Could not taste any Irish Cream flavor. I will not make again, save time and effort by using a box mix.
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.
So moist and fudgey, truly the best brownies!
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
Easy to make. Came out perfect. Irish cream flavor wasn't too strong. My kids loved them!
This recipe was not as outstanding as previous reviewers made it seem. It tasted mediocre, like boxed brownies and you can't taste the Irish cream after its baked. See my full review on my blog http://thebakerwithin.blogspot.com/2011/03/bonding-brownies-birthdays.html
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.
These brownies are absolutely amazing. As other reviewers have mentioned, they absolutely don't taste light (and really, with sugar, butter, cocoa, etc, they're not really light. I think this is more of an example of paying attention to portion size.) I tried following other reviewers' suggestion of taking the brownies out at 16 min, but they were definitely not done. Then I took them out at 18 min, and then again at 20 min. I found that the listed time gave the correct results: toothpick inserted in center came out almost clean. I have a gas oven. Anyway, these brownies are delicious on their own, with a glass of milk, or (I imagine) with a scoop of ice cream.
If you like Irish Cream you will LOVE these brownies. Moist and delicious with a hint of Irish Cream flavor. I added a little extra Irish Cream to mine.
I meade these last night- this recipe goes straight into my Box! I always use cooking chocolate while baking, and the kind we get here, I'm not sure how good the quality is. But this time i felt indulgent and used Bournville Rich Cocoa 40%, and also 2 small eggs instead of substitite. I may have added more liquor as well, I didnt have irish creme, so I used a combination of Kahlua and Chocolat Liquor. They were fantastic, exactly like in the picture!
I wasn't so sure how these were going to turn out as I made them. My chocolate didn't seem to melt right and actually fold the ingredients didn't work so well either (I had to stir to get it started). Boy was I wrong! They were soooo good! I will definitely be making these again!
Such a fun idea for a brownie! This was my first time making brownies from scratch and they turned out wonderful. So moist and chewy! Next time I will add a little more of the Irish Cream because I would have liked to taste a little more of it. Other than that they were delicious. I will definitely be making these again!
These are very moist brownies. I make one change to the recipe: I don't microwave after adding the sugar, Baileys, etc. It gives the brownies a more pronounced Irish cream flavor.
I thought these were great. I added a bit more Irish cream because I couldn't smell it much when mixing and I am glad I did. You just get a light taste of it in the brownies. These are a pretty light brown too. Took longer than 20 min for mine to get done(with the "almost clean" toothpick). I had to keep checking. This is NOT light, because 16 servings would make teensy bite size brownies. Maybe 12 servings out of this if you are lucky. But these are delicious.
