No Bake Irish Cream Cheesecake
Happy Monday!! How was your weekend guys? Was it warm in your parts of the world?
It’s still winter here in Upstate NY but it felt like spring this weekend with temperatures up to 60 degree!! 60!! It was amazing and we took advantage of it and spent some time walking outside. The rest of the weekend was relaxing and ended it with the Oscars last night. Did you watch it? Any favorite outfits? I had a few like Charlize Theron, Lady Gaga (that pants/dress combo!!!), my girl Kerry Washington and Brie Larson that I loved but I was in and out of the room with bath time and bed time that I missed some of the red carpet. I wish I had a slice of this Irish Cream Cheesecake but it was all gone since I made it a few weeks ago.
St Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and for the non-Irish, it’s just a day for us to enjoy Irish booze and not be judged. For me that involves adding some booze to baked goods starting with this Irish Cream Cheesecake. It’s actually a no-bake mousse cheesecake sitting on a mint chocolate Oreo crust and topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Yummy right? It’s an amazing recipe that you won’t want to me.
Because, you all love cheesecake so much, I tested this recipe on a few people (hubs, lab mates and friends) because I wanted to make sure the filling is creamy as possible. Modeled after my popular white chocolate cheesecake pie, I whisked together cream cheese and Irish cream. I love using Bailey’s, the original irish cream but you can use your favorite here. To the cream cheese mixture, I folded in freshly whipped heavy cream that makes this no-bake dessert airy and mousse-like. All of this is set on top of a mint chocolate crust that is crunchy. I am in love with this cheesecake and I hope you get to try it soon.
Here’s to a great week!
