Truth be told, I like to think I know what makes the best brownie. I believe many would agree that a brownie should be chocolaty rich, chewy and have its signature attribute of a thin, shiny, crinkly top. And while there are many variations such as ones with chocolate chunks, a cakey version, etc. there is one kind I completely disagree with, until today. That was brownies with frosting.

Yet, here we are, before you…. a brownie with frosting. But this may just be the exception. It’s BAILEYS IRISH CREAM! How can you say no to that? Baileys makes it all better! And I am certain of this because even when American buttercream can be very sweet and dense, adding Irish cream to buttercream makes it soft and much lighter, probably because you can use less powdered sugar.

These brownies are an amalgam of my best brownies along with one of my favorite whipped chocolate cream cheese frostings made from this cake! The frosting is silky smooth, creamy yet light and not heavy by any means. Which is probably why I’m okay with having a generous fluffy layer slathered across the brownies.

The brownies itself are nothing short of amazing! Thick and gooey with the rich creamy taste of Baileys makes this kind one to never forget!

Irish Cream Brownies

  • 10 tablespoons (141 grams) unsalted butter, sliced
  • 2 cups (360 grams) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 3/4 cup (165 grams) brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (60 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 grams) Irish cream
  • 1 teaspoon (6 grams) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) salt
  • 3 large eggs (165 grams)
  • 3/4 cup (90 grams) all purpose flour

Irish Cream – Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 oz. (113 grams) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/8 cup (15 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons (12 to 18 grams) Irish Cream
  • 1 teaspoon (6 grams) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (240 grams) heavy cream
  • Shaved chocolate


  1. Heat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) baking pan with aluminum foil leaving excess foil hang over two opposite sides for easy removal. Grease and flour bottom and sides of the foil; set aside.
  2. In a large microwavable bowl, melt butter and 1 cup of chocolate chips on HIGH for 30 seconds, stir. Repeat for another 30 seconds, stir until fully melted. If larger than pea size pieces remain, you may repeat heat for 10 seconds then stir.  Residual heat will melt any butter or chocolate smaller than the size of a pea.
  3. Whisk in both sugars and cocoa to cool the butter. Beat in Irish cream, vanilla, salt and 3 eggs vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes. 
  4. Using a rubber spatula, fold in flour and remaining cup of chocolate chips. Keep folding and scraping sides of the bowl until flour is blended in with the cocoa. Batter will be very thick.  Spread batter evenly into pan. 
  5. Bake for 35 t0 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool to room temperature before applying Irish cream frosting.  
  6. FROSTING: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, cocoa, Irish cream and vanilla until smooth.  Add heavy cream and continue to beat cream mixture until stiff peaks form.  Spread frosting over the room temperature brownies and sprinkle shaved chocolate.  Cut into 16 squares.  ENJOY!
