Cheater’s Baileys Irish Cream Brownies


What do you do when you need an Irish-themed dessert and you don’t have much time?

You cheat.

You pull out a box of brownie mix and doctor that mother up.

At least, that’s what I did when I needed something St. Paddy’s themed for my Ladies Night Out group. With no flour or cocoa in the house (Sidenote: what kind of food blogger doesn’t have flour in the pantry? One who averages four hours of sleep with a sick todder, that’s who.), I was forced to pull out the mix.

But trust me, none of my girls noticed. The brownie is really just a vehicle for the Bailey’s cheesecake filling in these bars. A layer of creamy liqueur-kissed cheesecake sandwiched in between two layers of chocolate?

Lucky.

I made these in a 9×13, but they might be even better (thicker) in a 9×9 or 11×7. You decide. Either way, you have to chill them before eating. Warm cheesecake just does NOT taste good.
