Baileys Brownies with Baileys Frosting

Saint Patty's Day may have been a few weeks ago, but this is a great recipe year round. I mean Baileys + Chocolate = Winning. Adding Baileys is a good way to easily spice up a boxed brownie mix. Happy birthday to my adorable nephew who turned 3 on St Patty's day. Most adorable thing ever! 
Baileys Brownies with Baileys Frosting


Ingredients
Brownies
1 Box Brownie Mix (recommend Ghirardelli )
1 egg
1/3 cup Baileys
1/3 cup oil
tsp vanilla extract
Frosting
Stick of room temperature butter
3-3 3/4 cups powder sugar
tsp vanilla
3-4 Tb Baileys


Directions
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix together all of the brownie ingredients and put in a pan with baking spray (I used a 9x9 pan)
2. Cook for about 30 minutes (luckily I checked mine, something with the Baileys makes the brownies cook faster)
3. While brownies are cooling, use a hand held mixer and whip the butter for about a minute. Gradually add the sugar until well blended.
4. Mix together the remaining ingredients to the taste/consistency that you like.
5. Once brownies are cooled, ice, add sprinkles if desired and enjoy. 


Tips/Comments
-I loved these brownies, I kept a few in my fridge that I didn't bring to work and I loved them a day later. I suggest making these a day in advance. The flavors really come together. 
-Keep an eye out when making these, they cook quicker because of the Baileys.
