Good for St. Patrick's Day or anytime! A "watching Notre Dame Women's Basketball" party inspired this recipe. What a great team! This party needed something new and equally good. Could anything be better than really fudgy brownies with an Irish twist?

I started with my favorite 4 squares of chocolate brownie recipe and added Irish Cream Liqueur. A couple of other changes and an icing and I had a variation that everyone raved about.

ND Irish Women's Basketball is doing really well, too. So now its a good luck charm... we must have Irish Brownies.

How to Make Go Irish Brownies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8 inch square pan.

    In a small bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

    Melt chocolate and butter in a microwave safe medium bowl. Watch carefully. Stir to blend. Stir in sugar and liqueur. With a whisk beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour mixture. Spread batter in buttered pan.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and place pan on a wire rack to cool.
  • 2Make frosting: In a mixer bowl beat cream cheese and butter until well mixed and smooth. Add liquer and food coloring. Mix well. Gradually mix in powdered sugar.

    Prepare drizzle: Melt semi-sweet chocolate.
  • 3Frost cooled brownies with green frosting and then drizzle with melted chocolate. Score where you want to cut bars (so that chocolate won't just break up when you cut the cooled bars). Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow frosting to firm up. Makes 16 brownies.
