I just love Bailey’s Irish Cream! There is nothing Irish about me (with the exception of my first name) but I love adding Bailey’s Irish Cream to my favorite desserts to make them extra special. If you have never tasted it before, Bailey’s website describes this wonderful liqueur as “a perfect marriage of fresh, premium quality Irish dairy cream, finest spirits, Irish whiskey and a proprietary recipe of chocolate flavors”. On Sundays, I usually make a dessert that my family can enjoy after dinner. We really appreciate good homemade brownies at my house and they are quick and easy to prepare even if you have a busy day ahead of you.
Brownies are wonderful because you can add all sorts of things to them and you get a different flavor every time. I had an extra box of cream cheese left over from the White Chocolate & Almond Amaretto Cheesecake I made a last week, so I decided I would add that to the mix. Cream cheese swirled into chocolate? You can’t go wrong there! As I was contemplating what type of extracts to put into these brownies, I remembered that I had purchased a bottle of Bailey’s Irish Cream for the holidays and never opened it. I pulled it down from the shelf in my dining room and added a few splashes to my brownie batter.
These Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake Swirl Brownies are mixed together by hand with Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa, semi sweet chocolate and Irish Cream for a chocolatey, fudgy dessert that is swirled with a light Irish Cream infused cheesecake layer. These brownies are the perfect texture, not too dense and not too cakey, and have just the right amount of delicious Irish Cream in every bite. This recipe makes a 9 x 13 baking dish full of brownies, which is perfect to serve a large family or bring to a gathering. If you want to whip up a batch of brownies for your family, consider giving this yummy recipe a try!
