Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake – a rich and creamy chocolate cheesecake with the great taste of Baileys Irish Cream. Topped with Baileys whipped cream and plenty of chocolate shavings!
Do you have a favorite dessert that you serve for the holidays or when you have dinner guests? I am always trying new recipes, so I don’t have a go to. But when I really want to impress I make cheesecake; Cookie Dough Cheesecake is a favorite for sure. Everyone loves cheesecake, and it always impresses. You can make mini cheesecakes like these mini Key Lime Cheesecakes, which are great for parties.
Last year for Christmas I made a Peppermint Chocolate Cheesecake that was a huge hit, so these year I decided to mix it up but stay on the same page. So we have this Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe. So rich and creamy, still chocolate, but Irish cream flavor instead of peppermint. Plus just look at the chocolate curls!
I got the recipe for this cheesecake from the new book Simply Beautiful Homemade Cakes by Lindsay Conchar from Life, Love, and Sugar. I had the pleasure of meeting Lindsay on my trip to Ohio earlier this year. She is one of the sweetest, nicest people ever. And she is uber talented. We have a running joke in my family about my decorating skills. I craft kind of like a 5 year old. So just paging through this book, is like looking at works of art to me.
I ear marked a few recipes as soon as I received the book, and I knew this Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake was going to be Christmas dessert. The Funfetti Cookie Cake was the first thing I made at the request of my husband. I usually make chocolate desserts, but he doesn’t like chocolate. So when he was eyeing that one Saturday afternoon, I decided it was time. I check and had everything I needed, so for dessert that night he got his cookie cake, with no chocolate.
Lindsay does an amazing job of giving detailed instructions with tons of pictures in this book. Look at all those chocolate curls. I have struggled with chocolate curls my whole life. But not any more! I can’t wait to use this when I make my favorite French Silk Pie next time. The pictures made this method super easy.
There are recipes for cheesecakes, layer cakes, cookie cakes, frozen cakes, cupcakes and everything in between. I can’t wait for my husband’s birthday in a couple months, because I am trying out her frosting techniques. I have never frosted a pretty cake before, but now I think I can.
Cheesecakes are a little more involved to make, but the nice thing is you can start them the day before. I made the base of the chocolate cheesecake, and put it in the fridge. The next afternoon I made the whipped cream to spread over the top and the chocolate curls. Then it was ready when my family was here that night. And it disappeared in no time!
If you have any chocolate lovers in your life, they are going to love this cheesecake recipe. I mean, all those layers of chocolate can not be bad!
