 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4   c            Unsalted Butter
    3       tb           Cocoa powder
      1/4   c            Lowfat cream cheese
    4       tb           6 tb artificial sweetener -- *
 
   Melt the butter in a small saucepan.  Add the cocoa and cook,
   stirring, for 3 minutes over low heat.  Remove from the heat and
   leave to cool for 5 minutes.
   Stir cheese into the cocoa, then mix in the artificial sweetener to
   taste. Chill the chocolate spread in a covered container and it will
   keep for about 3-5 days in the refrigerator, depending on the shelf
   life of the cheese.
   
   *This works very well but it important to avoid sweeteners containing
   saccharine as they make the spread very bitter.
