Prep:15min  ›  Cook:3hr  ›  Ready in:3hr15min 

  1. Line a 20cm (8in) loose bottomed tin with baking parchment.
  2. Melt the butter and add the crushed biscuits. Press into the bottom of the tin and even out with the back of a spoon.
  3. Heat the Baileys until quite hot, stir in the gelatine - stirring continuously so there are no lumps. The gelatine will take some time to melt but will eventually.
  4. Sift the icing sugar into the cream cheese and mix until smooth.
  5. Whip the cream until it slightly peaks. Fold into the cream cheese mixture, then spoon over the biscuit base and smooth out with spoon. Chill for 3 hours.
  6. Before serving dust with cocoa powder.
