Go Irish Brownies
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
- Preheat 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.
- Make frosting: In a mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until well mixed and smooth.
- Add liquor and food coloring. Mix well. Gradually mix in powdered sugar.
- Prepare drizzle: Melt semi-sweet chocolate.
- 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.
