Mini Baileys Cheesecakes

Creamy and boozy Mini Baileys Cheesecakes topped with drizzled chocolate and whipped cream.Mini Baileys Cheesecakes

If I had to name a cheesecake I’ve had the most, it would be Baileys cheesecake.

Then strawberry cheesecake.
I don’t think it’s possible to express how much I love Baileys cheesecake. Apart from the creamy but firm texture of cheesecake you have that lovely boozy taste of Baileys.

Ah, Baileys.

If you haven’t tasted Baileys you really need to. It’s an Irish rum cream that is in itself creamy and sweet but not too sweet. Personally speaking, it’s my favourite liqueur but I am looking to try out some more.
Godiva chocolate liqueur anyone?

Mini Baileys Cheesecakes

These Mini Baileys Cheesecakes are delicious. They are all the glory of a regular sized cheesecake minus the calories. And the time! I topped mine with whipped cream and chocolate but you could use dulce de leche, caramel or even frosting which all go well with them. Now, if you’d excuse me, I need to go back to testing these out…
