Baileys Irish Cream Brownies
Our Baileys Irish Cream Brownies are fudgy, rich, and chocolatey with great notes of coffee and espresso throughout—so, in short, super indulgent. Nobody has to know that the first ingredient is a box of brownie mix! The Baileys buttercream we made is melt-in-your-mouth fluffy and has a gentle, yet luxurious coffee cream flavor that shouldn't just be paired with brownies. Then, the chopped espresso beans added at the end provide an excellent crunch. Doctoring up a box mix is a great way to save time and energy, and stirring in luxurious ingredients like mini chocolate chips and espresso powder give them a homemade feel. We used Ghiradelli brownie mix, but feel free to use your favorite. We found the chocolate-covered espresso beans at a local grocery store—just check the candy aisle. These would be great with a cup of coffee or Irish coffee.
