3 Tasty Ways to Use Leftover Cheesecake, Bronx, New York

When dining out at an Italian restaurant or ordering delivery or carryout, the meal won’t be complete until you pick a dessert. If you opt for velvety, creamy cheesecake, you might not have room in your stomach to finish the treat during your meal. To make sure the food doesn’t go to waste, here are a few interesting ways to give cheesecake leftovers a second life.    

3 Creative Recipes for Leftover Cheesecake

1. Cake Pops

If you have one or two slices of cheesecake, dividing it into bite-size sections will provide fun snacks for the entire family. Similar to cake pops, you can dip the cheesecake in sprinkles, chocolate chips, syrup, and other toppings to add to its flavor profile. Just make sure to add the sticks first to prevent sticky fingers and contain the mess. Chill the pops in the freezer to make the cream cheese firm and help the toppings stick. 

2. Milkshakes

For a frozen treat, combine the cake with graham crackers, ice, and milk and mix in a blender. If you have plain cheesecake, you can add blueberries or strawberries for color and to add tart notes to the taste. You can also add liqueurs or spirits to add a kick to the frothy milkshake. 

3. Empanadas

If you enjoy savory empanadas, use cheesecake for a sweet take on the Latin American appetizer. You can fold cheesecake and strawberries in refrigerated pie crust. Apply an egg wash and heat in the oven until the crust is golden brown. The cheesecake will become warm and gooey as it bakes. You can drizzle chocolate sauce on top to create a restaurant-quality dessert.
