Baking is always more fun when you can throw a little booze into the mix, and these Bailey's Mocha Cheesecake Cups are no exception. For an easy dessert idea, this one really takes the cake.
This recipe requires absolutely no baking, just some delicious layering in mason jars (or another pretty glass of your choice). Just crush some graham wafers, spread some spiked cheesecake cream, and top it all off with everyone's favorite - chocolate! I'll cheers to that!
