LINE baking sheet with wax paper.
REMOVE cheesecake from freezer; thaw for 5 minutes. Cut cheesecake into 22 to 24 small even pieces.
PRESS pieces of cheesecake, including crust, into ice cream scoop. Working quickly, shape into 1 1/2-inch balls. Press one lollipop stick into each cheesecake ball. Place on prepared baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
MICROWAVE white morsels and shortening in dry, medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 45 seconds; STIR. If needed, microwave at additional 15-second intervals, stirring vigorously after each interval until morsels are melted.
DIP frozen cheesecake pops into melted morsels; shaking off excess and place on prepared baking sheet.
FOR DOUBLE DIPPED POPS:
MICROWAVE semi-sweet morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH power for 30 seconds; STIR. If needed, microwave at additional 15-second intervals, stirring vigorously after each interval until morsels are melted. Dip bottom of pop into melted chocolate and immediately decorate with colored sprinkles or sugars.
FOR A FANCY DRIZZLE:
MICROWAVE semi-sweet chocolate morsels in small, heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH power for 30 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10-to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over dipped pop.
FREEZE until ready to serve. Allow to soften for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
• Cheesecake balls do not have to look “pretty” before they are dipped in chocolate. Crust is included in cheesecake ball. This all gets covered in a coating of chocolate. It may be a little messy, but everything works out when it is covered in chocolate!
• NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels can be substituted for NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels.
