No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

This cheesecake is so easy to make and so flavorful that you won't believe it's not the standard fare when it comes to cheesecakes.

(Yields 12 servings)

  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 12 squares)
  • 2 tbsp. reduced-fat margarine, melted
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 4 squares (1 oz. each) semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 4 packages (8 oz. each) fat-free cream cheese
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

    1. In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs and margarine. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch spring-form pan. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

    2. For the filling, in a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water. Let stand for 1 minute. Heat over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add the semisweet chocolate and stir until melted.

    3. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar substitute, and sugar until smooth. Gradually add the chocolate mixture and cocoa. Beat in vanilla. Pour into crust. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
