Frosted Irish Cream Brownies


We went down to Auburn last weekend, and since St. Patrick's Day is coming up I decided to make a festive treat.  My Mom loves Bailey's Irish Cream, so I knew these would be the perfect treat.  These are really quick and easy.  Just substitute Irish Cream for the water in a brownie mix and top with an Irish Cream Buttercream Frosting.  They were really good!!  You could easily substitute other liqueurs - amaretto, peppermint schnapps, Kahlua, creme de banana...... Let the fun begin!

(Printable Recipe)

Brownies:
Brownie Mix, eggs, oil
Irish Cream liqueur

Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
2-4 Tbsp Irish Cream liqueur
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tbsp milk

Prepare brownies in a 9x9 pan according to package directions, substituting Irish Cream for the water.  Allow brownies to cool completely.

Beat 1/2 cup butter in small bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in all remaining frosting ingredients, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Spread over cooled brownies.

  1. I'm a brownie fan and love the idea of substituting liquer's for the flavor. If you sprinkled a little green on Max, he'd match the brownies. :-)
