Brownie Ingredients

1 (1 pound 3.8-ounce) package fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur
2 eggs

Frosting Ingredients

1/2 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
2 cups confectioners' (powdered) sugar
2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 to 3 teaspoons milk

Glaze Ingredients

1 ounce semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon butter or margarine


Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease bottom only of a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with Pan Release or baking spray with flour.

In large bowl, combine all brownie ingredients; beat 50 strokes with spoon. Spread in greased pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until brownies are set and begin to pull away from sides of pan. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool 45 minutes or until completely cooled.

Beat 1/2 cup butter in small bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in all remaining frosting ingredients, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Spread over cooled brownies.

Place glaze ingredients in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds; stir until melted and smooth. Drizzle over frosted brownies. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into bars.

Additional Information

Irish cream liqueur contains Irish whiskey, sugar and cream. Depending on the brand, the liqueur may have spicy toffee or honey chocolate flavors.

Brownies are done when edges look dry and start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Bake the brownies for the minimum time recommended, and then check their edges. Remove the brownies from the oven as soon as the edges are done; overbaked brownies are dry and hard.
