Ingredients

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons sucralose-based sugar substitute, divided
2 tablespoons honey
3 teaspoons vanilla, divided
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup whipping cream

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 8-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Cut 8-inch parchment paper or waxed paper circle to fit bottom of pan. Place paper in pan; spray lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Beat cream cheese, eggs, 1/3 cup sugar substitute, honey and 2 teaspoons vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed 2 to 3 minutes or just until well blended. With mixer running at low speed, beat in cocoa until well blended. Do not overbeat.
