Krystleeeeeee. Pour me in your coffee!


Krystleeee you remembered the dog’s ear drops. Good job! Take a swig straight from the bottle. C’mon now you deserve it.


Ever since I made those Guinness Cupcakes the rest of that bottle of Bailey’s Irish Cream has been calling my name.

So I decided to do the natural thing and make this Bailey’s Cheesecake recipe. This Baileys Cheesecake Recipe starts off with an easy oreo cookie crust.


The smooth fluffy cheesecake filing is spiked with a generous amount of Baileys Irish Cream. I used a half cup, but if you want to use 3/4 I’ll pretend I didn’t see. 😉

Then the whole thing is covered in rich chocolate ganache!
