Baileys Irish Cream No-Bake Cheesecakes

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. While I am not much into the green beer or parties I do always make my favourite Slow Cooker Corned Beef with Cabbage and Potatoes.

I decided to whip up a quick little dessert to finish off dinner. I know it's not green but it does have a bunch of Baileys in it‼ And that is totally Irish, right??

What you need,

1¼ cup Oreo cookie crumbs
¼ cup butter, melted

½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 8oz. block of cream cheese, softened
1 cup Cool Whip
½ cup Baileys Irish Cream Liquor
2 tsp. vanilla

More Cool Whip and sprinkles for topping

In a small bowl combine the butter and Oreo cookie crumbs. Mix until all the crumbs are moist. 
Divide the crumbs evenly between 4 small bowls. Press them with the back of a spoon to create an even layer.

In a small bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. I like to do 30 second increments on ½ power, stirring often until fully melted.

In a large bowl combine the cream cheese and melted chocolate. With an electric hand mixer beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Stir in the Baileys and vanilla until fully incorporated.

Gently fold in the Cool Whip until no streaks remain.
Spoon the mixture over the crumbs in the 4 bowls and smooth off the tops.

Cover the cakes with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight.
Before serving dollop on a little more Cool Whip and shake on some green sprinkles, it is St. Patrick’s Day after all‼

These simple little desserts are amazing! You will love them.

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
