No-Bake Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake Recipe


No-Bake Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

½ cup finely crushed graham crackers

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

¾ cup fat-free milk

2 packages of (8 oz. each) reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened

1 package (8 oz.) fat-free cream cheese, softened

1 carton (8 oz.) fat-free dairy sour cream

1/3 cup sugar or sugar substitute equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled

Chocolate curls (optional)

In a medium bowl, stir together finely crushed graham crackers and melted butter until crumbs are moistened.  Press mixture evenly onto bottom of an 8 inch springform pan (may not completely cover bottom).  Cover and chill while preparing filling.

In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over milk; let stand for 5 minutes.  Heat and stir over low heat just until gelatin is dissolved.  Remove from heat.  Cool for 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.  Beat in sour cream, sugar and vanilla until well mixed; gradually beat in gelatin mixture.  Divide mixture in half.  Gradually stir melted chocolate into half of the mixture.

Spoon half of the chocolate mixture over chilled crust in pan; spread evenly.  Carefully spoon half of the white mixture over chocolate mixture in small mounds.  Using a narrow, thin-bladed metal spatula or a table knife, swirl chocolate and white mixtures.  Top with remaining chocolate mixture, spreading evenly; spoon remaining white mixture over chocolate mixture in small mounds a swirl again.  Cover and chill about 6 hours or until set.

To serve, using a small knife, loosen cheesecake from side of springform pan; remove side of pan.  Cut cheesecake into wedges.  If desired, garnish with chocolate curls.         16 servings

Make-ahead Directions:  Prepare as directed through step 4, except cover and chill for up to 24 hours.  Serve as directed in step 5.
