Baileys Brownies

Happy St. Patrick's Day. Let's celebrate with some Baileys and some brownies. How about both?

This recipe is quick and easy. Grab a box of brownies from the supermarket, whip up some simple Baileys Buttercream and top it all off with some more chocolate.

These were yummy. I tried one, for quality control of course, then gave out the rest to friends and family. I couldn't keep them in the house I would have eaten them all!

For consumption by age appropriate leprechauns of course!

Baileys Butter cream Brownies

1 Box of Fudge Brownies 

Baileys Buttercream
2 1/2 C. Confectionery Sugar
4 Tbsp. Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 Stick of Butter, softened

8 oz. Milk Chocolate (melting discs)
6 oz. Butter

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare Brownies according to box directions, cook and let cool. For easy removal from the 9X9 pan I used  some parchment paper to lift the brownies directly from the pan.

While the brownies are cooling, whip up some buttercream.  Add confectionery sugar, softened butter, Baileys & vanilla.  Mix until all the butter and sugar is incorporated.

When the brownies are cooled, spread the butter cream in a thick layer over the brownies.  Pop in the fridge so the buttercream can firm up. 

While the brownies are in fridge, place 8 oz of chocolate melting discs and 6 oz of butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat in 30 second increments until the chocolate and butter are well mixed.

Remove the brownies from the fridge and pour over the butter cream in a thin layer. Feel free to cover the edges as well. The chocolate will harden pretty quickly. 

When you are ready to cut I like to run my knife under some hot water to heat the blade. Dry the blade and cut into 16 brownies or 4 huge brownies.  It all depends on how hungry you are.

These taste best when served at room temp.  You want the buttercream to be smooth and the chocolate layer to be soft enough to bite!


Prepare Brownies according the instructions on the box.
Pop into a  prepared 9X9 pan and pop into the oven.
