Baileys and White Chocolate Cheesecake

December 10, 2018Sew White

A creamy and rich Baileys and White Chocolate Cheesecake is the perfect treat for a Christmas party or as a change from the regular Christmas pudding.

I made this as a tester a few weeks ago for friends and family and it was devoured in seconds. This Baileys and White Chocolate Cheesecake is highly addictive so you have been warned.

The gold wrappers of the chocolate truffles look so fantastic on the cheesecake. When the guests find the truffles inside the cheesecake they will be surprised with how well they taste with the Baileys.

I love when the cheesecake has just come out of the fridge and is put on the plate ready to decorated.

Why didn’t I do a complete chocolate layer but rather keep it to the outside? I did it that way as it’s easier to cut the cheesecake when you want to serve it. However if you want to completely cover the cheesecake it work too.

Step by step how to make the Baileys and white chocolate cheesecake

1) Mix together the broken up shortbread and butter. 2) Press the mix into the cake tin to form the base. Pop in the fridge until hard.

3) Mix together the cream cheese and caster sugar until smooth. 4) In a new bowl whisk up the double cream until thick.

5) Mix the double cream into the cream cheese and stir in the Baileys. 6) Chop up the Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles and mix in. 7)Add the mix to the tin and pop back in the fridge until set.

Baileys and White Chocolate Cheesecake

Servings 10 slices
Author Sisley White

Ingredients

  • 45 g Unsalted butter
  • 150 g Shortbread biscuits
  • 300 g Soft cream cheese
  • 60 g Caster sugar
  • 150 ml Double cream
  • 50 ml Baileys
  • 10 Lindt white chocolate Truffles
  • 100 g white chocolate

Instructions

  1. Lightly grease an 6 inch loose base cake tin. (I also added a greaseproof paper circle at the bottom to help it off the base later)
  2. Melt the butter gently in the microwave or in a pan and then take off the heat.
  3. Crush the shortbread biscuits in a food processor, or put the shortbread in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to break them up.
  4. Put the biscuit crumbs in a bowl and add the melted butter. Stir until all the biscuits are coated in the butter.
  5. Scoop the crumbs into the tin and push down to make a hard layer. Put in the fridge for 20-30minutes to set.
  6. In a bowl cream together the cream cheese and caster sugar until the sugar has dissolved and is well distributed.
  7. In a new bowl lightly whip the double cream until it starts to thicken.
  8. Stir in the double cream and cream cheese mixture together.
  9. Stir in the Baileys.
  10. Chop the truffles and mix into the cream cheese mixture.
  11. Remove the cake tin from the fridge and add the cream cheese to the base and put back into the fridge to set. It takes roughly about 45-60 minutes.
  12. When it is set remove from the fridge and remove from the tin.
  13. Melt the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl in 10 second bursts in the microwave. Once it’s melted, allow to cool for a few minutes but while it’s still molten drizzle over the cheesecake.

    If you could just suspend all Christmas plans with your family and come over and be my Christmas day slave please, so I can get you to make this for me in outrageously huge quantities? No? I guess I’ll have to try making it myself then! It does look utterly fabulous!
