Saint Patrick’s Day is always a celebration in my house. Even though I am not Irish, we almost always celebrate because Mr. L&C’s birthday is the day before. In our college years we would host a “Saint Mattrick’s Day” party full of all sorts of fun. Now we don’t celebrate as big, since having a little one, but these chocolate Irish cream cheesecake cookie cups are perfect for any size celebration!
I love the combination of chocolate and Irish cream, whether it be in cookie, cake, or drink form. These cookie cups are amazing. I fell in love with this recipe the moment they came out of the oven. They are rich like a brownie and incredibly easy to make. You can bet I have plenty of different combinations coming using these chocolate cookie cups as a base!
I played with a few different ways to use the Irish cream and cheesecake was my favorite. The cheesecake is not too rich and holds up to the Irish cream. It really is the perfect balance. Since the alcohol is not cooked out, these are for adults only. A kid-friendly version is easily made by not using the liqueur, or using a bit of heavy cream in its place.
Cheers to a happy St. Patrick’s Day. Wear green and don’t forget to make these Chocolate Irish Cream Cheesecake Cookie Cups for your celebration!
Until next time,
LOVE & CONFECTIONS!
