Blue Ribbon Recipe by

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 it's a good luck charm... we must have Irish Brownies.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Let's hear it for (green) fudge brownies! They're rich and fudgy with hints of Irish cream liqueur flavor. On top is a sweet and tangy frosting that pairs well with the chocolaty brownies. These will be the perfect addition to your St. Patrick's Day celebration. They'll be gone in a flash.

How To Make go irish brownies

  • Buttering a baking dish.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square pan.
  • Flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
    In a small bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Melted chocolate in a bowl.
    Melt chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Watch carefully. Stir to blend.
  • Wet ingredients added to flour and poured into baking dish.
    Stir in sugar and liqueur. With a whisk beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour mixture. Spread batter in buttered pan.
  • Brownies baking in the oven.
    Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and place pan on a wire rack to cool.
  • Cream cheese and butter whipped together.
    Make frosting: In a mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until well mixed and smooth.
  • Food coloring and powdered sugar added to the butter.
    Add liquor and food coloring. Mix well. Gradually mix in powdered sugar.
  • Melting chocolate for the drizzle.
    Prepare drizzle: Melt semi-sweet chocolate.
  • Brownies frosted and chocolate drizzled on top.
    Frost 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.
