Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies

Posted on

 

baileys-brownies1These dense chocolate brownies are topped with a creamy Bailey’s filling and a layer of soft chocolate. Yum.

It’s St. Patrick’s Day! Time to break out the Bailey’s Irish Cream (or non-alcoholic equivalent!) and add it to everything chocolate for a special break-the-monotony-of-March treat!

Doesn’t St. Patrick’s Day come at a good time? Just when you are weary of all the grey winter weather along comes a holiday that adds some GREEN to your life! These are delicious little brownies with just a touch of Irish Cream. I don’t often add alcohol to recipes, but Irish cream really adds such a fun sweet flavor here. If you want to avoid the alcohol, use the non-alcoholic coffee creamer! I actually made half of my filling with it (to compare) and I honestly couldn’t tell the difference.

INGREDIENTS:

Brownie:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk

Irish Cream Filling:

  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 8 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream, or 1/3 cup non-alcoholic Bailey’s coffee creamer

Fudge Topping:

  • 12oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 tablespoons butter (do not substitute margarine here!)

DIRECTIONS:

Brownie:

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Cream butter and sugar together. 
  • Beat in eggs, cocoa, vanilla and salt.
  • Add flour and milk (alternating them and mixing well in between)
  • Spread evenly in greased jelly roll pan (12 1/2 x 17 1/2 x 1″).
  • Bake at 350F degrees for 15 minutes or until done in center and just starting to pull away from sides.
  • Cool.  

Irish Cream Filling: 

  • Add melted butter and Bailey’s to powdered sugar.
  • Mix well, using water to bring it to a thick but spreadable consistency.
  • Spread across top of cooled brownies, covering them completely.

Fudge Topping:

  • Melt butter and chocolate together in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between until completely melted and smooth.
  • Pour over the top of filling and spread to edges.
  • Sprinkle with jimmies before chocolate hardens (if desired)
  • Cool completely and cut into squares. 
  • Store in air-tight container with parchment or wax paper between layers. Also may be frozen if tightly sealed for up to a month. 
  • Enjoy!!!

My thoughts: These are my go-to-brownie recipe, so they always work beautifully, and this time was no exception. All I ever do is mix up the flavors in the filling, and this was a good one! I also love this recipe because it freezes so well. Nothing better than having a dessert already in the freezer ahead of time! (plus they are fabulous cold!!!) I hope you get a chance to try them- Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! ~r
