These Irish cream brownies from The Recipe Girl Cookbook are fudgy beyond belief with a major liqueur infusion – make sure not to eat them and drive!
irish cream brownies

It’s really hard to be health-minded with brownies on your windowsill.

I mean, brownies from a box, I could probably totally ignore. No second glances or love lost over those chemically altered substances.

But when aforementioned brownies are basically homemade bricks of liqueur-infused fudge heaven?!


That apple-a-day doesn’t stand a chance.

But, I mean, these were sitting next to the apples. So I’m thinking there must be some nutrient osmosis.

Or something.


Lest you think I’m the kind of girl who sits at home on Wednesday nights and eats the whole pan of these herself instead of going to the gym (I am).

I’ll have you know that I shared some of them with my Leftovers Club partner this month – Elizabeth of Cooking with Milton!

I hope you like fudgy liquored up brownies, Elizabeth, otherwise you are going to be severely disappointed. #sorrynotsorry

Irish Cream Brownies
These Irish cream brownies are fudgy beyond belief with a major liqueur infusion - make sure not to eat them and drive!
Yield: 16 brownies
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1½ cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp Irish cream liqueur, divided
  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line an 8-inch square glass baking pan with foil.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a microwave-proof bowl, combine the chocolate chips and butter. Microwave in 30-second intervals until melted and thoroughly combined, stirring after each one. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, eggs, and ½ cup liqueur. Stir in the melted chocolate-butter mix until combined. Stir in the flour mix until just combined. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until cracked on top and a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.
  5. Remove brownies from the oven and brush with the remaining tbsp of Irish cream liqueur while still warm. Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.

  11. When brownies are nearby I can’t think of ANYTHING else! These look so fudgy!!

  16. Goodness! These brownies look BEYOND delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They look so incredibly fudgy and boozy and I can’t help but stare at my screen wondering how amazing they’ll taste! Need to make a batch {3 batches} of these beauties straight away!

  17. This is such a dangerous recipe for me to have…

  18. “Homemade bricks of liqueur-infused fudge heaven”? I’ll take ninety-six of these, pretty please. I’m so drooling over these that I’m going to drown here – send help!
    And by “help”, I mean “brownies”, duh.

  19. Pam says:

    Rich, decadent, and boozy – my kind of brownie!

  20. Lynn says:

    I am so making these!

  21. Oh my – seriously Joanne – these look incredibly yumeliscious!…I know its not a word…but am at a loss – these fudgy liquored up brownies are!

  22. Kate says:

    Your brownies look more like fudge than brownies. Which makes me feel better, because my brownies always look more like fudge than brownies.

  23. I cannot turn down a rich, fudgy brownie!

  24. Ooooh it looks so perfectly fudgy! Someone gave me Bailey’s cupcakes over the holidays and my friends and I gobbled them up pretty quickly. I can imagine doing the same with these brownies!

  25. I love how fudgy these brownies look! Love Recipe Girl’s cookbook!

  26. I’ll take a whole pan, please and thank you!

  27. Hahaha nutrient osmosis! I need that to work for me 🙂

  28. Nettie says:

    These look yummy! I do have question concerning the amount of flour. Seems like quite a bit for a small pan? Most brownies I have made for this size have roughly. a 1/2 to 3/4 cup. I would appreciate if you could verify the amount before I give them a go. Thank you!

    • joanne says:

      Yes, that amount (2 1/2 cups) is definitely correct! The brownies are SUPER thick. The original recipe actually called for making them in a 9×9-inch baking pan but I only have an 8×8. They were SUPER fudgy though, when made in the smaller pan!

  29. P says:

    Nutrient osmosis <— LOVE it, haha! Wouldn't that be amazing :D?

  30. sandra says:

    yummy – I’ll take my booze in brownie form any time – especially if they are made by YOU. And speaking of… when are we going to be paired for the Leftovers Club?? I am counting the months!

  31. Teffy says:

    Ahh brownies. Never get old do they?? No matter what, there is always one new type or topping or something I haven’t tried!

    Guess I’ll just have to try them all!

    {Teffy’s Perks} X

  32. I cannot WAIT until these arrive. Hopefully, they’re sitting around, wishing I was home already.

  33. Yes, sadly I would take these over the gym or an apple any day.

  34. whoa- these look awesome! love ’em!

  35. Faye says:

    These look so rich and fudgy. Everything a great brownie should be!

  36. Boozy fudgy chocolate bricks? I am DEFINITELY the girl who will stay home and eat a whole pan, no question!

  37. These look phenom. Gimme that liqueur-infused decadence.

  38. These look so rich and fudgy! I made some Irish cream brownies too – we are on the same page!! Although mine had cheesecake, so I want to try your version!!

  56. Shannon says:

    oh man, these look amazing! reminds me i need to start baking trials for the wedding… favorite chocolate cupcake recipe?

  57. Johanna GGG says:

    oh my – these look so dense and fudgy that I can imagine that I would eat one and say it was so rich – and then it would be so good I would have to go back for seconds (let’s not talk about eating whole pans but I can see how it could happen)

  58. Jenna says:

    I’m not really a chocolate fan, except in cases of brownies like these. Definitely going to make these at some point. Thanks!

  59. Dang! I really wish I’d read this post earlier because I was trying to think of some brownies worthy of making as a gift for a friend’s birthday. I think these could have been ‘it’. Oh well, next time. They really look amazing. Like a slightly browny-ish version of fudge. Heavenly!

  60. grace says:

    i’m a big fan of the flavor of irish cream in any application, but this one’s extra nice!

  61. Reeni says:

    These are so rich and fudgy I’m about to go into a sugar coma just looking at them! Maybe by osmosis one will magically appear! That would rock my night. 🙂

  62. I love booze in baked goods. It’s pretty much the only time I drink 😉

  63. […] another good friend- Joanne from the yummy food blog- Eats Well With Others- made the IRISH CREAM BROWNIES from my cookbook.  I haven’t made them in so long that I forgot how wonderfully fudgy they […]

  64. these brownies look super! love baileys (in any form)! 😉

  65. Danielle says:

    Mmmm! These look super think and delicious! What better combo than chocolate and Baileys!!! I am going to make these for St Patrick’s day! Love this recipe! : )

  66. Courtney says:

    Boozy baking is my favorite way to bake. I love Irish cream, and I love chocolate, so naturally these will be happening here asap.

  67. Nutmeg Nanny says:

    *sigh* If only nutrient osmosis were a fact my life would be easier 🙂 these brownies look fantastic!

  68. Melissa says:

    I love this Brownie- It is my go to recipe. Anytime I need dessert this is what I make. Due to a very distracted brain, I have made it with an extra egg, not enough flour, no salt. lol! It always turns out amazing. It’s so moist, yummy and always a big hit with guests. Thank you!

  70. Stephen Mumford says:

    When it says a cup of butter etc how much is that exactly in weight?

  71. Truth says:

    Seriously is there anyone who is reviewing the brownies AFTER making them and not just saying “omg these look toatz amazing.” I’m sorry but that is NOT useful in any way, please someone who has MADE these comment.

    • Heidi says:

      I have made these several times, with varying results. I find it helpful to reduce the amount of flour and to make sure the flour is folded in and not mixed in. I also add an extra splash or 2 of the Irish cream (I do live in Ireland after all). The brownies are delicious but can very easily come out cakey.

  72. Jea says:

    Hi, do you have the measurements of brownies in metric system? I would love to try these, but i am more comfortable weighing ingredients. I hope you can help thanks
