#51 New Recipes: Bailey's Brownies

I was so disappointed by how my first set of homemade brownies (the bacon brownies with bourbon caramel sauce) came out, not that they tasted bad but the texture was just not brownie like and I wasn't as happy with them as I thought I would be, that I decided I needed another go around with some brownies. Like the bacon brownies these have a little something extra added, but this time it's Baileys!

Bailey’s Brownies
1 stick unsalted butter
2-3 squares baking chocolate
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur

1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease 13" x 9" pan. I use Pam cooking spray.

2.  Melt butter and baking sqaures in a microwave safe bowl. Make sure not to overcook. I do an initial 40 second stint in the microwave and then break it down into 15 second increments after that, stirring each time.

3. In the mixing bowl, cream melted butter and chocolate mixture. Add in sugar and vanilla and beat until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. 

4. Add in eggs, beating one at a time. 
5. Add flour and stir just until combined. Stir in Bailey’s.

6. Pour into greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

7. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until just barely done.
I'll definitely be making these again. They were easy, had great texture, moist and chewy, and I could definitely taste (and smell!) the Baileys, but it wasn't overwhelming. Chocolate and Bailey's... mmmm delicious!
