Directions:
To make the crust: Combine the chocolate crumbs, butter, pecans and Equal. Press onto bottom of a 9-inch pan. (I use a springform pan)

To make the cheesecake: Beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup of Equal in a mixing bowl on medium until smooth and well combined. Mix in the eggs, egg whites, cornstarch and salt. Fold in the sour cream and vanilla until combined. Remove 1/2 cup of the cheesecake batter. Stir in 3 tbsp. Equal, instant coffe crystals, and cocoa until well combined. Pour half of plain batter over crust. Top with 5 spoonfulls of the coffee batter. Using the tip of a knife or spatula, gently swirl the coffe batter into cheesecake. Repeat with the remaining batters. Bake in a preheated 325 F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until the center of the cake is almost set. Cool on a wire rack. Gently run a metal spatula around the rim of the pan to loosen cake. Let the cheesecake cool compmletely. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight before serving.
