Things I Am Going Crazy For Lately.
There are no words that can describe the deliciousness of these cheesecakes.
I don’t mean to be so serious, and on a Friday too, but it’s true. Well I mean, there are of course words, but they will not do them justice, and seeing as it’s Friday and all, I am just plain out of words anyway.
Really, I think the photos say it all. I mean, do you see all of those layers of chocolate?? Insane!
I have never personally had an Irish Car Bomb, but from what I have read it’s a shot of Whiskey and a shot of Bailey’s put into the bottom of a beer glass and filled with Guinness. Three liquors, one drink.
Wow! That seems rather intense. I surely could not handle it, BUT this dessert version? Gimme me them all. No really.
Let’s just start by going through each layer. First, there is the Guinness brownies. Oh these brownies, incredible on their own, but even better in this cheesecake. And if you’re really looking to booze things up, you can take things up a notch and drizzle the baked brownies with Bailey’s and/or whiskey. Let the alcohol soak in while the brownies cool. I did this, but only a little, since I am not big on super strong alcohol flavors. But it definitely gave these brownies that extra St. Patrick’s Day kick!!
Second layer? The cheesecake…spiked with Baileys…of course. I love this layer. It’s sweet and chocolatey and so mousse-like. Plus, it’s no bake and comes together in seconds.
The third layer is the Baileys ganache. Now really, this is just like icing on the cake – a definite must.
Fourth and final layer. Well, whiskey whipped cream. Also, wow, all whipped cream should be spiked with a little whiskey. It’s just so fun and flavorsome.
And those are your four layers. You can make these in tall beer glasses like I did, and do layers, or you can make them in smaller glasses or jars with no layers. I will not lie that making these in the beer glasses, while very fun, is also very tedious. It sort of takes a while stuffing everything down into the tall glasses.
BUT… I still think it was worth it, the glasses just give the cheesecakes a real “wow” factor. Planning a fun Friday night with friends – these cheesecakes will give you major host or hostess points.
Now, I’d say more, but I feel like I’d just be plain annoying. It’s Friday and I don’t think anyone wants that, SO let’s just make these cheesecakes and have an awesome weekend!
Sounds good to me.
Oh but before I go, I just have to say – these double chocolate brownie Irish car bomb cheesecakes are beyond delicious. Don’t let anything stop you from making them. They are quick, easy and loaded with chocolate…and booze!! But please feel free to leave the alcohol out too. Either way these will be delicious!!

Amazing. So good! Not a strong alcohol taste though unfortunately (considering how much money you have to spend on alcohol haha). And the only other thing too is I used the 2tbsp of whiskey in the whipped cream and it all melted and never “whipped” back up again. But other than that, amazingly creative and sinfully delicious recipe and deserves no less than five stars! Even if mine didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as the pictures haha
Thanks a bunch for making this recipe, I am so glad it was enjoyed! xxTieghan
Hi! So excited to make this!! When you say “1 ounce package of cream cheese, 8” ……do you mean to only use 1 ounce of an 8 ounce package of cream cheese? Or do you mean we need to use one whole 8 ounce package of cream cheese?
Same question for the condensed milk. We are to just use a 3/4 cup amount of that right? Or do you mean 3/4 of the 14oz can? Thank you so much!!
Sorry for the confusion, yes you want to use 1 whole-8oz package of cream cheese. You will want to use 3/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
For the Cheesecake ingredients, can anyone please clarify how much cream cheese is needed? Stated in the recipe is “1 ounce package cream cheese softened, 8”. Does this mean use an 8 ounce package of cream cheese, or just use 1 ounce from an 8 ounce package?
So sorry for the confusion, yes you want to use 1-8 ounce package of cream cheese. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
