Irish Cream and Chocolate Cheesecake is a divine Irish Cream Liqueur based Cheesecake, perfect NO-BAKE dessert for St Patrick’s Day (or any other day!)

Irish Cream and Chocolate Cheesecake

Oh, cheesecake can be such an evil thing ! But, a delicious evil thing, that much I am willing to bet anyone and I am not even a betting kind of person. One slice of this Irish Cream and Chocolate Cheesecake is simply not enough.

The distinct taste of the Irish Cream and the Chocolate together is so awesome. And with only a hint of Irish Cream in the whipped Cream topping, it rounds off this Cheesecake very nicely.

Irish Cream and Chocolate Cheesecake

This is an absolute must dessert for after dinner (sorry kiddies, this one is for the adults!) and served with a strong cup of Espresso, this is heaven in your mouth.

You can add more chocolate to the Cream Cheese if you wish, but I like this ratio most.

The Irish Cream can also be decreased, if you feel a quarter cup is too much – as I always say, do the add and taste thing until you are happy.

After all, tastes vary and you are going to serve this Irish Cream and Chocolate Cheesecake, therefore go with your preferences.

There is also no baking involved,which is another plus point in my book. Being Summer, and going through a heatwave, I most definitely do not want to switch on my oven, unless I absolutely have to.
