Bailey’s Chocolate Cheesecake Trifle

Ingredients 

Cheesecake

  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup Bailey’s Irish Cream

Chocolate Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream chilled
  • 2 tablespoons Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Additional

  • 20 Oreo cookies

Instructions 

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and sea salt together until combined. Add ¼ cup of Baileys and continue beating until smooth and fluffy.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, beat 1 cup of heavy whipping cream until it doubles in volume and begins to thicken. Add in 2 tablespoons of Baileys, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar. Continue beating until the mixture has thickened and stiff peaks form.
  3. Place the Oreo cookies into a gallon-size plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin to form small crumbles.
  4. Place the cheesecake mixture into a piping bag and the whipped cream mixture into a second piping bag.
  5. Beginning with the cookie crumbs, layer the cookie crumbs, cheesecake mixture, and whipped cream mixture into four lowball glasses. Repeat with a second layer of cookie crumbs and cheesecake mixture.
  6. Put an open star piping tip (e.g., Tip #1M) on the whipped cream piping bag and pipe a swirl on the top of each glass. Sprinkle with a few remaining cookie crumbles and serve.

Notes

PRO TIP: This makes 4 generous servings. If you have smaller dishes you’d like to use, you could divide the recipe across 6 servings, and it would still be plenty per serving.

PRO TIP: We used powdered sugar in these because it blends so smoothly into the cheesecake and the whipped cream layers.

PRO TIP: Piping the layers into the glasses is optional, but it definitely makes it more uniform and less messy.

PRO TIP: These are thick enough that they do not need to be chilled before serving. However, they can be made up to a day in advance and stored in the refrigerator until serving time.
