These amazing marbled chocolate cream cheesecake bars.


Ingredients:

Chocolate Cake:

  • 2/3 cup Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet or my sweetener
  • 2/3 cup Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend 
  • 2/3 cup raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs

Cheesecake Topping:

  • 4 oz 85% dark chocolate (chopped) or sugar free chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet or my sweetener
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 tsp butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 baking pan.
  2. You can just dump all the chocolate cake ingredients into the bowl at once and mix with an electric mixer. It will end up like a thick chocolate batter. Spread in the prepared baking pan.
  3. In a new bowl (or after you wash the first one) mix the cheesecake topping ingredients (except the chocolate) Blend until smooth. Pour over the chocolate cake batter.
  4. Sprinkle the tops of the cupcake with the chopped chocolate. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until the cheesecake is slightly firm, puffed up, and turning golden brown around the edges.
  5. Cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Store in the refrigerator. Enjoy your cake!
