Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet.
Using a knife, cut the cheesecake into eight wedges. Each cheesecake slice should be inserted with an ice pop stick about 2 1/2 inches deep. On the prepared baking sheet, freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Line a second baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the green candy melting wafers and coconut oil in a microwave-safe tall and wide container. For about one minute 30 seconds, microwave the melting wafers and coconut oil in 30-second intervals, stirring between each.
To make a plain tree:
Coat a frozen cheesecake slice completely using a dipping tool in candy melts. Sprinkle green sprinkles immediately on the prepared baking sheet. Dip the bottom of a gold star dragee using candy melts into the chocolate, then press it against the tree’s top.
To make a tree with white lights:
Sprinkle silver nonpareils over the plain tree following the above directions. Adding a gold star is similar to above. A small round piping tip is used for piping a garland from the tube of white decorating icing on the tree.
To make a tree with snow:
If you would like a plain tree, you can add a few white nonpareils to the green sprinkles described above. Then, add a gold star, as shown above.
To make a tree with rainbow lights:
Add some rainbow nonpareils along with the green sprinkles as described above. A gold star should also be added.
It is recommended that you prepare the pops in advance and freeze them until ready to serve. With a sharp knife, remove any frozen candy melt drips from the sides of the pops. If you let it sit for ten minutes, you can serve it frozen or at room temperature.
Pro Baking Tips For Christmas Tree Cake Cheese Cake Recipe
Room Temperature Ingredients:
It is always best to use room-temperature ingredients, especially cream cheese. As a result, cheesecake is smoother and creamier.
To avoid cracks, bake your cheesecake in a water bath. Heat is evenly distributed and moisture is maintained.
Cooling is Crucial:
As soon as the cheesecake is baked, leave the oven door slightly ajar while it cools. This prevents cracks from forming due to sudden temperature changes.
Patience Pays Off:
If you want the best flavors, refrigerate your cheesecake overnight.
