Author Larisha Campbell


  • 20 chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1.5 cups milk chocolate chips, melted
  • Bailey's Buttercream Frosting recipe
  • Shaved chocolate (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 300 degree F.

  2. In a bowl, mix together the chocolate sandwich cookies and butter.

  3. Press cookie mixture firmly onto the bottom of an 8" springform pan with the back of a spoon. Set aside. 

  4. In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, condensed milk, and vanilla.

  5. Pour in melted chocolate and Bailey's and mix well.

  6. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing just until blended.

  7. Pour cheesecake mixture over cookie mixture.

  8. Double wrap springform pan in aluminum foil.

  9. Set inside a roasting pan or dutch oven.

  10. Pour hot water into roasting pan or dutch oven until it comes 1" above bottom of springform pan. (Careful not to get in cheesecake)
