Irish Cream Chocolate Boozy Brownies

The rich chocolate brownies are stuffed with milk and dark chocolate chunks, and then the top of the brownies are sprinkled with bountiful slivers of more milk and dark chocolate.  Besides the Baileys, the frosting, is buttery, creamy, chocolatey and it has cream cheese in it too, so you know it's going to be good!  They are more than good, they're amazing!

Ingredients

Brownies

  • 1 1/4 cups 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup or 1 milk chocolate bar cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup or 1 dark chocolate bar cut into chunks
  • Optional: 1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream see in notes

Baileys Irish Cream Buttercream Frosting

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup Baileys Irish cream liqueur
  • Chocolate Slivers
  • 1/2 cup or 1 milk chocolate bar cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup or 1 dark chocolate bar cut into chunks

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F, and spray a 9 by 9-inch pan with non-stick spray. Line with parchment so sides go up the sides of the pan.
  • In a microwavable bowl, melt the butter, sugar, cocoa, and salt in the microwave in one-minute increments, stirring until butter is melted and warm, not hot.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition.
  • Stir in the flour, mix, then stir in the vanilla and chocolate chunks until incorporated.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, with few crumbs adhering.
  • Brownies should cool in the pan.
  • Make frosting while brownies are cooling,

Baileys Irish Cream Buttercream Frosting

  • Using a mixer, mix the cream cheese and butter together and mix on medium speed until smooth. Add the powdered sugar a cup at a time and then increase speed to medium-high and beat for one or two minutes, or until creamy and fluffy.
  • Stir in the Irish cream and mix.
  • Frost brownies, add chocolate slivers and place in fridge, then remove by sliding knife down the sides of brownies and pull up the parchment paper and place brownies on cutting board.

Notes

Optional: When the brownies are done, using a toothpick or fork, poke holes into the brownies and brush 1/4 cup of Baileys Irish Cream to the top of the brownies right after they come out of the oven so it can soak into the brownies.
Frost brownies as directed above.
