These Irish Coffee Brownies should come with a warning label! They’re rich in flavor and moist in texture and it’s hard to stop at just one.

I remembered this brownie recipe this past week as I was thumbing through dessert recipes. I had an unshakable urge for a sweet and decided it was time to bake. Although I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, when it does show up, I want something decadent and indulgent. These Irish Coffee Brownies met both my requirements.

Baking is very much a science and takes a lot more patience than I’m used to. However, for me there is something quite therapeutic about baking. I turn up the music, usually Vivaldi when the clouds are low and it’s a cold rain outside, light some candles around the house to set the mood and then bask in the solace of the kitchen.

Although I love to sample my baking project, I don’t always need to eat them. Just the mere exercise of taking the time to bake something delicious feeds my hungry soul.

Irish Coffee Brownies are a delicious way to make the winter weekend just a little sweeter.

Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love to ya!

Irish Coffee Brownies

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup good quality dark cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tablespoons instant espresso
  • 4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 -2 tablespoons Bailey’s Irish Cream

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  • Place the butter, dark cocoa powder and instant espresso in a sauce pan and heat over medium heat. When the butter begins to melt, whisk until the ingredients are smooth and incorporated. Take it off the heat and whisk in the Irish whiskey.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix together the eggs, vanilla and sugar. Then add the butter and cocoa mixture to the egg mixture to combine.
  • Next, in a small bowl mix together the flour, salt and baking soda. Then stir the flour mixture into the liquid mixture. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Butter a 13x9 baking pan and pour the brownie batter into the baking pan, smoothing out the top. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the center is mostly firm.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven and while the brownies are cooling prepare the icing. In a small bowl mix together the powdered sugar and the Bailey’s Irish Cream. Once the brownies are cool, slice and place them on a platter and then drizzle with the icing.
  • Notes

    Using a good quality cocoa powder is key to making these brownies, as some cocoa powders can have a bitter taste.
