  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream room temperature
  • 16 oz chocolate chopped and melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 cup Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur

Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Ganache:

  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup

  • 1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 1/4 cup powdered Sugar

Brownie Layer Crust:

  1. Lightly coat a 10-inch springform pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Cover the outside (bottom and sides) of the pan with foil.
  3. Prepare brownie mix according to directions on the box.
  4. Pour batter into the springform pan.
  5. Freeze for one hour, or until the layer is settled.

Baileys Cheesecake Filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese for 1 minute. Add sugar, salt, cocoa, and flour, mix until completely combined and there are no lumps. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  3. With the mixer on low, add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until just mixed through, do not to over-beat. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  4. Add sour cream and Baileys, beat until mixed through.
  5. Add the cooled melted chocolate, stopping to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
  6. Pour the batter on top of the brownie layer in the prepared pan. Level the top with a spatula.
  7. Place the springform pan in a large roasting pan, that is deep enough to add water to it. Pour HOT water into the roasting pan, about halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
  8. Transfer the cheesecake into the preheated oven and bake it for 50-60 minutes. Or until the cheesecake is just slightly wobbly in the center, but puffy and settled on the sides.
  9. Turn off the oven and crack open the door. Cool cheesecake completely in the open oven.
  10. Once completely cooled remove from the oven and refrigerate for at least 5-6 hours.
  11. Run a butter knife around the edges to release it from the pan. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Baileys Chocolate Ganache:

  1. Add chopped chocolate and corn syrup to a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the cream to a rolling simmer. Pour the cream on top of the chocolate pieces and set aside for 1 minute. With a whisk, begin to incorporate the melted chocolate into the cream, whisking until smooth and glossy. Whisk in the Baileys Irish Cream.
  3. Set aside, at room temperature, until needed.
  4. Pour ganache over cooled cheesecake. Chill until ganache is set, about 30 minutes.

Baileys Whipped Cream:

  1. Add all ingredients to a cold/chilled bowl and whisk until fluffy.
  2. Add to a piping bag fitted with the star tip and pipe onto the cheesecake.
  3. Garnish with chocolate sprinkles and chill until ready to serve.
