Brownies with Irish Cream Icing
World Famous Recipes
4 oz. bittersweet chocolate
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/2 C butter
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
3 large eggs
1 C flour
1/3 C Irish Cream liqueur (such as Bailey's)
8 oz. white chocolate, chopped
Pre-heat oven to 325° F.
Line a 8" x 8" baking pan with aluminum foil , leaving at least 2
inches of foil overhanging on all sides (this will help you life
the finished brownies out of the pan and eliminate messy pan
clean-up). Set aside.
Melt chocolate and butter together in a heavy saucepan over medium
heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Whisk sugar, vanilla and salt into chocolate mixture, followed by
the eggs, one at a time. Continue whisking mixture until it is shiny
and smooth. Add flour and whisk just until blended. Pour batter into
prepared pan and level top.
Bake for about 35 minutes, or until cake tester comes out with a few
moist crumbs clinging to it. Cool completely in pan.
Topping: Heat liqueur to a boil, remove from heat and whisk in white
chocolate until it is completely melted and mixture is smooth.
Refrigerate until mixture becomes thick enough to spread, stirring
occasionally, about 30 minutes. Spread topping over brownies and
refrigerate until cold. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes
before serving. To cut, simply lift brownies, foil and all out of pan,
peel off foil and cut!
