Irish Cream Brownies

recipe from Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary - origianl by Spend with Pennies


1 Boxed Fudge Brownie Mix 9x13 size, plus box indicated ingredients or your favorite homemade brownies


For the Frosting

¾ cup unsalted butter (12 tablespoons), softened

⅓ cup Baileys Irish Cream

3 cups powdered sugar


For the Ganache

¾ cup semi­sweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons heavy cream

½ cup Baileys Irish Cream


Prepare brownies according to package directions. Cool completely. I found a great organic brownie mix at the store, or you could use your favorite brownie recipe.


For the Frosting:

Beat butter on medium speed until fluffy. Add in Baileys and mix well. Add powdered sugar a little at a time until completely incorporated. Beat until soft and fluffy. Spread over brownies and refrigerate while making the ganache.


For the ganache:

Combine Baileys and heavy cream in a sauce pan over medium high heat. Put the chocolate chips in a large glass measuring cup (at least 2 cups). Bring the cream just to a boil and immediately poor over chocolate chips. Let sit 5 minutes without stirring. Don't touch it! Once the 5 minutes are up whisk until smooth and creamy and spread over frosted brownies. Chill until ganache sets.
