No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Low Sugar
I am working very hard to change my eating habits and as I’ve mentioned before one thing I have a real problem with is going without dessert. I made that cheesecake with the fruit topping which was delicious but I wanted to try something I didn’t have to bake. This is really a non recipe, only a few simple ingredients but it turned out absolutely delicious. Again it’s all about portion size and I made these in little cupcake papers. They are tiny but just enough to satisfy. What I love about this is that there is no cooking or baking required and it’s ready in a flash.
No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake
8 oz cream cheese
2 tsp organic stevia
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 oz dark chocolate broken into pieces
1/2 cup half and half or heavy cream
Carrs whole meal biscuit
chocolate to drizzle
ground hazelnuts to garnish ((I used King Arthur toasted hazelnut flour)
Heat the half and half or heavy cream in the microwave to scalding approximately 40 seconds. Add the chocolate and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir until smooth, if you need to put it back in the microwave do it for 20 seconds.
Place cream cheese,stevia and vanilla in the food processor and pulse until creamy. Add the chocolate mixture and process for a few seconds until combined and it’s smooth.
Place a whole meal biscuit at the bottom of the cupcake liners and spoon a little of the cheesecake mixture on top. Smooth the top and refrigerate until set. About 4 hours.
I used cupcake cups with straight sides but you can use regular cupcake liners. Removing was fairly simple, I ran a small flexible offset spatula to loosen the edges then tore the cupcake paper to release and using the spatula I lifted the cheesecake onto the plate.
Serve with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a sprinkling of ground hazelnuts.
