Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup 
    finely crushed graham crackers
  • 2   tablespoons 
    butter, melted
  • 1   envelope 
    unflavored gelatin
  • 3/4  cup 
    fat-free milk
  • 2  8  ounce package 
    reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • 1  8  ounce package 
    fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 1  8  ounce carton 
    fat-free dairy sour cream
  • 1/3  cup 
    sugar or sugar substitute* equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2   teaspoons 
    vanilla
  • 4   ounces 
    semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled

    Chocolate curls (optional)
Directions
1.
In a medium bowl, stir together finely crushed graham crackers and melted butter until crumbs are moistened. Press mixture evenly onto bottom of an 8-inch springform pan (may not completely cover bottom). Cover and chill while preparing filling.
2.
In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over milk; let stand for 5 minutes. Heat and stir over low heat just until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat. Cool for 15 minutes.
3.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in sour cream, sugar, and vanilla until well mixed; gradually beat in gelatin mixture. Divide mixture in half. Gradually stir melted chocolate into half of the mixture.
4.
Spoon half of the chocolate mixture over chilled crust in pan; spread evenly. Carefully spoon half of the white mixture over chocolate mixture in small mounds. Using a narrow, thin-bladed metal spatula or a table knife, swirl chocolate and white mixtures. Top with remaining chocolate mixture, spreading evenly; spoon remaining white mixture over chocolate mixture in small mounds and swirl again. Cover and chill about 6 hours or until set.
5.
To serve, using a small sharp knife, loosen cheesecake from side of springform pan; remove side of pan. Cut cheesecake into wedges. If desired, garnish with chocolate curls. Makes 16 slices.
