16 servings (serving size: 1 brownie)

Flavor homemade chocolate brownies with Bailey's Irish Cream for a spiked, fudgy dessert that's got out-of-this-world flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Place the chocolate chips and the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until the chocolate chips and butter melt, stirring every 30 seconds. Cool slightly. Add sugar and next 3 ingredients (through vanilla extract), stirring well with a whisk. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until sugar dissolves, stirring every 30 seconds. Fold in the flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Spread batter in a thin layer into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Chef's Notes

For truly fudgy treats, be sure to cook the brownies until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. If you wait until the pick is clean, the brownies will be overcooked. Garnish the plate with a sprig of mint.

These are amazing. As long as you don't overcook them, you can definitely taste the Bailey's and they are definitely fudgey. I used two eggs instead of 1/2 cup of egg substitute, since I didn't have any. I also used 4 squares of Baker's semisweet chocolate instead of 1/3 cup of semisweet chocolate chips - found various conversions online that confirmed this for me. I also generally use cake flour, and always sift, for whatever that's worth.

These were disappointing. Not fudgy at all, very dense, dry and cakelike; couldn't taste the Bailey's either. Made them for St. Patty's day party, will serve with ice cream.

I love Bailey's, so I was very excited to try this recipe. Unfortunately, these brownies weren't fabulous. They were just OK. 7/10 maybe? I thought they were missing something. Maybe they'd be better with chocolate chips in the brownies!

I agree that this recipe is not very special. I like the flavor overall, but the texture is too dry and cake-like for my taste. I even set my timer for 18 minutes instead of 20 and pulled them out early, trying for a more fudgy texture, but they were still too dry.

Love these just as they are - one of my favorite indulgences when I was doing WW.

I've tried tons of brownie recipes lately and I must say this one has been the BEST. Super easy to make and eat. The whole family loved these. It's going in my Tastebook for sure

I made these for a neighbor to give to them for Christmas. I decided to eat them before giving them away. I'm glad I did. I don't think I'll give them away. We can eat them here ourselves. There wasn't enough Bailey's Cream in them. They are very cake-like and aren't very tasty. I think if I make them again I will add more Bailey's Cream. They are just a little blah for my tastebuds.
