No-Bake Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

No-Bake Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

½ cup finely crushed graham crackers

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

3/4 cup fat-free milk

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

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

1 8-oz. carton 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 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 large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.  Beat in sour cream, sugar and vanilla until 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 and swirl again.  Cover and chill about 24 hours or until set.

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


Sugar Substitutes:  Choose from Splenda Granular, Equal Spoonful or packets, or Sweet ’N Low bulk or packets.  Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar.
