whiskey chocolate cheese cake

As it was Father’s Day on Sunday, we had lunch at my in-laws. I was asked to bring dessert…I must mention there were 16 adults and 2 children…I thought long and hard as to what one takes for so many people. I finally decided to look through my Le Creuset recipes and stumbled upon an Irish whiskey chocolate cheese cake and thought…yum yum! Decadent but yum!

After making it I can say…it wasn’t as difficult as I expected…And it tasted amazing but is very rich. I will definitely be making it again!
