Frosted Irish Cream Brownies – boxed brownies made with Bailey’s Irish Cream and topped with a homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream frosting. SOOOOO delicious! Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
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!
