Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Cups

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake CupsA chocolate wafer crust forms the base of each peanut butter-filled chocolate cheesecake cup.

Recipe Ingredients:

Crust:
36 reduced-fat chocolate wafers
1/4 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
5 tablespoons light butter, melted

Peanut Butter Center:
1/2 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
3 tablespoons reduced-fat peanut butter
3 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese

Chocolate Filling:
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
1 3/4 cups Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces sugar-free chocolate, melted

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Make Crust: Crush cookies into fine crumbs. Blend all crust ingredients together in a small bowl. Stir until well blended. Set aside.
  3. Make Peanut Butter Center: Place all center ingredients in a small bowl. Mix until well blended. Set aside.
  4. Make Chocolate Filling: Melt chocolate in small saucepan over low heat. Set aside. Place cream cheese and Splenda® Granulated Sweetener in a small mixing bowl. Beat until soft. Slowly add skim milk. Mix, using a wire whisk, until smooth. Add melted chocolate. Stir well. Add egg substitute and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Set aside.
  5. Assemble Cups: Place 24 mini size foil baking cups on a sheet pan. Evenly divide crust between the 24 baking cups. Firmly press crusts into the bottom of the cups. Place approx. 1/2 teaspoon of the peanut butter center in the center of each crust-lined baking cup. Spoon chocolate filling into each baking cup. Firmly tap sheet pan on counter top to remove any air bubbles.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350°F (175°C) oven 10 to 15 minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch. Chill for approximately 2 hours before serving. Drizzle optional melted chocolate over the top for a garnish.

Makes 24 servings.
