The BEST Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake with Toblerone chocolate… completely no-bake (so there’s no need to turn the oven on!). Easy and delicious!

Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake (No-Bake)

As I’m writing this, I have literally spent the entire last week making (and eating!) Christmas desserts. Well I suppose they can be ‘anytime of the year desserts’ but they are perfect for Christmas! Needless to say I am absolutely full to the brim with cheesecake, ice-cream and pretty much anything mint flavoured. At this rate, there’s a fair chance someone will need to roll me through the doorway at Christmas-time!!

Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake

Anyway, let me tell you about this Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake. First of all, it’s SO good. Like ‘roll on the floor’ good. Like ‘eat wayyyy too much and need to have a nap’ good.

Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake

Is is totally addictive? Yep! Extremely naughty? Heck yes! The best thing you’ll eat this Christmas? There’s a very, very high chance!!! Seriously it’s the BEST!

Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake

You could totally make this Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake at anytime of the year, but to me, Baileys just screams Christmas. And cheesecake? Well that certainly screams Christmas too! It’s just a match made in heaven.

Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake

I’ve made this Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake with only a subtle Baileys flavour (to keep everyone happy!), BUT you can absolutely add lots more Baileys to make it stronger. If you do that though, you’ll need to add a little more gelatine powder so that it sets firm.

Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake

Hey, did I mention that this yummy little boozy cheesecake is also completely no-bake?? How great is that! I love anything no-bake – it’s just so quick and easy.

Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake

If you do decide to make this cheesecake, I always recommend making it the day before and leaving it overnight in the fridge to firm up. That being said, I cut my Baileys Chocolate Cheesecake for these photos about 6 hours after I made it and it was 100% fine!

So whether you’re making this for a Christmas party or just for the fun of it, you really are going to fall head over heels in chocolatey-Baileys-boozy-cheesecakey love! xxx

  1. Toblerone AND Baileys! Two of my favourite things! This is the perfect cheesecake combination!

  2. Well really what’s not to love about this? I actually want to lick the screen. Thanks for sharing with YWF as well. x

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hahaha thanks Vicki! xx

      1. Jody says:

        Turned out great , I add 100ml of Bailey’s and used milk and dark chocolate instead of Toblerone.

        1. Lucy Mathieson says:

          Perfect!!!

  3. jayne says:

    Oh wow this looks too good Lucy! I have always got Bailey’s handy in the fridge so this is such a great recipe for me

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hehe I like your style Jayne!! x

  4. I was a little uninspired for christmas… going to do the usuals. But I think I have a new one to add!
    My favourite chocolate with a little extra specialness. lol
    xx

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh thank you!!! xx

  5. Lyn Blair says:

    How much extra gelatine would I need to use if I added more baileys. Also how much more baileys do you recommend. I don`t want to make it and it was not set due to the amount of baileys. Thanks

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Lyn, it depends on how much extra Baileys you add! To be on the safe side, if you add 1/2 cup extra Baileys, I would add an extra 1/2 tsp of gelatine.

  6. Christine says:

    hi are you you using ordinary bailys irish cream or is there another option as i noticed your bottle looked different than the one i have.Looks yummy thanks

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Just the normal one!! But you can use any brand you like 🙂

  7. Jooles says:

    I have made this for Melbourne Cup dessert to share with friends tomorrow. I am sure it will impress them.
    I used Tia Maria as I had no Baileys. Piped cream on top and sprinkled with Toblerone chocolate.
    Can’t wait to taste it tomorrow…

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Jooles, it sounds AMAZING and I’m sure your friends will love it!! Have a great day! xx

  8. Dani says:

    Hi Lucy!

    I’m thinking about making this for the in-laws Christmas but gelatine gives me the heebie jeebies… Queen makes a vegetarian alternative called Jel-it-in. I was just reading the instructions (you can see them on the woolworths website) and it’s a bit different! I was wondering if you had tried it, and if you did – do you have any tips on how to adjust this recipe (or any!) to suit?

    Thanks!

    Dani.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Dani, no I haven’t tried it yet!! My tip for dissolving gelatine powder is to pop it in a small bowl or ramekin with lukewarm water. Leave it for a couple of minutes, then place the ramekin into a larger bowl of boiling water (not letting it into the smaller ramekin though). Stir and the boiling water will slowly heat the gelatine making it really easy to dissolve. Good luck!! xx

      1. Dani says:

        It worked! And it was a hit 🙂

        Had to dissolve one sachet of Jel-It-In in 100ml cold water, then added the Toblerone and boiled it/stirred to melt the chocolate. Followed the rest of the recipe as usual. Already had requests to make it again next year!

        1. Lucy Mathieson says:

          Woo hoo!!!! Thanks so much for letting me know!! xx

    My neighbour made this cheese cake last night, she tells me it was delicious, her husband licked the bowl, I notice however you seem to have missed a couple of things Namely:
    1 glass of Baileys – as the maker of this cheese cake it you your responsibility to ensure the Baileys is of the highest quality possible, you can only do this by drinking some of it.

    2 – several extra pieces of Toblerone – Again it is your responsibility as the baker to ensure the Toblerone is of the highest quality and totally fresh, you can only do this by eating some.

    Quality Control is very serious and as the chef it is your responsibility to maintain QC at all times, if that means sampling the products to ensure their quality then you have to Force yourself to do so. I know it will be difficult but I am sure you will find a way to enjoy this very important part of the entire process ~ of course you could let your partner QC the baileys and the kids QC the Toblerone..

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hahaha this made me laugh!!! And yes… taste testing is a MUST!!!

  10. Maddy says:

    Hiya,

    Just checking when l melt the chocolate in step 10, am l doing so in a clean TM bowl or is it being melted mixed in with the cream cheese mixture?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Maddy, it’s in a clean and dry Thermomix bowl. xx

  11. Amy says:

    Hi,
    I have made this cheesecake many times and it is always a hit.
    Just wondered if I can use any type of chocolate bar and not just Toblerone? Will it alter the cheesecake?
    Many thanks

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Amy, absolutely!!!!!! Any type of chocolate works just as well! xx

  12. Lynsey says:

    Hiya, I noticed your method of dissolving gelatine is slightly different to that of your Baileys Malteser cheesecake. Is there a difference between both methods? TIA xx

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Lynsey, either works well (but I find the one in the Baileys Malteser Cheesecake recipe to be the most foolproof!! xx

  13. Maddy says:

    Hiya,

    3tsp of gelatine powder equals how many gelatine leaves? I find the leaves dissolve much better than the powder. I got a few lumps in my last attempt.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Maddy, have a look on the gelatine leaves packet – it will tell you (and it often depends on the brand of gelatine laves and the country you’re in).

  14. Leonie says:

    Made this yesterday for a lunch today. EVERYONE loved it! Thank you!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Fantastic!!!! I’m so glad you liked it!! 🙂

  15. Lauren says:

    If you up the amount of Bailey’s, do you up the gelatin and water? Or just the amount of gelatin?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Lauren, you’ll need to add a little more water as well as more gelatine (so that there’s enough to dissolve it). xx

  16. Val Griffin says:

    Absolutely the most requests for cheesecakes I make, it’s this one!
    I have altered the base a bit, 125g biscotti biscuits 125g digestives & 115g melted butter….this cheesecake CAN go along way in our house but it never lasts more than two days ( I have been known to have it for breakfast!) lol
    Love it.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hehehe! Nothing beats cheesecake for breakfast! So glad you enjoy it! xx
