Pretty green and white swirled grasshopper cake topped with a rich chocolate ganache and airy whipped cream. One small bite and you will be transported to a world of mint and chocolate!
I’ve had grasshopper cake on my mind since Christmas when I shared the recipe for grasshopper cheesecake bars and was planning on making one for this coming Christmas but with St. Patrick’s day just few days away, seem like a better use of my time and not let you wait 8-9 more months. You can thank me later!
This grasshopper cake is incredible moist, with a nice soft crumb pairing very well with the rich ganache and airy topping. I may or may not have made this cake twice in a week. After all, we’re a little crazy about mint and chocolate combined around here….
Fudgy chocolate layer topped with an silky smooth Irish cream cheesecake, this decadent cookie dough cheesecake is the best of both worlds!
I love Irish cream! There’s nothing Irish about me, nor am I a liquor drinker, but comes St. Patrick’s day and I’m all giddy to add this whiskey flavored liqueur to some baked goods!
Last week I was making a list with St Patrick’s related desserts I would like to try, and hopefully share the recipes with you. I don’t know about others but I find it really hard narrowing down the choices, especially when it comes to holiday baking. There are SO many amazing recipes I would love to try. Probably I would, had I someone to clean the kitchen after me. Since I’m one (wo)man team, I had to remove some of the recipe ideas from my list. There’s always next year, right?
But you know what, I’m so happy I left this Irish cream cookie dough cheesecake on the list! If you love Irish cream, this cheesecake is for you! …
