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 CheesecakeIs 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.

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.

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.

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

Notes

RECIPE NOTES
Baileys flavour - This cheesecake has a subtle Baileys flavour. You can add extra Baileys (up to 100ml extra) to make it stronger, however if you do, you'll also need to adjust the gelatine quantity (by 1 tsp), in order to ensure that the cheesecake sets.
Chocolate ripple biscuits -  are a famous Australian plain sweet chocolate cookie made by Arnott’s. They can be substituted with any plain sweet chocolate cookie or Oreos.
Toblerone - I like to use melted Toblerone chocolate in this recipe, however you can use plain milk or dark chocolate if you prefer. 
To avoid lumps - allow the melted chocolate to cool to room temperature before folding through the mixture.
Dissolving gelatine - To dissolve the gelatine, sprinkle the powder over 1/3 cup cool water in a small bowl and allow to sit for a minute or 2. Stir. Place the small bowl into a larger bowl filled fill boiling water (do not allow the boiling water into the gelatine bowl) and stir until completely dissolved. 
Use full fat cream cheese - (not light) as it gives the cheesecake a firmer and creamier texture. 
Baileys Irish Cream - this recipe has been made using Baileys Irish Cream, however you can use any brand of Irish cream you like (there are several cheaper options). 
Chilling time - Allow the cheesecake to chill in the fridge for approximately 15 minutes before grating over the extra Toblerone chocolate. For best results, leave your cheesecake in the fridge overnight before serving. However, if you’re pressed for time, 6 hours (minimum) will be fine. 
Storing - This cheesecake should be stored in the fridge and consumed within 3 days.

    This recipe looks great but can you convert the measurements of ingredients from the metric system to the english measurement system.

    Hi! I don’t have any Baileys handy, could I use Kahlua as a substitute?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely!!

    Hi Lucy!

    I love this cheesecake SO much and have made it many times. I was just wondering if you have an amendment to make it without the baileys? I want to make it for a Christmas dessert but can’t have any alcohol in it…and also don’t want to miss out on a change to eat it :p

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Dani, I’ve got a super similar Toblerone cheesecake recipe that will be posted here on the 9th December! It has no alcohol in it! xx
