Probably the easiest recipe for Baileys & chocolate cheesecake you’ll ever find!
It is absolutely sublime.
Ingredients for a 9 inch Cheesecake.
100g/3½oz unsalted butter
250g/8¾oz biscuits such as Digestives or Hobnobs Crushed.
450g/1lb Cream cheese such as Philadelphia
1 slug of Baileys Irish cream
100ml/3½oz icing sugar
200ml/10½oz double cream
4 Flake bars.
Gently melt the butter in a saucepan.
Add the crushed biscuits and mix until the butter has been absorbed.
Remove from the heat and, while still warm, press the mixture (using the back of a spoon) into the bottom of a lined 23cm/9inch springform or flan tin. Leave to set for one hour in the fridge.
In a bowl, whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is soft. Beat in the icing sugar and a shot of Baileys.
Fold in the whipped cream and three crushed chocolate flake bars. When the mixture is smooth, smooth it evenly onto the biscuit base.
Refrigerate and allow to set overnight. Sprinkle the remaining crushed flake bar over the top before serving.
