  • Irish Cheesecake
  • 1 Pre-made Graham Cracker Pie Crust Or Pre-made Chocolate Pie Crust
  • 1 8 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 1/8 cup Green Creme de Menthe Liqueur

  • 1 Green Food Coloring [optional - color to preference]
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Sauce [garnish drizzle] +


1_ Bring cream cheese to room temperature or heat slightly in your microwave.+

2_ Add everything in a bowl, except for lemon juice, chocolate chips and garnishments and blend until any lumps are fully dissolved.

3_ Important step:
Slowly add your lemon juice and blend with electric mixer to avoid curdling.

4_ Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula and pour into your pre-made crust.

5_ Garnish as desired, cover and chill for 2 hours.

Authors Notes:
You can easily make this cheesecake without the Cream De Menthe and increase your Baileys Irish Cream to 1/3 cup. Especially if you've used the mint version of chocolate chips.
Also, serve these slices in smaller wedges than you usually would. They're super rich and pack a serious punch at 17% unburned alcohol.
