Cheesecake Lollipops
Total time: 30 minutes plus chilling and freezing
Makes 30 lollipops
1 cup cold low-fat (1%) milk
1 package (11.1 oz.) no-bake cheesecake mix (without crust packet)
1 cup finely crushed chocolate wafers or chocolate sandwich cookies
1 package (12 oz.) chocolate chips
2 tsp. vegetable shortening
Garnishes: sprinkles, crushed nuts, and/or mini chocolate chips

1.       To large bowl, add milk and cheese-cake filling mix. With electric mixer on low speed, beat until combined. Increase speed to medium and beat about 3 minutes, or until thick. Stir in crushed cookies. Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

2.       Line baking sheet with parchment. With moistened hands, roll cheesecake mixture by tablespoonful into 30 balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Insert lollipop stick into each ball; freeze about 2 to 3 hours, or until firm.

3.       In small saucepan on low, melt chocolate chips and shortening stirring until smooth. Spread out garnishes on parchment.

4.       Remove pops from freezer. Carefully dip each pop into melted chocolate, turning to coat, then roll it in your choice of garnishes and return to baking sheet. Freeze at least 2, or until ready to serve.


Frozen Fruit Tart
Total time: 50 minutes plus cooling and freezing
Makes 8 servings
8 whole graham crackers
2 Tbsp. whole natural almonds
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 Tbsp. honey

1 ½ cups mango or passion fruit sorbet
3 ripe nectarines, each pitted and cut into 8 wedges
2 ripe plums, each pitted and cut into 8 wedges

1.       Preheat oven to 350°F. In food processor with knife blade attached, pulse graham crackers until fine crumbs form. Add almonds and sugar; pulse until almonds are finely chopped. In cup, mix oil, honey and 2 teaspoons water; drizzle over crumb mixture. Pulse until crumbs are evenly moistened. Press crumb mixture onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch round tart pan with removable bottom.

2.       Bake tart shell crust 8 to 10 minutes, or until set and lightly browned at edges. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. 

3.       Remove ice cream and sorbet from freezer; let stand at room temperature 10 minutes, or until slightly softened. Spoon ice cream and sorbet alternately into tart shell, pressing with back of spoon to smooth; cover and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight, or until firm.
