Ingredients

For the Base:

  • 300 g Digestive biscuits Crushed
  • 150 g Butter Melted (See Note 1.)
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa powder

For the Cheesecake mixture:

  • 100 g Icing sugar
  • 680 g Cream cheese See Note 2.
  • 300 ml Double cream
  • 90 ml Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur (About 5 tablespoons)

For the topping

  • 150 ml Milk Chocolate
  • Chocolates, sprinkles or Baileys truffles to decorate

Instructions

  1. Combine the crushed biscuits with the melted butter and cocoa and press into a tin. Chill in the fridge.

  2. Beat the cream cheese with the icing sugar until it's just combined, don't overmix.

  3. Add in the double cream and Baileys and whisk until very thick.

  4. Remove the base from the fridge and add the cheesecake mixture, smoothing the top.
  5. Pop into the freezer for at least 2 hours (or overnight if it makes if you don't need it until the next day).
  6. When you are almost ready to serve the cheesecake, melt the chocolate very gently in a bowl, sitting over a pan of simmering water. (Don't let the bowl touch the water!)

  7. When the chocolate is melted, allow to cool for about 10 minutes. It should be body temperature (so you can't feel it when you touch it with your finger).

  8. Remove the cheesecake from the freezer and take out of the tin (see tips above). Gently drizzle over the chocolate, working quickly. Add decorations.
  9. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Note 1 - Butter
I use unsalted butter for this and just melt it quickly in a mug in the microwave.

Note 2 - Cream Cheese
I like to use Philadelphia brand cream cheese for this recipe, I drain off any liquid before using. You can use other brands, but I find they are SLIGHTLY more difficult to combine. Be sure to always use Full Fat Cream Cheese.
