  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 ½ cups of your favorite sugar-free cream-filled cookies


  • 3 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups Splenda (or your preferred sugar substitute)
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened baking cocoa

Optional toppings (these up the sugar content!)

  • Whipped creamed
  • Fresh fruit

Cooking Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to the correct heat you usually use based on the size of your cake pan. The smaller the pan, the less time needed.
  2. Crush the cookies and mix them with the melted butter. Spread that mixture onto your cake pan.
  3. Put the pan in the oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Sift the substitute sugar and cocoa. In a separate dish, beat the cream cheese, vanilla and butter with a mixer on medium speed. Add the sugar and cocoa and beat again. Add the eggs and use low speed to mix each egg one by one. Spread this mixture over the crust
  5. Bake your cake for 45 -55 minutes. You can top with whipped cream or fruit after refrigerating for about 4 hours or during the night.
