    This was published in Light and Tasty this month. I tried it using half Splenda and half sugar and adding strawberries to garnish. It is very good! Perfect for the chocolate lover!

      This was quite good, especially for a diet dessert. This was so simple to whip together and the baking time was exact. This was not as firm as a regular cheesecake, but still has a rich, very creamy texture. I used Ghirardelli premium cocoa powder, which added a really rich, deep chocolate intensity.
