What I’m really excited about though is the Splenda No-Calorie Sweetener. Splenda can be used anywhere sugar is used with equal portions, but without all the calories. That is 678 calories less than sugar on a cup to cup basis. Now you can enjoy these Raspberry Marbled Mini Cheesecakes with your spouse (and kids!) without worrying too much about your waistline.
FYI – I may have scoured my county for a mini cheesecake pan solely so I could create this recipe for you guys. It was the only one I could find and was the absolute last one in Williams & Sonoma! I love you that much. You’re welcome. Now go bake these!
