Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake

  • Six 2 1/2" Chocolate Graham Cracker Squares made into crumbs
  • 2 1/3 cups of part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 4 oz. nonfat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Amaretto Liquor
  • 2 Tbsp semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray an 8 Springfoam Pan with nonstick cooking spray (I used a pie pan and that worked well). Sprinkle the Cracker crumbs over the bottom.

2. In a blender or food processor, puree the ricotta and cream cheeses, the sugar, cocoa, egg, flour, liquear and vanilla; stir in the chocolate chips.

3. Pour the cheese mixture over the crumbs. Bake until a knife comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool completely. Refrifgerate, covered for 3 hours.

Try freezing this after cutting 12 pieces and heat up one at a time to satisfy chocolate cravings.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
