    Just found your site through Pinterest. Those Cheesecake bites look absolutely yummy.
    Where I live you can´t get cool whip. Will ordinary whipped cream work as well?

      Who needs Cool Whip? Chemically tasting with a greasy texture, I substitute real whipped cream in every recipe with great results.

      Hi Karen
      I’ve honestly never tried this with strawberries, It seems as an interesting idea and I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!

    The cheesecake mixture taste really good! But I’m not too sure what happened, I can’t seem to form them into balls without it getting all over my hands and not keeping form. I froze the cream cheese mixture over night, even, because it never firmed up when I tried a couple times prior (each time I waited 2 hours with them in freezer). I followed the recipe exactly, so I have no idea what’s up. I’ll probably just make it into a desert, put the bowl with mixture in fridge and mix in with the graham cracker crumbs. It taste good! I just don’t know why they won’t form into balls without being mush. Its very similar to trying to shape ice cream into balls. It melts so quickly and at its firmest it was still very difficult because it being frozen separates a lot easier and by the time you get it formed, its melted like it was just refrigerated. I’m not aiming for a perfect shaped ball, either. Just enough to where it can be rolled in cracker crumbs, so basically just roughly rounded. I’m probably just doing it wrong, but its got me stuck! I hope others have better luck. Other than forming into balls though, it does taste really good!
