Servings: 12 cheesecakes

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 C chocolate graham cracker crumbs roughly 6 sheets
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter melted

Filling:

  • 12 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder sifted
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp Bailey's Irish cream
  • 1 large egg

Whipped cream:

  • 1/2 C heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Bailey's Irish cream
  • Chocolate shavings

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a mini cheesecake pan.
  • In a food processor combine crust ingredients. Divide mixture among prepared cheesecake cavities, adding one small cookie scoop to each. Press down firmly to create an even layer. Bake for 5 minutes.
  • Decrease oven temperature to 325°F.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together cream cheese and sugar. Add sour cream, Baileys and sifted cocoa powder, mixing well. Finally add egg, mixing until batter is smooth and streak free.
  • Add one heaping medium scoop to each cavity. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Cool in pan to room temperature. Transfer pan to refrigerator to chill cheesecakes thoroughly, at least 6-12 hours or more.
  • Carefully remove cheesecakes from pan, removing pan disc from the bottom of each crust.
  • In a medium bowl, beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Beat in powdered sugar and Bailey's. Pipe or spoon onto chilled cheesecakes. Top off with chocolate shavings, if desired.
  • Store cheesecakes chilled.
