Dress up your brownies with creamy Irish creme!
Meet my new favorite brownies. Seriously.
I actually made these twice last week. Yes, twice. The first time, the brownies were delicious, but, the pictures were, well, stinky. They were so good, so, I made them again. To re-shoot pictures,and honestly,eat them again. I love them.
You start out with a basic box of brownie mix ( I think mine was milk chocolate) and then, add Irish creme to them. Now, you can use an Irish creme liqueur (ex: Bailey's), however, my are non-alcoholic. I opted for an Irish creme coffee creamer.
The Irish creme give the brownies and frosting a wonderful taste and makes the frosting really creamy. Yum.Yum and yum.
Just a few side notes: the first batch of brownies I made were with 2 eggs. The second batch had 3 eggs. They were both delicious, but,the 2nd batch were more cake-like than the first. Use 2 or 3 eggs, depending on how you like your brownie consistency. Both options will give you a fabulous brownie. Also, green food coloring and topping with a few chocolate chips is totally optional. They both were added just for a little fun!
