Absolutely loved this recipe! I am an avid cheesecake lover, but have agonized over all the calories and fat in just one slice. This cheesecake was really delicious and I could eat two slices in one day and not feel guilty. Yahoo! I will definitely make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup about 3 oz. reduced-fat chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1 12 tablespoons melted butter or 1 12 tablespoons margarine
  • 3 (8 ounce) packages fat-free cream cheese
  • 1 (14 ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 12 cup miniature chocolate chip


  1. Combine crumbs and melted butter. Pat evenly over bottom and about 3/4 inch up the side of a removable-rim 8-inch cheesecake or cake pan (at least 1 3/4 inches deep).
  2. In a food processor or bowl, whirl or beat cream cheese, milk, egg whites, and vanilla until very smooth. Stir in 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
  3. Scrape batter into prepared pan. Evenly sprinkle batter with remaining chocolate chips.
  4. Bake in a 350° oven until cake jiggles only slightly in the center when gently shaken, about 30 minutes.
  5. Run a thin-bladed knife between cake and pan rim. Refrigerate cake, uncovered, until cool, at least 2 1/2 hours. Serve, or if making ahead, wrap airtight when cool and chill up to 2 days. Remove pan rim and cut cake into wedges.
