Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe 


Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cheesecake

1 ¾ cups chocolate graham cracker (about 9 whole crackers)

¼ cup butter, melted

1 lb. fresh or frozen strawberries, thawed

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

½ cup cold water

2 packages (8 oz. each) fat-free cream cheese, cubed

1 cup (8 oz.) fat-free cottage cheese

Sugar substitute equivalent to ¾ cup sugar

1 carton (8 oz.) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed, divided

12 medium fresh strawberries

4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped


In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter.  Press onto the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a 9 inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.  Place on baking sheet.  Bake at 350 F. for 10 minutes or until set.  Cool on a wire rack.

Hull strawberries if necessary; puree in a food processor.  Remove and set aside.  In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute.  Heat over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved.  Transfer to the food processor; add the cream cheese, cottage cheese and sugar substitute.  Cover and process until smooth.

Add strawberry puree; cover and process until blended.  Transfer to a large bowl; fold in 2 cups whipped topping.  Pour into crust.  Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until set.

For garnish, wash strawberries and gently pat with paper towels until completely dry.  Cut tops off berries.  In a microwave, melt chocolate; stir until smooth.  Dip each berry tip until half of the berry is coated, allowing excess to drip off.  Place with tips pointed up on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Carefully run a knife around edge of springform pan to loosen; remove sides of pan.  Garnish cheesecake with chocolate-dipped strawberries and remaining whipped topping.            12 servings
