Now it’s time for the fun part, making the Irish Cream Brownie Dessert Recipe! In this section, I’ll guide you through step by step so you can make a batch of deliciousness yourself.

Step 1: Prepare the Brownie Mix

First, take one box of your favorite brownie mix and prepare it according to the instructions on the package. Use vegetable oil instead of butter, and add half a cup of Baileys Irish Cream, two eggs, a quarter cup of unsweetened cocoa powder and water as instructed.

Step 2: Bake The Brownies

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Pour your brownie batter into a greased baking dish or individual muffin cups if you want bite-sized versions. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Step 3: Make the Bailey’s Chocolate Ganache Topping

While the brownies are baking, mix together 3/4 cup unsalted butter, 1/4 tsp salt, one teaspoon vanilla extract, and four tablespoons of Baileys Irish Cream in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Once everything is melted stir in four cups powdered sugar and a quarter cup unsweetened cocoa powder until mixture is smooth.

Step 4: Add Chocolate Chips

Pour the chocolate ganache all over the baked brownies then sprinkle with chocolate chips evenly. Bake them again for another five minutes or until the chocolate chips begin to visibly soften.

Step 5: Make The Whipped Cream Topping

Whip together heavy cream, irish cream liqueur, and sugar until soft peaks appear.

Step 6: Assemble Your Irish Cream Brownie Dessert

Once done, remove from oven and let them cool completely. Then cut into squares if using baking dish or use as is if using muffin cups. You can also alternate them with layers of whipped cream and baileys chocolate ganache in jars for toppings similar to trifle. Lastly, top it with your Irish cream whipped cream and serve!

Now that you know how to make it, you are ready to enjoy the rich and decadent flavors of this Irish Cream Brownie Dessert Recipe.

You can prepare the Irish Cream Brownie Dessert recipe ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for up to three days. Simply wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap to prevent air from entering and drying out the dessert.

If you want to reheat the dessert, place it in the oven at 350°F for about 10-15 minutes or until warm. Alternatively, you can reheat individual portions in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.

For longer storage, you can freeze the brownie dessert for up to three months. To do so, wrap it in plastic wrap and then cover it with aluminum foil before placing it in the freezer.

When you are ready to serve your frozen brownies, let them thaw in the refrigerator for a few hours before reheating as desired.

Tip: The Irish cream flavor will intensify after sitting for a day or two, so make sure to sample a piece prior to reheating to ensure that it maintains its original balance of flavors.

Tips for Perfect Results

If you’re looking for a way to elevate your Irish Cream Brownie Dessert Recipe, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you achieve perfect results every time.

Firstly, when it comes to baking brownies, it’s important to not overmix the batter. Overmixing will cause too much air to be incorporated into the mixture, which will result in a cake-like texture. To avoid this, mix the ingredients until just combined.

Secondly, make sure to measure your ingredients accurately. Too much or too little of any ingredient can throw off the balance of flavors and textures in your brownies. Using a kitchen scale is highly recommended for precise measurements.

Tip number three: when adding the Irish cream liqueur to the brownie batter, make sure to do it gradually and mix well in between additions. This will ensure that the batter is evenly mixed and not too runny.

Additionally, when making the Irish cream sauce for topping the brownies, use medium-high heat to bring it to a boil. Once boiling, immediately remove it from heat and pour it over the chocolate chips. Stir until smooth and creamy.

Finally, it’s important to let the brownies cool completely before cutting them into squares. This will prevent them from falling apart or becoming too gooey.

With these tips in mind, your Irish Cream Brownie Dessert Recipe will come out fudgy, decadent, and delicious every time – perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or any occasion where you want something sweet and satisfying!

Bottom Line
