Mini Irish No Bake Cheesecakes

This can really only be constituted as a 'happy accident' that came about from my mind being somewhere that the rest of me was not present at.
 As I stated in this post, I had a last minute dinner to attend and wanted to whip up a dessert. My original plan was to make brownie cookies with the pastel egg shaped M & M's. So after stopping by Target and grabbing the eggs, I came home to realize I had used the brownie mix already and ran back to store to walk in the house to find out that Wiki had used the last of the eggs that morning. {The cooking eggs, not to be confused with the pastel eggs I just told you I purchased} You'd think he would know better...haha


*Imagine *
 grown adult, silent temper tantrum. Maybe it is just me, but sometimes when I am out and I witness a toddler having one of  those moments and throwing themselves on the floor, kicking and screaming...Perhaps there are flashes of thoughts where I think they may be onto something.
 I feel like maybe once I picked myself up off the ground...I mean, can you go anywhere but up from there;) haha Just me that feels this way? Oh...in that case, that was just a test. 

Anyways, at this point it was 6:12. We were due at their house at 7:15. I didn't have time to shower and bake cookies now. So...after realizing I had all the ingredients to make a no bake cheesecake, I once again ppped back into the store next door and grabbed some mini pre made pie shells. and then it took me all of maybe 15 minutes to make this dessert. and shower. Cause that was the high point of the day to that point.

Ingredients
1 pkge cheesecake flavored dry pudding 
1 cup flavored coffee creamer( I used creme brulee b/c they were out of Irish cream)
1 1/2 tbsp of Jameson Whiskey
1 1/2 tbsp Bailey's
4 oz cream cheese(softened)
1 cup whipping cream
6 mini pie shells

Make the pudding using the coffee creamer, Jameson & Bailey's. Whisk till it becomes slightly thick and put in fridge for 5 minutes.In a separate bowl, cream the cheese till it becomes fluffy, add in the pudding and beat on low for about a minute or until fully incorporated. Then slowly add the whipping cream on low and turn to high, whipping till very stiff peaks form. 

You can spoon into the crusts or I actually used a zip-lock bag and filled it with the cheese mixture. I snipped off an end and filled the shells that way. I also found my edible gold glitter that I had bought for Valentine's and topped the cheesecakes off with the bits o'gold. Refrigerate for at least and hour.


If you don't have flavored coffee creamer, just use milk. I just love the added dimension of flavored coffee creamer. and I liked the sweet flavor this combo created. and if like me, you didn't have time to soften your cream cheese, just pop it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.

and tomorrow is Wednesday and that means "whoopie pie madness" is here and while it's been more than a few weeks since I gave you a whoopie pie recipe, tomorrow will more than make up for it as I am bringing you two recipes: Creme De Menthe and a Guinness and Bailey's.
