ADD SPARKLE TO YOUR SAINT PATRICKS DAY BAKING
A touch of Baileys and a sprinkle of Lucky Charms is all you need.
Today's recipe is easy. I used a boxed cake mix. A Brownie mix would be ideal, but I only had a Devil's Food mix. I adjusted the cake recipe to a Brownie recipe by googling Duncan Hines. The only addition I added was a tbs of Expresso flavored Baileys. I'm not a coffee drinker. A couple of teaspoons of a strong coffee enhances the flavor of any chocolate cake.
And now for the best part of this recipe—the frosting. If you could smell the brownies, you would understand what I'm saying. The frosting is an assault on your senses.
Add the following ingredients to a bowl you will place over a pot of simmering water or use a double boiler.
1/2 cup sweet condensed milk
1cup chocolate chips (I prefer semi-sweet chips )
1/4 cup Baileys—I had a 2 ounce bottle of vanilla cinnamon Baileys. It was a little more than a 1/4 cup.
If you don't have a flavored Baileys add 1tsp vanilla
Blend everything in a bowl and stir until the chocolate is melted and ingredients are blended.
Pour over brownies, cake, or cupcakes and let set in refrigerator
I wish you could smell the frosting. It's an assault on your senses.
I should have made extra to pour over ice cream or dip shortbread.
