Smooth and creamy, this recipe for Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cheesecake is absolutely amazing!
As a day after Christmas baby, I don’t normally get cake. but with this Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cheesecake recipe, I don’t even mind.
Easy to make, I did not use the coffee topping but instead made homemade whipped cream. No matter when you serve this delicious cheesecake recipe, it will receive rave reviews! For best results, I recommend preparing this wonderful cheesecake two nights in advance of your event.
I found the original recipe on Food.com. I did take a few liberties with it: I made an Oreo cookie crust and did not use the pecans. I also did not make the Coffee Cream Topping but instead made homemade whipped cream.
