What cases to use to make mini cheesecakes

I used individual foil muffin cases that I bought from the supermarket to make these cheesecakes.

The foil cases give a nice smooth edge however regular muffin cases work just as good and are a little easier to unwrap.

You can also use a mini cheesecake mould that has removable bottoms if you have that, they work perfectly.

Tip: Regular muffin cases work well too and are so inexpensive and easy to find. Note that you will get a crimped edge around the sides and you should place them inside a muffin pan to make them easier to fill.

How to make Boozy Baileys Mini Cheesecakes

To make these yummy Boozy Baileys Mini Cheesecakes I first of all crush Oreo biscuits in a food processor until they resemble very fine breadcrumbs.

I add them to melted butter and mix it all together. The Oreo base is then pressed into the muffin cases and left to set in the fridge for one hour.

Meanwhile, have a little sip of that yummy Irish cream liqueur 🙂

To make the filling I simply whip together some cream cheese, icing (powder) sugar, Irish cream liqueur and grated chocolate.

I then fold in some whipped cream which makes it light and delicious before filling each muffin case with the topping.

They are then placed in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours and that's it!

    If I use/substitute heavy cream for double cream, should I still whip it somewhat before using?


    • Emily

      Hi Sarah, yes whip the heavy cream before using.


  2. Lynn

    I’ll absolutely make these for a dinner party we’ll be hosting soon; leaves my oven free. Thank you for using the more accurate metric measurements! The 3 countries that use imperial are surely capable of searching “oz to cups” like I have to do the opposite for imperial recipes!!🇨🇦Boozy Baileys Mini Cheesecakes (9)
