  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 10 graham crackers, finely crushed
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
  • Strawberry sauce or chocolate sauce, for dipping (optional)


  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth using a hand mixer or stand mixer.
  2. Add granulated sugar and vanilla extract, continue to beat until well combined.
  3. Beat in the egg until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
  4. Gently fold in the crushed graham crackers until evenly distributed.
  5. Cover the mixture and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to firm up.
  6. Once chilled, scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of the cheesecake mixture and roll them into balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for 30 minutes.
  7. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F (175°C).
  8. Carefully drop the chilled cheesecake balls into the hot oil, frying in batches to avoid overcrowding. Fry for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  9. Remove the fried cheesecake bites using a slotted spoon and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  10. Optional: Dust the fried cheesecake bites with powdered sugar for extra sweetness.
  11. Serve warm with strawberry sauce or chocolate sauce for dipping.
  12. Enjoy your crispy fried cheesecake bites as a delightful dessert or snack!
