I received this Baileys® cheesecake recipe over 20 years ago from a local caterer. I have made it several times over the years and everyone who tasted it enjoyed it. Remember this is not for the diet conscious!

  • Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar in a bowl. Press over the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.

  • Bake crust in the preheated oven until set, about 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool while making the filling.

  • Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar, eggs, Irish cream, and vanilla extract to the cream cheese, beating well after adding each ingredient. Do not overbeat.

  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup chocolate chips over the cooled crust. Spoon cream cheese filling over the chocolate chips. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until puffed and golden brown, but center is still springy, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Let cool completely before removing from the pan, about 1 hour.

  • Beat whipping cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar and coffee granules. Continue beating until cream is firm enough to hold its shape. Spread over cooled cheesecake.

Excellent cheesecake! Mine was a bit under baked resulting in a cream pie texture. Nonetheless it was still delicious. I don't know if the whip cream topping is necessary. Although the topping is very tasty the cheesecake shines by itself. Next time I will add an extra 8-10 minutes bake time. Read More
