Boozy Shamrock No Bake Cheesecake

No Bake Cheesecake to make your St. Paddy's Day fun and festive. The time includes freezing overnight so don't panic it's actually pretty easy to make.

Ingredients

2
cups ground (through a food processor) Cocoa Puffs™ Cereal
1/2
cup shamrock shaped sprinkles (can be found on the internet and some craft stores)
2
tablespoon granulated sugar
8
tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
6
tablespoon crème de menthe liquor
1
envelope unflavored gelatin
2 1/2
cups cups heavy whipping cream, divided
10
ounces white chocolate, chopped
24
ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1
cup granulated sugar
3
drops food coloring

Directions

  • 1 FOR THE CRUST:
  • 2 Combine Cocoa Puff™ crumbs, sprinkles, and 2 tbsp sugar in a large bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined and sprinkles are evenly dispersed.
  • 3 Then pour in the butter and mix until all the crumbs are moistened.
  • 4 Pour crumbs into an 8 or 9-inch springform pan; press tightly and evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the springform pan. Set aside.
  • 5 FOR THE CHEESECAKE:
  • 6 In a large bowl, combine the crème de menthe and gelatin; let stand for 2 minutes.
  • 7 Bring 1/2 cup cream to a simmer in a small saucepan. Remove from heat, and add white chocolate, stirring until smooth. Stir in the gelatin mixture, and allow to cool.
  • 8 In a large bowl (or use a stand mixer), beat cream cheese and 1 c. sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until combined.
  • 9 Slowly beat cooled white chocolate mixture into the cream cheese mixture. In a large bowl, beat remaining cups cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold into white chocolate mixture.
  • 10 Divide the batter in half. Add a few drops of green food coloring to the one batter and stir until fully incorporated.
  • 11 Pour a layer of white (1/2 the white batter). Put in freezer for 5 minutes.
  • 12 Remove and add 1/2 green and the remaining white on top of it and swirl with knife to create swirl effect. Freeze for 5 minutes.
  • 13 Then add the last bit of green batter on top. Spread with a spatula to make smooth.
  • 14 Cover and freeze over night.
  • 15 Decorate with whipped cream (I spiked mine with more crème de menthe) and extra sprinkles if you desire.
  • 16 Remove from freezer and gently run a knife around the edges of the pan to release the crust from the side of the pan.
  • 17 Cut into wedges with a knife that has been dipped into hot water.

Boozy Mint Cheesecake

As prepared by Baker Peabody,

What to do on St. Patrick's Day?


I’m pretty sure if you ask anyone what you are supposed to do on St. Patrick’s Day, everyone will say… call your mom and tell her you love her (you should do that every day)… no silly, they will say DRINK! And while green beer may be fun to look at, it doesn’t taste all that good to me. However, I do love shamrock shakes that are spiked with Crème de Mente. Then bam it hit me… make a dessert to honor shamrock shakes.

This Boozy Shamrock No Bake Cheesecake idea came from a version (strawberry) I made on my own blog for my fiancés birthday (but hahaha that one was pink… men love pink, right?). It was such a hit I decided to do a version for St. Patty’s Day. This one was just as much of a hit. I was lazy and didn’t check the craft stores to see if they had shamrock sprinkles, I’m guessing they do, but I just found some on line and ordered.

While it does have to set up overnight, that just makes it the perfect make ahead dessert especially because it is no bake!

Time to make the cheesecake!




Combine ground Cocoa Puffs, shamrocks, and sugar. Pour in the melted butter. Stir and then press down into a prepared springform pan.

 



Bloom the gelatin in the booze and melt the white chocolate with some cream.

 



In a bowl (using an electric mixer) or using a stand mixer beat cream cheese and sugar. Then add the white chocolate, gelatin mixture, and whipped cream and beat it up.

Divide the batter in half. Add a few drops of green food coloring to the one batter and stir until fully incorporated.
