1/4 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
5 tablespoons light butter, melted
Peanut Butter Center:
1/2 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
3 tablespoons reduced-fat peanut butter
3 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese

Chocolate Filling:
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
1 3/4 cups Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces sugar-free chocolate, melted

Cooking Directions:

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
