I am a big fan of Bailey's Irish Cream, however, I mainly drink it only in coffee or bake with it. Because I love it, I always end up with a big bottle over the holidays with the intent to make a Chocolate Cupcakes with Bailey's Irish Cream Frosting or Irish Cream Pound Cake with it. This year I felt the need to make something different with it, so when I came across this recipe for brownies with Baileys, I was all over it!
This is another Cooking Light recipe that I adapted it to fit what ingredients I had in my kitchen! It turned out really fudgy and you could detect the flavor of the Irish Cream in the brownie. The nutrition information included is for the ingredients I used in the recipe and they still turned out fairly low in calories for a sinfully delicious chocolate treat!
This recipe will make 16 brownies. If you're not watching your waistline, feel free to cut them as big as you want, but 16 brownies, is the serving size for a portion controlled serving :).
Pin it! Bailey's Irish Cream Brownies
These Irish Cream Brownies would also repurpose well into a cake pop! Just sub the brownie itself for the cake my Irish Cream Cake Pop recipe! The cake pop is originally made with a yellow cake, but there is nothing wrong with using this chocolate brownie instead. Especially if you have some chocolate fans around.
Irish Cream Brownies
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda

- Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.
