Chocolate Crust:

Cheesecake Filling:


[Note: I didn’t list the amount here because it is up to you how much you want to put on of each item. However the individual recipes for each are plenty to top this cheesecake.]


    • Crust:
    • Grease a 10-inch springform pan with cooking spray, set aside.
    • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and press into the bottom of a springform pan.
    • Bake at 425°F for 6-7 minutes. Do not over bake.
    • Reduce oven to 325°F
    • Filling:
    • Mix cream cheese and sour cream together with an electric mixer until smooth. If it clumps a bit that means your cream cheese was not softened enough. Put in the microwave for 10 seconds and mix again with the electric mixer. If it is not smooth repeat last step until it is smooth.
    • Add eggs, lemon juice, stevia, and erythritol until well incorporated.
    • Pour the cheesecake filling over the chocolate crust, smooth the top so that it is even across the pan.
    • Bake at 325°F for 20-25 minutes or until it is mostly solid.
    • The center will be a little wiggly, it will set as it cools.
    • Cool completely on the counter and then put in the refrigerator covered overnight.
    • To Assemble:
    • Remove the ring from the springform pan. Slide a knife around the pan to loosen it from the ring. Be careful that the cheesecake does not stick to the ring when removing.
    • After the cheesecake is set put the caramel sauce in a sandwich baggie snipped with a small hole at the corner or a pastry bag with a fine tip.
    • Draw lines over the cheesecake until you have the desired amount on the cheesecake. I used the entire batch of my caramel recipe (1/3 cup).
    • Repeat the same process as above with the chocolate fudge sauce, I used about ¼ cup of my chocolate sauce recipe.
    • It is up to you how much you want to put on of both sauces.
    • Sprinkle sugar-free chocolate chips.
    • Sprinkle on chopped toasted pecans.
    • Put back in the refrigerator until serving.



    Nutrition is for just the crust and the cheesecake. Any added items such as the caramel sauce, fudge sauce, pecans, and chocolate chips are not included in the nutrition amounts. I did not add the nutrition amounts for these items so you can decide how much to add of each item if at all and if you use other recipes or store-bought items. The nutrition for my caramel, fudge sauce, and chocolate chips has the nutrition on the recipe for you.
