#KissMeImIrish Baileys Mint Chocolate Cream Pie

 baileys mint chocolate cream pie

In my heart, I know I’m Irish.  How could I not be?  I love the color green, fish and chips, Irish stew, beer, Baileys Irish Cream and especially this Baileys Mint Chocolate Cream Pie.    This year, when Connie of Urban Bakes invited me to participate in the #KissMeImIrish Party, I decided not be a bystander on St. Patrick’s Day.  I convinced myself to celebrate the Feast of Saint Patrick with a Kiss Me I’m Irish dessert!

The idea for this Baileys Mint Chocolate Cream Pie started with a simple idea: Chocolate.  Honestly, most of my baking concoctions come from simple flurries of notions such as this.  I was craving chocolate and needed to make something with chocolate.  The next step was deciding between a chocolate cheesecake and a chocolate pie.  I haven’t made a cheesecake or a pie in a long time, and I honestly needed to put forth the effort on my big Irish debut.  Due to my insistent indecisiveness, I eventually settled on a mix of both: a chocolate cream pie made with an oreo cookie crust in a springform pan resembling a cheesecake (SCORE).

The base of this pie is a classic chocolate cream pie with the addition of Baileys Irish Cream.  While watching the filling thicken over my stove top, I tasted the pudding and almost fainted from the luxurious taste of it.  I could have gone to heaven and back it was so good!  But I didn’t stop there.

Every chocolate cream pie needs fresh whipped cream so I added a bit of mint extract and a few drops of green food coloring to get the fun going!  Mint green whipped cream was born.  I drizzled a little melted chocolate over the top, piped some plain fresh whipped cream dollops and garnished with Andy’s mint chocolates and green sprinkles for good measure.  What was left was a treat fit for any St. Patrick’s Day Feast.  After the creation of this, I am excited and proud to say that I am Irish.  I plan to talk to my Big Mama and the rest of my family to get to the bottom of this.

  6. Place the pie back in the freezer for 1 hour.
For the Mint Whipped Cream:

    Wow, this pie looks spectacular….baileys+chocolate? holy yum! You’ve made me wheels start turning…I’ll do a chocolate baileys milkshake or something like that (I’m feeling lazy but really want chocolate and baileys now!)

  2. says

    Chocolate cream pie is making my mouth water. HUGE fan of chocolate cream pies. I bet the Bailey’s took it over the top. Looks fantastic!

    Jocelyn, I’ve been a lurker on your blog for a long time and now I’m so glad to be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with you! You are definitely a little bit Irish at heart. This Baileys mint chocolate cream pie is glorious perfection! It looks so rich and creamy inside, and it’s beautiful with that green whipped cream and the chopped Andes on top. I’m swooning!

  4. says

    These are some of the most gorgeous photos ever! And seriously, how could anyone not want to face plant in this? Chocolate, mint, and cheesecake make my world go ’round. Pinning this!

  5. says

    You sure did score on this one. That cream looks so rich and silky smooth. I’m in awe on how you did it! I made a grasshopper cream pie that was a total flop. You have some serious talent!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Hooray! Thanks so much for including me Connie! I had a ball with this one and I would love to see your grasshopper cream pie. I bet it was so awesome!

  6. says

    Ok you had me at OREO CRUST! I love that addition to this cream pie! And the mint with the Oreo… I don’t know if I could ever stop eating! The combo of a pie and a cheesecake is to die for! Love love love!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Thank you so much Ally!!!! I think I needed someone to remove the fork from my hand several times today.

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Thanks so much Julianne! It was seriously addictive. I wish someone saved me a slice haha.

  7. says

    Jocelyn, this looks so amazing! I have to be Irish as well, because I love the color green, a good beer, and all the festive food. This pie takes the cake! :)

  8. says

    From top to bottom, this looks like my kind of dessert—for St. Patrick’s Day or any day. The inventiveness of the Oreo crust, the layers AND the Baileys…yup, I’m in. Nice work, Jocelyn!

  9. says

    This cream pie is unbelievable, Jocelyn!! I love that you sort of did a cross between a cream pie and a cheesecake. I can only imagine how amazing the Bailey’s + pudding is! Plus all that minty whipped cream. It looks incredible! :)

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Thank you so much Beth! I love that it looks like a cheesecake but it isn’t. I adore that aspect too!

  10. Rita says

    This was delicious. The whole family gobbled it up. I made a few changes to really mint up the whole thing. First I used Thin Mint cookies to make the crust ( try it! ) I’m allergic to rich milk so I used cool whip for the whipped cream layer and mixed in creme de menthe until it tasted right. The whole thing kind of melted when left out of the fridge but it didn’t matter cause it tasted so good!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      That’s wonderful Rita! I bet it tasted fantastic. Can’t wait to try the thin mint cookie idea for the crust!!
