Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies Recipe

Jump to recipe

Oh-la-la! Chocolate and Bailey’s – the perfect pair for a St. Patrick’s Day dessert! When I was thinking of a dessert for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner I immediately thought of Irish Cream! I love a glass of Bailey’s on the rocks for an after dinner dessert drink. Yum!

But rather than passing out a round of drinks, I thought it would be even better to mix some Bailey’s Irish cream right into a brownie mix and then top it off with even more Bailey’s in a bit of butter cream frosting.

Because I started with a brownie mix, these brownies were super easy! They were rich and decadent – just the way a good brownie ought to be. You really taste the Irish Cream in these Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies recipe! Combined with the richness of chocolate – they are totally worth the calories!

Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownies Recipe


For the brownies

  • 2 packages of brownie mix (I use Ghirardelli Chocolate Supreme)
  • 1 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream

  • 2 eggs

For the frosting

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 5 tablespoons Bailey’s Iris Cream
  • 4 cups powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
  2. Spray the bottom and sides of a 10 1/2×15 1/2-inch pan with non-stick baking spray. I used my Pampered Chef brownie pan.
  3. Place brownie mix into a large bowl. My mix came with a chocolate package so I added that in.  Next beat in 1 cup of Irish cream liqueur, vegetable oil, and eggs until the mixture forms a smooth batter. It will be thick! Bailey's Irish Cream Brownies
  4. Evenly spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bailey's Irish Brownies
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the brownies are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool completely. 
  7. You can see that my brownies sunk in the middle. Not to worry – the frosting covered up the dips. I also made a 9 x 9 pan of brownies  – that pan of brownies did not suffer the sinking action. IMG_3374

For the Frosting:

  1. Beat unsalted butter in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Bailey's Irish Cream Frosting
  2. Add 5 tablespoons, 1 tablespoon at a time, of the Irish cream liqueur and beat until mixture is nice and creamy. 
  3. Slowly beat in confectioners’ sugar, 1 cup at a time, until frosting is desired consistency 
  4. Top brownies with frosting.

Absolutely delicious! If you love Bailey’s Irish Cream the way I do, you will love these brownies!
