Ingredients
 

Base:

  • 250 g ( cups) Oreos
  • 40 g ( cups) unsalted butter

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 600 g (2⅔ cups) cream cheese (full-fat)
  • 300 ml ( cups) heavy cream (e.g. double cream)
  • 100 g (¾ cups) confectioners sugar (icing sugar)
  • 50 ml (3 tablespoon) Baileys or other Irish cream liquor

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 75 ml ( cups) heavy cream (e.g. double cream)
  • 40 ml ( tablespoon) Baileys or other Irish cream liquor
  • 150 g (¾ cups) dark chocolate

Instructions
 

Base:

  • Place the biscuits into a food processor or blender and whizz up until you get small crumbs. Tip these into a mixing bowl.
  • Melt the butter in a microwave and pour this over the crushed biscuits. Mix these together until combined.
  • Press the biscuit mix into a greased and lined tin (see tips), using the back of a spoon to help firmly press down. Put this in the freezer while making the cheesecake filling.

Cheesecake Filling:

  • Whip the cream for several minutes, using an electric mixer or stand mixer, until it forms soft peaks.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth and fluffy, then add the icing sugar and Baileys and continue to beat together until just combined.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the Baileys mix until smooth.
  • Spread the filling evenly over the biscuit base, then cover the tin with cling film and refrigerate for at least 2hrs or overnight. After this has set and is firm to touch, make the chocolate ganache.

Chocolate Ganache:

  • Break up the chocolate into a heatproof bowl.
  • Heat the cream and Baileys in the microwave until almost boiling (30secs at a time) and pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate, allowing this to sit for 2-3mins.
  • Stir the ganache until smooth. If some pieces of chocolate remain un-melted, heat the mix in the microwave for 10secs and stir again. Repeat until your ganache is smooth and lump-free.
  • Allow the ganache to cool for 5mins, then pour this over the set cheesecake and refrigerate for 15mins.
  • Add any additional optional decorations, such as swirls of whipped cream, grated chocolate, cocoa powder dusting, etc. and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
