This gourmet snack idea won’t break the bank and is sure to impress your family. A fun take on cheesecake, it combines toffee, sweet and salty kettlecorn popcorn and chocolate for an easy-to-eat dessert. You still get the rich and creamy texture like you would from a cheesecake but with an added crunch from the popcorn.

Popcorn-Coated Cheesecake on a Stick:
Prep time: 20 minutes
Serves: 8

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices large prepared frozen cheesecake
  • 1 bag (220 g) Orville Redenbacher sweet and salty ready-to-eat kettlecorn, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sponge toffee pieces
  • 1 lb (450 g) dark chocolate, melted

Directions:

  1. Skewer widest end of each cheesecake slice with an ice pop or wooden craft stick; freeze until firm.
  2. In shallow dish, stir together kettle corn and sponge toffee. Place melted chocolate in bowl; dip each cheesecake slice into melted chocolate, shaking any excess chocolate back into bowl. Coat in popcorn mixture.
  3. Transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze for about 10 minutes or until chocolate hardens.
