Baileys Brownies

It’s clean out the pantry time around these parts. Moving across the country has a different feel than moving across town. Every little thing matters where space is concerned. So I have to ask myself ‘is this something I really need?’ about every little thing.

Yesterday as I was sorting and cleaning the kitchen I came across some baking chocolate. Which lead to me wondering what I ever used this for which lead to me thinking about brownies.

One thing I love about Christmas is getting up in the morning with Baileys coffee and cinnamon rolls. It’s one of the only things I love about Christmas. Long story. I’m not a Christmas fan.

Now since I have the Baileys in the house I’ll usually make these Brownies around NYE. Scrabble and Brownies and an evening with the kids? Best things ever. Sad that won’t happen this year since we’ll be in the middle of our cross country move. Maybe we’ll do a NYE do over in Phoenix…

Baileys Brownies

Baileys Brownies

  • 3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream
  • 2/3 cup flour (self rising cake flour works amazingly well for this but is optional)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350º

Grease a 9in square pan.

Melt the butter and chocolate together and let cool. Mix well eggs and sugar together (I do this until it’s light in color). Add butter/chocolate and Baileys to the eggs and sugar mixture. Then add flour and chocolate chips with a pinch of salt. Pour into your greased pan and bake for 20 minutes at 350º.

Drizzle

  • 3 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream

Once the brownies are done take them out and let cool. Pierce with a toothpick and then drizzle with Baileys.

Frosting

  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 4 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar

Combine soft butter and Baileys then little by little add the sugar. I add until I get the right consistency and taste. Once those brownies are completely cooled. It’s hard to wait, I know. Frost and devour!
