Food Geek Friday: Blackberry Red Wine Cheesecake Poptails

Last summer was the summer of the adult popsicle. Then the other day I find this recipe. I was totally intrigued by it and knew I had to spin something. I already had blackberries and wine so decided to twist my no-bake cheesecake recipe and see if it would work in popsicle form. It did.

Looks like the adult popsicle experiments shall continue through this summer as well.
