Bailey’s Irish Cream NO BAKE Cheesecake

Baileys Irish Cream Ad 1986

My bestie Allie Kelly made this for us and OMG you have NO IDEA how marvelous!!!

NO BAKE—yep, I said it!  And when I called she was kind enough to send me an email with the recipe so I could copy and paste.  Crazy easy.

Bailey's Irish Cream Cheesecake
*Allie Kelly's recipe

small pat of butter for greasing pan
6 oz. box of chocolate wafer cookies
4 tablespoons butter, softened
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
8 oz. milk chocolate
3/4 cup powdered sugar
12 oz. cream cheese (1 1/2 cups, or 1 1/2 8 oz. packages)
1 3/4 cups heavy cream
3 or 4 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur

Line the bottom of an 8-inch spring form pan with parchment paper. Smear the sides and paper with butter.

Crush the wafers in a plastic bag. Empty into mixing bowl with butter; mix and press into the bottom of the pan. Chill for about an hour.

In a double boiler, melt chocolates til they are just smooth. Allow them to cool to warm/room temp, but be careful not to let the chocolate begin to get firm add the liqueur and mix it well through. Beat the sugar and cream cheese until smooth, set aside. Whip the heavy cream until peaks form. Fold together the cream cheese and whipped cream, then gently fold in the chocolate and liqueur mixture. Blend together well.

Spread the filling into the pan and smooth out the surface. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Garnish with chocolate or any other decoration!
