Serves 8 | Prep Time | Cook Time

Ingredients

6 chocolate wafers (about 1-1/2 ounces)
Cooking spray
1 cup sugar
1 cup 1% low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup (4 ounces) block-style fat-free cream cheese
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pkg. (8-ounce) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1 large egg
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate mini chips


Preheat oven to 300ºF. Place wafers in a food processor, and pulse until coarsely ground. Sprinkle crumbs into bottom of an 8-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.



Place sugar and next 8 ingredients (sugar through cream cheese) in a food processor, and process until smooth. Add egg, and process until blended. Pour the cheese mixture into prepared pan, and sprinkle with mini chips.



Bake at 300ºF for 55 minutes or until the cheesecake center barely moves when pan is touched. Remove cheesecake from oven, and run a knife around outside edge. Cool to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
