Guinness Chocolate Brownies Baileys Cream Cheese Frosting

So St. Paddy’s is coming up so it was only right I bake with some Guinness, right? Ok let’s be honest I don’t need an excuse to bake with booze! Working at a British pub I don’t shy away from booze in baking 😉 These Guinness Chocolate Brownies with Baileys Cream Cheese Frosting are spectacular but don’t be scared the stout flavor is not over powering. The Bailey’s frosting is another story! :)

Guinness Chocolate Brownies Baileys Cream Cheese Frosting

I really love what Guinness does to baked goods. It really, like REALLY, enhances the chocolate flavor. Takes the chocolate flavor to a whole new level. These brownies were on the top level rich, decadent and UBERLY chocolate. (is uberly a word? it just sounded right to me)

If you are not a chocoholic these brownies are not for you. Try some Creamy Lemon Cake Bars.

Yes great minds Ashley!

I could eat an entire pan of these–I love that St. Paddy’s Day gives me an “excuse” to bake with booze. Thanks so much for linking up at What’s in Your Kitchen Wednesday!

These look great too! Thanks for sharing with us at “In and Out of the Kitchen Link Up Party”

Do these go in an 8×8 pan?

I used an 9X9 but you could use an 8X8 and have thicker brownies- just cook for a bit longer. :)
