                         Snickers Cheesecake Recipe

Fat-free cottage cheese and sour cream, plus light cream cheese, make this lightened Snickers cheesecake taste more decadent than it really is.  Each slice has fewer than 300 calories and 7 grams of fat.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs (about 5 cookie sheets)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups fat-free cottage cheese 
  • (8-ounce) tub light cream cheese 
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream 
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • large eggs 
  • large egg whites 
  • 1/4 cup fat-free caramel sundae syrup, divided
  • (2.07-ounce) chocolate-coated caramel-peanut nougat bars (such as Snickers), chopped and divided

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 300°.
  2. Sprinkle crumbs into bottom and halfway up sides of a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.
  3. Combine cheeses in a food processor; process 2 minutes or until smooth. Add brown sugar and next 6 ingredients (brown sugar through egg whites); process just until blended. Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons syrup; sprinkle with half of chopped candy bar. Pour remaining batter into pan; drizzle with 2 tablespoons syrup. Bake at 300° for 50 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining chopped candy bar; bake 10 minutes or until almost set. Turn oven off; let cheesecake stand for 1 hour in oven with door closed. Remove cheesecake from oven; cool to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
