  • 2 cups all purposed flour read how to measure flour here
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 16 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Baileys Irish Cream

For Frosting

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 by 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium microwave safe bowl combine the butter and chocolate chips. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the butter and chocolate are fully melted and smooth.
  • Whisk the sugar into the butter and chocolate mixture. The mixture will be a little grainy, but should be consistent throughout.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the flour mixture. Stir to combine. The batter will be very thick. Stir in the eggs, vanilla, and finally the baileys..
  • Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30.

For the Frosting

  • Once the brownies have cooled, make the frosting. Combine the sugar, butter, and baileys in a heavy bottomed saucepan, stirring until the butter is fully melted and the sugar is incorporated.
  • Bring to a boil and let boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips. Continue stirring until it is smooth. Pour immediately over the brownies.
  • Cut the brownies and enjoy. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
