Healthy-ish Dessert: Mini Mocha Cheesecakes

I ripped this recipe out of my Everyday Food Magazine.  I've been meaning to make them.  I did.  You should too.

Seriously, only 174 calories and SO easy to make.  I repeat, SO easy to make. Get it? OK, good.

I added a Kahlua whipped cream to the original recipe.

You'll Need: (Makes 9)

For the Cheesecake:
-2 cups (16 oz.) Nonfat cottage cheese
-2 eggs
-1.5 cups confectioner's sugar
-1/3 cup cocoa powder
-1 Tablespoon + 1.5 teaspoons flour
-1.5 teaspoons espresso powder
-1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
-9 chocolate wafers (Nabisco's Famous)
-Muffin tin
-9 cupcake liners
-food processor

For the Whipped Cream:
-1/2 cup cream
-1 teaspoon Kahlua
-1 Tablespoon superfine sugar


Line your muffin tin.  Preheat the oven to 275 (F).  Put everything in the food processor.


Give it a whirl until everything is fully combined and smooth.  May take several minutes.


Pour the mixture into the prepared muffin tin, distributing equally among the 9 liners.  Then put a wafer on top of each one.


Bake for about 25 minutes.  Remove from oven, leave them in the pan and let cool to room temperature.  Then transfer to the refrigerator and store until its time to eat! In the mean time, whip up the cream to soft peaks with sugar and Kahlua. Serve.  Enjoy.  Die of happiness and celebrate the fact that you can have at least 2, after all...only 174 calories!
