Creme de Menthe Cheesecake Cup Recipe

Creme de Menthe Cheesecake Cup Recipe

 I love mint. I love peppermint tea, mint chocolate bars and Creme de Menthe drinks when I feel like splurging. I saw a recipe for a Creme de Menthe cheesecake in a recipe book that my mother had given me ages ago. I decided to alter it by changing the recipe into Creme de Menthe Cheesecake Cups. I had to change the instructions a lot since the original recipe called to use the microwave for everything. These are quite rich tasting, I think the recipe makes much better cups than a full cheesecake.

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up in less than a month on March 17th 2014, I thought this would be a perfect recipe to share with you all. It has alcohol in it and it is even green! What more could you want? Oh ya, it tastes good too! 

Remember, this dessert does have alcohol in it so it is not intended for children to eat.

You can serve it alone or with chocolate sour cream sauce on top.
