DSC_0021I used a combination of chocolate, caramel, fruit and butterscotch chips for these “boules” [French for balls]

DSC_0009I cut the thawed cheesecake into 1/4s

DSC_0010For the first version, crumble the quarter cake into a bowl


Gently form it into balls, crust and all

DSC_0015Put them on a tray in the freezer while you work on the rest

DSC_0012For the second version, cut the crust off

DSC_0014and then mix the cheesecake with butterscotch chips and form into balls

DSC_0016I used a mini scoop, I highly recommend getting one, they are incredibly handy


Now make some more plain cheesecake balls and put them in the freezer for 15-30 minutes

DSC_0024Give them a fast bath in melted white chocolate or Candy Quik and top with a fresh raspberry

Use the remaining quarter of cheesecake to fill the strawberry tulips.  Cut a X from the tip of the berry stopping just before the stem end and gently open berry and place cheesecake ball inside

Petite Cheesecake Boules

  • Servings: 40-50 bite sized cheesecake balls
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print

1 cheesecake

butterscotch chips

chocolate sauce

caramel sauce

fresh raspberries

fresh strawberries

coarse sea salt

white chocolate or melting chocolate

Cut cheesecake into 1/4s.

Plain Cheesecake Boules:

Crumble cake into a mixing bowl, crust and all.  Mix with your hands and roll or scoop into bite size balls.  Chill. Makes 12-14

White Chocolate Raspberry Boules:

Cut as much crust as possible from cheesecake and form the cake into balls.  Chill.  Melt chocolate according to package directions and quickly dip balls into melted candy and place on cold metal pan.  Top with a fresh raspberry and place it the refrigerator to set.  Makes 10-12

Butterscotch Cheesecake Boules:

Cut crust away from cheesecake if desired.  Mix cake and butterscotch chips in a bowl and roll or scoop into bite size balls.  Place in refrigerator to chill.  Makes 10-14 boules

Salted Caramel Cheesecake Boules:

Prepare Plain Boules, or Boules without crust, and refrigerate.  To serve place each boule on a serving spoon or small ramekin and drizzle caramel sauce over boule and top with a few pieces of coarse finishing salt, a little goes a long way.

1/4 of a Sara Lee cheesecake will yield 10-14 balls, depending on the size of the balls, and whether the crust is used.  Results will vary depending on size and type of cheesecake used.  This recipe is simply a guide line.

There’s no guilt involved with eating just one little boule, and there is something about an elegant presentation that leaves you satisfied with less~
