Skinny Chocolate Cheesecake

Hi Everyone,

I already wrote my post for today yesterday, but after making Thursday nights dessert, I couldn’t wait till Saturday to share it with you!  After all it’s rich, creamy and oh so chocolaty and I mean chocolaty!  With that description, how could I not share it with you right away?  Let me introduce you to my newest cheesecake.

Let me tell you I even impressed myself with this treat!!  Not only is this treat so dam, yes I’m swearing, dam good, it’s only, get this, it’s only 101 calories!!  I haven’t a clue on how I managed this, no clue at all.  But I triple checked the stats and they are correct!!!  How can something that tastes like a combination of chocolate mousse meets cheesecake and be only 101 calories?  Don’t question it, just make it and eat it!!!

I used a combination of Ghiradelli Intense Dark Chocolate 72% Cacao, and Trader Joe’s Milk Chocolate Pounder Bar.  I was hoping to make the chocolate darker in color and put a spider web design on it, but I tried it with one of the cheesecakes and I didn’t do a good job of decorating it!  So, to make it pretty, I topped it with whip cream and a wedge of dark chocolate   I think whip cream and more chocolate complimented it very nicely, if I do say so myself.

These cheesecakes are pretty quick and easy to make too!  They would be perfect served at a Halloween party or with a side of strawberries for a romantic evening!  Or you can celebrate you and have one or two!  To make them, I mixed cream cheese, stevia, egg, vanilla and plain yogurt together, then beat in the melted chocolate.  Then I placed the batter in a muffin cup with a reduced fat vanilla wafer, bake for 20 minutes and they are done!  The only problem is, waiting for them to cool!  These guys were refrigerated for 4 hours and I couldn’t wait for them to be done!!  You don’t even know how bad I wanted to eat one!!!

I think this is a great way to start the weekend!!!  So you must make these!!!  You simply must!  Trust me if you like cheesecake and chocolate mousse, you will LOVE these mini cheesecakes!!

Have a great weekend!
