Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Irish cream liqueur contains Irish whiskey, sugar and cream. Depending on the brand, the liqueur may have spicy toffee or honey chocolate flavors.
  • tip 2
    Irish Cream 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.
  • tip 3
    To drizzle, dip a fork in melted chocolate mixture and quickly move your wrist back and forth to create a zig-zag pattern. To drizzle like a pro, fill a resealable food-storage plastic bag and pipe back and forth over brownies.

More About This Recipe

  • Over-baked brownies are the worst! Only a couple minutes difference in the oven can take these Irish cream brownies from underdone, to perfect, to dry. To avoid over-baking your brownies, make sure that you always check on your brownies at the minimum baking time. To test for doneness, check the edges and test the middle of the brownies with a toothpick. If the edges have slightly pulled away from the pan and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center, then your brownies are ready! Your brownies may bake faster or slower depending on the pan you use, too. Typically, brownies baked in metal pans bake quicker, while brownies baked in glass pans bake slower. Keep these things in mind when making your brownies, set a timer and don’t walk too far away from your oven! Now that you have the brownie basics down, you can bake ‘em all the time.
