“This a cheesecake that everyone can enjoy, especially for all of thos chocoalte lovers's out there. It's particularly nice and very suitable for people who are diabetic or for people on a low-carb or low-fat diet. It's only 220 calories per slice and fits right into Weight Watchers Points = 5 points. I made this cheesecake to take to my friend's home for an afternoon "tea!" There was nothing left!! After I had convinced them that I had made it with Splenda Granular sugar substitute, if you prefer use Equal Spoonful substitute instead.”
