These Boozy Baileys Mini Cheesecakes are so easy to make and are the perfect festive party food, they'll be gone in no time!
This time of the year is all about celebrations, parties, flowing glasses of Prosecco and indulgent little bites.
Making party food is so fun and easy, I basically just think of my favourite dishes and make them in miniature form.
These mini cheesecakes are so easy to make, there's hardly any work involved, they taste incredible and give an extra special touch to any party spread.
Serve them with my Ultimate Chocolate Martini for an incredible and decadent festive treat!
What cases to use to make mini cheesecakes
I used individual foil muffin cases that I bought from the supermarket to make these cheesecakes.
The foil cases give a nice smooth edge however regular muffin cases work just as good and are a little easier to unwrap.
You can also use a mini cheesecake mould that has removable bottoms if you have that, they work perfectly.
Tip: Regular muffin cases work well too and are so inexpensive and easy to find. Note that you will get a crimped edge around the sides and you should place them inside a muffin pan to make them easier to fill.
How to make Boozy Baileys Mini Cheesecakes
To make these yummy Boozy Baileys Mini Cheesecakes I first of all crush Oreo biscuits in a food processor until they resemble very fine breadcrumbs.
I add them to melted butter and mix it all together. The Oreo base is then pressed into the muffin cases and left to set in the fridge for one hour.
Meanwhile, have a little sip of that yummy Irish cream liqueur 🙂
To make the filling I simply whip together some cream cheese, icing (powder) sugar, Irish cream liqueur and grated chocolate.
I then fold in some whipped cream which makes it light and delicious before filling each muffin case with the topping.
They are then placed in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours and that's it!
Hardly any work involved, nothing that's gonna break a sweat anyway and you'll have yourself the most delicious and exciting Baileys mini cheesecakes that everyone will love. YUM indeed :).
