Sugar Free Chocolate Cheesecake

Since becoming sugar free last year I knew that I would struggle with giving up sweet treats especially desserts. Therefore when I hosted my pot luck meal and a friend brought around this mouth watering chocolate cheesecake I was in heaven. To say it was delicious was an understatement and while enjoying this fabulous dessert I knew I needed this recipe.

It’s a fantastic dessert to take to a dinner party and an excellent alternative for afternoon tea.
