Bailey's Irish Cream Cheese Trifle

Bailey's Irish Cream Cheese Trifle

With St. Patrick's Day a week away, a group of my fellow food bloggers and I are taking this opportunity to share some Irish inspired recipes. Now, technically I'm not Irish in the technical sense, if you're going to be all technical about it. But I do live in New York, a giant melting pot of nationalities, religions and cultures. Every year we have a huge St. Patrick's Day parade and our Jewish mayor and Italian governor proudly march. Besides, how technically Irish do you need to be to appreciate delicious food?

Bailey's Irish Cream Cheese Trifle
When I started thinking about Irish flavors, my mind immediately went to Bailey's Irish Cream. I've loved it forever but have never tried incorporating it into a dessert. Why, I'll never know because it's fantastic. I knew I didn't want to cook it and risk losing the flavor so I paired it with a no-bake cheesecake filling and threw in some chocolate brownies for good measure. I managed to get the dessert layered in the glasses but it took a strong willpower effort not to just eat the filling with a spoon. Enjoy!







Ingredients
1 Pan of your favorite brownies (see below for my recipe)
16 oz. Cream cheese
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur
1/4 Cup milk

Brownie Recipe:
4 oz. Semisweet chocolate
1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Stick unsalted butter
2 Eggs
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup all purpose flour
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1/4 Teaspoon salt

Bailey's Irish Cream Cheese Trifle
To make the brownies, melt the butter and chocolate together in a double boiler or microwave oven and allow to cool. Beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla until smooth, add in the cooled chocolate / butter mixture and continue to beat until fully incorporated. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and blend until all the flour is incorporated. Line a baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil and pour in the batter. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour.

To make the Bailey's cream, combine the cream cheese, sugar, milk and Irish Cream in a bowl and stir until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

Assemble each mini trifle by cutting rounds out of the brownies. I used the rim of the trifle glass I was planning to use so that they would fit. Place a layer of brownie at the bottom of your dish, layer on a large spoonful of the cream cheese mixture and repeat for as many layers as you like. Dust the top with a little cocoa powder, if desired. Makes approximately 8 servings.

  2. Anita, you are a girl after my own heart. Baileys is one of the few liqueurs I adore. Besides, not cooking this means you can enjoy it sooner!

  7. Yes! Anita, I like where your head is at because we had the same thought process over this event: St. Patty's Day = booze = Bailey's. Voila! Magic is born. These trifles look gorgeous! Brownies go well with everything and the Bailey's portion looks so creamy, rich and luscious.
