I made a Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cheesecake for my birthday.  It was pretty good but a bit rich and definitely not the best cheesecake I’ve ever made.  But it was pretty!

Baileys cheesecake 006

Crust

* 1/2 cup toasted pecans, cooled and crushed (I left this out because Matt doesn’t like nuts)
* 2 cups chocolate Oreo cookie crumbs (I didn’t use oreos – used all chocolate wafers instead and added more since I left the nuts out)
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 6 tablespoons melted butter

Filling

* 2 1/4 lbs cream cheese, at room temp
* 1 2/3 cups sugar
* 5 eggs, at room temp
* 1 cup baileys original irish cream
* 1 tablespoon vanilla
* 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Coffee Cream Topping

* 1 cup chilled whipping cream
* 2 tablespoons butter (I omitted this – it seemed weird.  I put sugar instead.)

* chocolate curls or Skor English toffee bit, for decoration on top
