Baileys Irish Cream Mini Cheesecakes


For the crust:

16 whole Oreo, finely ground in food processor

3 tablespoons melted butter

For the filling:

16 oz (2-8-oz pkg) cream cheese

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 1/3 cups sour cream

3 Tablespoons Bailey’s Irish Cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled slightly

For the ganache glaze:

4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 teaspoons light corn syrup


Preheat your oven to 350, and from there, take the Oreos that are ground along with the melted butter, placing them in a bowl until everything is completely combined.

Spoon the mixture into 24 mini cheesecake cups, and then press them downwards until there is a flat bottom to them. if you have a container or a cup that’s small enough to get in there, that works too.

Bake these partially for about 10 minutes, then take them out.

Get a large bowl and then beat the sugar and the cream cheese until it becomes fluffy and light, and then beat in the eggs, once each. Finally, stir in the baileys, the sour cream, and the vanilla to this as well.

Spoon or pour your batter directly into the cheesecake cups that are there, to fill it about less than half.

Add in the chocolate that’s melted, and fill all of this until it’s about ¾ full

Bake the little cups for about 25-28 minutes or until they’re all the way cooked. From there, take them out, and then, put them on a rack that’s wired to help them cool down.

Once you’ve finished the cheesecakes, and they’re sitting to be cool enough to handle, you can loosen the sides of this with a knife that’s plastic, and then, you can remove them, which you can do by pressing up on the bottoms which are removable.

Then, you can arrange these on a waxed paper, and from there make the glaze.

Combine the ingredients for the glaze until they’re combined, and then, put them on the little cheesecakes. Wait a little bit for the glaze to set on these fully before you serve them. enjoy these wonderful little desserts that are great for any occasion.
