Ingredients:

¼ tsp. vanilla
1 8-ounce package Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon semisweet mini chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Put 1 3/4-inch fluted paper cups into all of the 12 holes in a mini-muffin tin. Finely crush the graham cracker and divide the crumbs among the cups.

Put the egg, Splenda, vanilla, and cream cheese into a blender or food processor, or beat with an electric mixer.

Fold in the mini chocolate chips.

Spoon the mixture into the cups and bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center still moist. Remove the cheesecakes from the muffin tin and let them cool. Refrigerate for an hour before serving, if you can stand the wait.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In case dieting makes you hungry for something creamy, here is a no-guilt treat: only 2 grams carbohydrate (65 calories) per little cheesecake. (The problem is stopping at just one or two.) The recipe comes from "Protein Power" by the venerable Drs. Eades. Everybody asks me for this “diet cheesecake” recipe. Not really low calorie. . . .
