Notes on Ingredients

For this recipe, you will need:

  • Brownie mix: Opt for a 20-ounce package for the perfect balance.
  • Irish cream liqueur: Adds a smooth, creamy flavor. You can substitute Kahlua if desired.
  • Vegetable oil: Keeps the brownies moist.
  • Eggs: Bind the ingredients together.
  • Milk: Enhances the texture of the frosting.
  • Brewed coffee: Intensifies the chocolate flavor.
  • Butter: For a rich and creamy frosting.
  • Confectioners’ sugar: Sweetens the frosting.
  • Vanilla extract: Adds depth to the flavor.
  • Toffee baking bits: Optional, but they add a delightful crunch.

How to Make Irish Cream Brownies

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan to prevent sticking.
  2. Mix and Bake: In a large bowl, stir together the brownie mix, ½ cup Irish cream liqueur, vegetable oil, and eggs. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Prepare the Frosting: In a small, microwave-safe bowl, combine the milk, 2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur, and brewed coffee. Microwave on high until the mixture boils, then set aside to cool.
  4. Make the Frosting: Beat the butter and confectioners’ sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the vanilla extract and cooled Irish cream mixture, and beat until well combined. Spread the frosting evenly over the cooled brownies. Sprinkle with toffee bits if using.

How to Serve Irish Cream Brownies

These brownies are best served at room temperature, allowing the flavors to meld perfectly. Cut them into squares and arrange them on a dessert plate or party platter. Pair with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk for a delightful treat.

How to Store Irish Cream Brownies

To store, place the brownies in an airtight container. They will keep at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer storage, refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, let them come to room temperature or warm them slightly in the microwave.
