Recipe type: Dessert, Gluten-Free, Low-carb
Yield: 9 cheesecake balls
Ingredients
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Toppings:
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, using an electric hand mixer, whisk the cream cheese, honey and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Place the mixture in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden. You want the mixture hard enough that you can work with it like it was dough.
  3. With clean hands, pinch a generous tablespoon of mixture per cheesecake ball. Roll the mixture in your hands to shape into a ball.
  4. Place the toppings in shallow bowls. Roll the cheesecake balls in the toppings. You’ll only use about 2 tablespoons of each topping, but you need more of it to properly dredge the cheesecake balls.
  5. Place the cheesecake balls in an airtight container and refrigerate for 30 minutes, to allow them to set and re-harden before serving.
  6. Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container. Remove from fridge 10 minutes before serving.
