How To Make Fried Cinnamon Crunch Cheesecake Bites
Your usual cheesecake recipe but coated with crunchy breadcrumbs and cinnamon sugar. This fried cinnamon crunch snack will complete your afternoon.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and vanilla with an electric hand mixer until smooth, then add the sugar and beat to incorporate.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, then add the heavy cream. Beat on high speed for about 2 minutes or until the batter is thick and smooth.
Freeze for 45 minutes.
Use a small ice cream scoop to scoop out balls of batter and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 2 hours.
Add the cinnamon crunch cereal to a food processor and blend until super-fine crumbs form.
Place the cinnamon crunch crumbs, flour, and eggs in 3 separate shallow bowls.
Take a cheesecake ball and toss it in the flour. Tap off any excess flour, dip in the eggs, and then toss it in the cinnamon crunch crumbs. Dip it back in the egg again, then again in the cinnamon crunch crumbs.
Repeat with the remaining cheesecake balls, placing them back on the baking sheet. Return to the freezer while the oil heats up for about 15 minutes.
Heat the oil in a large pot until it reaches 350 degrees F.
Fry the cheesecake balls, 4 at a time, until golden brown for about 1 minute.
Drain the cheesecake balls on a wire rack or paper towels.
Sprinkle powdered sugar over the cheesecake bites and serve warm.
