Brownies are the world’s much-loved dessert! What makes them Irish is the additional of Baileys Irish Cream. Bailey’s is a popular Irish cream liqueur introduced in 1974 made with cream, cocoa and Irish whiskey.
These decadent beauties are so rich, gooey, and best enjoyed warm. For many, brownies are not just a dessert or guilty indulgence, but this delicious treat is their companion of good times. When catching up with bae, partying with school or college friends, meeting your lover, or simply while taking out some moments of peace for a much-deserved me-time, brownies for long have been the most cherished snack/dessert that people reach out for.
