookies, chopped
1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer until smooth. Mixing on low speed, pour in the heavy cream. The goal here is not to whip the cream, so take care not to over-mix. Fold in the chopped Oreo cookies.
2. Pour batter into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. Makes 10 standard sized popsicles.
