Baileys Irish Cream Brownies - Not only are these decadent brownies infused with Baileys Irish Cream but so is the super decadent ganache that top them and it all starts with boxed mix.Jump to Recipe- Skip The Small Talk
Sometimes we just have to be indulgent, ya know? What's better than a boozy brownie with a heavenly, yet oddly easy, chocolate Baileys ganache? Not much, I'll tell you that!
The boozy Baileys taste is subtle here but good. I'm not a big fan of brownies that have an overpowering boozy taste.
Are Boozy Brownies Only For Adults?
My short answer is yes, save the boozy brownies for the 21+ crowd. I'm sure the booze in the cake gets burned out but I would think the alcohol in the ganache would still be too much for kids. My advice, when in doubt, don't serve anything with alcohol to kids.
If you want something for the kids you could try my Dirt Cake Brownie Trifle.
I am not a baker. We've discussed this several times so I won't go into it again. But anyway, I used a boxed brownie mix and where the box called for water, I used Baileys Irish Cream instead. Mmmm, hmmmm.
And I wasn't done there.
I decided these brownies needed a ganache.
Oh and that ganache needed booze.
My son was begging me for one and guess what? I told him to take a hike. Yup, he was even more surprised than me that I would dare make something NOT for him.
So, give yourself a little treat and make a batch of these Baileys Irish Cream Brownies for yourself.
If you don't want to wait until St. Patrick's Day, make a batch of these Baileys Irish Cream Brownies and serve them to your love as a decadent Valentine's Dessert. Who says Valentine's Day recipes have to be pink and red? Be a rebel.

- Place heavy cream and Baileys in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil and then pour over chocolate chips. Do not stir right away.
