Just because you’re diabetic (or watching your sugar intake), doesn’t mean you don’t get to treat yourself!

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup plus 4 TBSP butter, softened (or use margarine to reduce the saturated fat)
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
2 TBSP vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
Cooking spray
2 (8-ounce) block 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup “measures-like-sugar” calorie free sweetener
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
