My husband and I are big fans of Irish cream, so I wanted to incorporate it into a brownie. I started with my mom's brownie recipe, then added frosting and ganache. This decadent recipe is the result, and we are really enjoying them! —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 6 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FROSTING:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
  • GANACHE TOPPING:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Remove from heat; stir in cocoa, oil and instant coffee granules. Cool slightly; stir in sugar and beaten eggs. Gradually add flour mixture and vanilla; mix well. Spread batter into a greased 8-in. square pan; bake until center is set (do not overbake), about 25 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack.
For frosting, whisk together confectioners' sugar and butter (mixture will be lumpy). Gradually whisk in Irish cream liqueur; beat until smooth. Spread over slightly warm brownies. Refrigerate until frosting is set, about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, prepare ganache: Microwave all ingredients on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave 30 seconds longer; stir until smooth. Cool slightly until ganache reaches a spreading consistency. Spread over frosting. Refrigerate until set, 45-60 minutes. Yield: 16 servings.
