It is the time of year when everyone is trying to lose weight and eat more healthy foods! But it is so hard to resist tasty desserts, which is why I made these Mini Chocolate Cheesecake. These bite sized desserts are pretty and delicious – and at the same time they are low calorie, because they were made with Splenda, not with sugar.Mini Chocolate Cheesecake -These tasty bite size chocolate cheesecakes are made with Splenda and covered with sugar free chocolate sauce and raspberries. #dessert #cheesecake #minidesserts #splenda #bitesize #chocolate

Too Much Sugar

Most Americans eat far too much sugar, so using a sugar substitute makes a lot of sense.

The 22 teaspoons of sugar eaten daily by the average American is more than triple the recommended amount for women, and more than double the recommended amount for men.  Small, easy changes like using sugar substitutes can really add up over time, while still allowing you to enjoy delicious desserts like these Mini Chocolate Cheesecake!

Splenda Sweetener

Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, but I rarely make it because it is so calorie laden.  Since I love it so much I eat way too much when I make it. So I modified my favorite cheesecake recipe to use Splenda and make the recipe much lower in calories.  I also decided to make my cheesecake in mini muffin tins, because portion control is an important part of reducing calories.

One little bite sized cheesecake is enough to satisfy my cravings without sabotaging my diet!

Cracked Cheesecake

It is easy to adapt recipes using the charts on the www.splenda.com website, and there are also directions right on the Splenda package.

Like most cheesecakes, my mini cheesecakes cracked as they cooled.  So to make them look prettier I also made a sugar free chocolate sauce to drizzle over the top and hide the cracks, and added a raspberry on top.

The Chocolate Sauce was very easy to make, and I ended up with an entire jar full of delicious sugar free Chocolate Sauce.
