Donsuemor Madeleine Cheesecake Pops

About a month ago I was invited to participate in Donsuemor’s “Dessert a Day” Celebration, a month long celebration which will take place during the month of October in honor of National Dessert Month. And, if there is one National Food Holiday celebration I don’t want to miss… it’s definitely Dessert Month!

A few days after I letting them know I would love to participate in the celebration, I received a lovely box filled with Donsuemor’s Traditional Madeleines. Now that I had the goods in my pretty little hands, it was time to get the daydreaming dessert wheels cranking away and figure out what would be a quick and easy dessert to make with these beautiful and delicate cookies. So, the first thing that came to mind were cake cookie pops. Sure, why not?



Because the taste of these cookies is so delicate, I decided to bind the cookie crumbs with cream cheese instead of the traditional cake pop frosting and to help round out the “cheesecake” flavor I added a hint of vanilla extract and just a little more sugar.

Donsuemor Madeleine Cheesecake Pops
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 12
  • 14 Donsuemor Traditional Madeleine Cookies
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 12 lollipop sticks
  • pearl colored jimmies (optional)
  1. Finely crumble cookies with your hands in a medium sized bowl. Add cream cheese, vanilla extract, and granulated sugar. Mix well and form 1 ounce balls.
  2. Place cheesecake balls on a small tray and transfer to the freezer for 15-20 minutes. While cheesecake balls are chilling prepare the white chocolate ganache.
  3. Pour white chocolate chips into a small bowl and place over a double boiler over low heat. Stir until melted.
  4. Remove double broiler from the stove and place over a heat-safe surface. Remove a few cheesecake balls from the freezer at a time and place a lollipop stick into each one.
  5. Dip pops one at a time into the melted chocolate, gently shake to remove any excess chocolate and dip into jimmies. Repeat until all cheesecake pops have been coated.
  6. Transfer to the fridge until ready to serve.

Your photographs are stunning. Absolutely stunning.

Josie: How fun to be a part of that celebration. Your intro image of those cheesecake pops in the glasses should be on a magazine cover – it turned out gorgeous (seriously, you should submit it!). You’ve inspired me to want to make some pop-type desserts, now. Love it! :)

Thank you so much, it’s funny you would say that. Foodgawker just declined it due to “Dull, flat lighting”. Go figure. :)

I have to admit I’m usually bored to tears with cutesy cake pops (wince, sorry), what I see as the new ‘it’ thing and which, to me, a non-frosting person, don’t taste very good. Plus I’d need a dozen to feel like I’d had a proper piece of cake, even if I did like all that frosting.

But these? Oh my!

They are beautiful, to start. They are so lovely you could use these for a wedding display or bridal shower. I happen to also love this brand of Madeleine, and, with cream cheese, I’m certain they have so much more flavor than typical pops, so, bravo! bravo! Just beautiful.

These are gorgeous, another great post!


15 Katrina September 2, 2011 at 3:26 am

These are so cute!! Yum!

I love that you added cream cheese to these for a cheesecake flavor! They look so beautiful and sound so delicious!

Do cookie pops get any better than this? The presentation on these pops are perfect! I may have to borrow it for my step sisters up-coming bridal shower!

Gorgeous!!! We thought along the same lines with our madeleines. I made pumpkin flavored cake balls out of mine.

You are a wealth of creativity and talent! These cake pops are divine, but your photography – perfection!

I was wondering if you are aware that there might be a typo in your your Cheesecake Pops recipe? Double BROILER should be double BOILER. Broiler is under a flame and double boiler is over water. Melting chocolate and other delicate ingredients is done with a double boiler? Yes? No? I am happy with your recipes and am just pointing it out.


21 Daydreamer Desserts November 29, 2011 at 8:37 pm

Thank you so much for pointing out the typo, I definitely meant double boiler. I’ll fix that ASAP! :)
