This is one of our favorite desserts yet. It snuck up on us though. I knew we’d like it, but I didn’t expect how much we’d like it. More accurately, looove it. It was a sleeper favorite.

Obviously, we like all of the flavors in this: Bailey’s, chocolate, coffee, and stuff with creamy texture. What’s not to like? Those are all wonderful. And while I like all of those things a lot, I can’t isolate any single one of them to say that adore it. Except coffee. I do adore that stuff in any way, shape, or form, but I still don’t see a coffee dessert and anticipate that it will turn out to be an all-time favorite.

Therefore, I didn’t expect this cheesecake to be an all-time favorite. But it is. All of the flavors together are perfection. Especially combined with a creamy, silky, light, and luscious texture. It’s rich, but not heavy. It has the perfect amount of Bailey’s and the perfect amount of coffee. It won’t get you drunk, and it won’t give you a caffeine rush, but you *will* taste both, and they both make their presence known without being overwhelming.

I also stuffed it with some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. It had to have them. Those little mini ones make every single dessert better. They add a little crunch to the creamy silkiness, and the burst of chocolate adds more richness and intensifies the Bailey’s and coffee flavors.

Unfortunately, it didn’t photograph nearly as beautifully as it tastes. Tan and brownish foods are still troublesome for me in photos, and I haven’t quite figured out the right formula for making those things pop in pictures. I welcome any helpful hints please! Because this is a very monochromatic food, and light in color, it didn’t really lend itself to stunning photography! Pretty sure I’m not capable of stunning photography even in the most ideal conditions, but even harder when the food is light tan!! The photos don’t do justice to the deliciousness of this cheesecake. Let’s leave it at that.

Since it’s no-bake, you could truly put this cheesecake together in about 20 minutes. You have some idle time waiting for the cream cheese to get to room temp, but once you’re there, this thing comes together in about 20 minutes. I can’t think of an easier and tastier St. Patrick’s Day dessert!

You should drink a Bailey’s-spiked coffee with this dessert, of course. Because that’s not flavor overkill! Maybe a Guinness instead. Beer and cheesecake… mmmmmm.

    Coffee, Bailey’s and chocolate all in a quick and easy dessert? Sign me up! That looks awesome – and I think the photos are fine! I’m with you on light foods being really hard to photograph, but I think you did a good job on these ones! :)

    • says

      Right? Light foods and pastels are really hard. I can’t figure out how to make the colors pop. Such a pain. Thank you for saying they look fine though!!! They don’t do justice to how much prettier it is in person! Haha!

        Do you make this and where is the sugar in the ingredients?

        You are to mix powdered sugar and irish cream at the end. But again, what about the sugar you are to mix with the cream cheese, milk and vanilla?

    So many great Easter desserts to choose from right here but I think this one wins. Although, I just might HAVE to do something else too! Thanks Sarah! GREAT website!

    • says

      Aww, but you’re just saying all those nice things because you’re my friend and you *have* to! :) MAKE THIS CHEESECAKE. It’s fabulous. Be warned, it is NOT healthy though. 😉

    Sarah: Can you provide nutritional information for this yummy-looking recipe? I am paying attention to my caloric intake and food portion sizes as I joined Weight Watchers at the end of last summer to lose some extra pounds. I have done very well and am nearing my goal, but I am wondering to what extent this recipe might work with low-fat cream cheese or Neufchatel (I probably spelled that wrong) cheese, and possibly light whipped cream instead of heavy cream, or even fat-free Cool Whip for the topping. I’m not a Philistine or anything but if I can make a lower-fat version of this that will taste halfway decent, I will give it a try.

    • says

      Hi Margo: Unfortunately, I cannot provide the nutritional information, but there are many sites that calculate that for you! You can *definitely* lighten this up by using reduced-fat cream cheese, and a fat free or lite whipped topping! You could even reduce the amount of chocolate chips that you add in, and for the crust, you could probably find reduced-fat Oreos! I believe they make reduced fat Oreos! There’s a lot of ways you could cut calories here actually. I hope that helps!!

    • says

      YES, you should try it. The pictures don’t do it justice – one of my top 3 faves on the blog. I assume you are also a Bailey’s lover too, right?? 😉
