Irish Cream Cheesecake

Need an easy dessert for tonight?
Simple recipe. Simpler post. Simply delicious.

No bake cheesecake for chocolate lovers. Now who wouldn't like this? Enjoy!

Irish Cream Cheesecake

Vegetable oil
6 oz chocolate wafers
4 tablespoons butter, softened
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate
8 oz milk chocolate
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 cups cream cheese
1 3/4 cups heavy cream
3 or 4 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur

Line the bottom of an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Brush the sides with the oil.

Crush the wafers. I like to put them in a baggie and roll it with a rolling pin. Mix the wafer crumbs with the butter and press into the bottom of the pan. Chill for about an hour.

Melt the semi-sweet and milk chocolates just enough to blend. Let cool. Beat the sugar and cream cheese until smooth, put aside. Whip the heavy cream until peaks form. Fold in the cream cheese and chocolate mixtures. Stir in the liqueur and blend together well.

Spoon the filling into the pan and smooth out the surface. Shave a little chocolate curls on top if desired. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours

This is very good topped with dollops of whipped cream and fresh fruits.

  2. That looks so simple and easy to make. I like it....no baking needed! My children will surely love this. Looks very creamy and delicious.

  3. Really easy too. Excellent flavours, Just cant go wrong with Irish Cream!

  4. Just bought a bottle of irish cream, Albertsons, here went out of business, so I was trying to find something to do with it, guess I found it again, are you a mind reader thats twice in two days, I swear I want to take a picture of this receipt and show you! I just cant beleive it, and this is perfect. My hubby loves cheesecake, and I am besides myself reading this....thank you thank you thank you I will add that this looks like its heaven on a plate at this minute..cant wait to try this!

  5. I can't believe that a guy who says he doesn't make deserts or bake sweets much keeps coming up with such delicious sweet recipes!

  6. @Trix - this guy only knows easy recipes when it comes to baking....you will have to teach me a thing or two

  7. Cream cheese, cookie crust and chocolate? And it's no-bake??? Now I have no excuses :)

  8. No bake? No mix?No bake from scratch? As my daughter would say, "Are you serious?" Seriously tasty and delectable. The word "cheesecake" draws me in every time.

  9. Boy does this sound good! Just what I needed to see during my diet.Luckily I'm so weak from a 3 week lack of duck fat in my diet to make it to the grocery store for the heavy cream....BUT I am printing this out. Sounds like a Valentine's Day indulgence for me.

  10. So decadent and delicious! I love how easy this dessert is.
