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 whiskey 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?

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…

    Hi there,

    Just followed your recipe and they turned out great!!
    Just as an FYI… Bailey’s Irish Cream is a “whiskey” based
    Beverage… not a rum based one.
