Okay my foodie friends, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to switch things up a bit, here are some variations and substitutions that might interest you.

Firstly, for those of you who aren’t fans of brownies, you can easily use this recipe as a base for cakes or cupcakes. Simply adjust the baking time accordingly.

Now for the ingredient substitutions – let’s talk about the Irish cream liqueur. If Bailey’s Irish Cream isn’t your thing, you could try other cream liqueurs such as Kahlúa or Amarula. And if you prefer a non-alcoholic version, replace the liqueur with heavy cream mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

For the cocoa powder, use unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder instead of the regular unsweetened cocoa powder for a richer chocolate flavor.

Looking to add some crunch? Try folding in 1/2 to 3/4 cup of chopped nuts into the batter before baking. Walnuts and pecans would be great options.

And lastly, if you’re more of a frosting person than a ganache person, go ahead and frost these bad boys with some creamy Irish cream frosting made with cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and Irish Cream. Trust me, it’ll be divine.

Remember foodies, experimenting is half the fun of cooking! So feel free to play around with these variations and substitutions until you find the perfect version that suits your taste buds.

Now that you’ve baked a batch of irresistible Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies, the big question is: how will you serve them? Trust me, there are endless options when it comes to serving and pairing these delicious brownies.

For starters, you can serve them warm with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or a generous drizzle of homemade cream sauce made with heavy cream, powdered sugar, and Baileys Irish Cream. This super indulgent cream sauce blends perfectly with the richness of the brownies and adds an extra boozy kick.

If you want to take things up a notch, try serving brownies with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top. The creamy vanilla flavor balances out the bold taste of the Irish cream and creates a perfect texture combination.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Who doesn’t love a rich and indulgent treat like Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies? The best part about this recipe is that you can make it ahead of time and store it for later consumption. Here are some tips and tricks to ensure that your brownies remain as fresh and delicious as when you first made them.


You can easily make the brownies ahead of time, up to 2 days in advance. Simply let them cool completely on a wire rack and then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Refrigerate the wrapped brownies until you’re ready to serve them.


Storing your Irish Cream Brownies properly is key to maintain their taste and texture. You can store them at room temperature or in the refrigerator. If you live in a humid climate, it’s best to refrigerate them to keep them from getting too moist. Be sure to keep them in an airtight container to prevent air from drying out the edges of the brownies.


Whether you want to warm up cold brownies or enjoy them freshly heated, reheating brownies is an easy process. To reheat them, simply wrap individual pieces in a damp paper towel and microwave for 10-15 seconds. This method works great if you only need a small portion of brownie warmed up. You can also pop the whole tray back into the oven for a few minutes to warm up an entire batch of brownies.

With these tips, you can make your Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies ahead of time without sacrificing the quality of this decadent dessert. The boozy Baileys flavor makes these brownies extra special and a definite crowd pleaser every time!

Creating the perfect brownie is part science and part intuition. When making Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies, it’s important to remember a few tips that will help you achieve the best possible outcome. Here are some tips to follow to make sure that your brownies are rich, fudgy and have just the right amount of boozy Baileys flavor.

1. Use high-quality ingredients

The quality of your ingredients will significantly affect the quality of your brownies. Make sure to use high-quality cocoa powder, unsalted butter, Baileys Irish Cream, and chocolate chips. Don’t skimp on the good stuff!

2. Don’t overmix your batter

Overmixing your brownie batter can lead to dense, tough brownies. Once everything is combined in your mixing bowl or food processor, stop mixing! Your batter should look smooth and glossy.

3. Grease your pan well

Grease your baking dish with butter and dust with flour or cocoa powder so that your brownies don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. This ensures perfect cutting and serving.

4. Be precise with measurements

Measuring ingredients accurately is essential when making baked goods like brownies from scratch. Use measuring cups and spoons for liquids and solids, ensuring you are measuring each ingredient correctly.

5. Add espresso powder to enhance chocolate flavor

Espresso powder enhances the chocolate flavor in baked goods by bringing out their more nuanced cocoa notes. You only need a little bit, but adding just a pinch of espresso powder to the recipe gives it an extra pop of chocolatey goodness!

6. Let them cool completely

Once you’ve removed your freshly baked brownies from the oven, it may be tempting to dig in immediately – but resist! Letting them cool completely helps set up the texture of the brownies properly before cutting and serving.

Follow these tips for perfect Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies every time!
