Inspired by Paul Hollywood's chocolate and prune tart, I've made a chocolate and prune cheesecake, altering a few things here and there to make it sweeter, but less fattening.

Preparation Time: 2 hours 45 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

175g wholemeal plain flour
2 tbsp Truvia sweetener (or 60g caster sugar)

100ml boiling water
1 tsp vanilla extract
75g milk chocolate
125g creme fraiche
200g cream cheese
