  3. Beat the cream cheeses and sweetener (like Splenda) until light and fluffy.
  4. Add cooled chocolate.
  5. Gradually add 1 egg at a time. Fold in sour cream.
  6. Spray spring form pan with cooking spray like Pam. Pour mixture into pan.

This cheese cake is decadent. You will think you are cheating...but you can totally have your cake & eat it too!!!
Looks very tasty, but not quite sure the light cream cheese is for phase 1. On the Kraft cream cheese light version the South Beach Diet logo states phase 2 and 3. I think I will try when I get to phase 2.

YAY for cheese cake!
Deliscioso. I put some plain walnut and S/B whipped cream on top oh my gosh this was fantasic. Next I think I will freeze it and have some Sf choco syrup on it. I can hardly wait.

I did this recipe without the chocolate and it was still good. I ground walnut to the same consistency of crushed graham crackers and added cinnamon and splenda to make a crust. Best low carb cheese cake I ever had.

This was great, but a little on the bitter side for my sweet tooth. I'd like to try a mix of baking chocolate and semi-sweet. Definetly a great recipe to serve with a little bit of fresh fruit, I enjoyed strawberries with mine.
