Bailey's Chocolate Chip Brownies
So in light of St. Patrick's Day today I thought I'd bake something Irish related. Now I know brownies are not an Irish dessert but who said you can't add Bailey's to brownies?! There's only one thing better than normal brownies... SPIKED brownies!
150g of flour
120g of unsalted butter
250g of sugar (granulated)
80g of cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 medium eggs
1 handful of chocolate chips
So simply preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius. You can grease a baking pan with oil or butter but I prefer just to line it with baking paper so you don't need to use oil and the pan won't be so hard to wash after baking.
Melt the butter in a saucepan on medium heat and combine the Baileys, cocoa powder, sugar and salt into the butter and let this cool for 5 minutes or so until the mixture is so longer hot. Once the mixture has cooled down, add two eggs and whisk until the mixture is all combined and smooth. Then pour the mixture into a medium mixing bowl with the flour and combine the liquid to the flour. Once the mixture is smooth and you can no longer see bits of flour, pour it into the baking pan and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 15-20 minutes depending on texture preference. If you like it a little gooey bake it for 15 minutes and if you like it more solid and cakey bake for 20 minutes. You can check this by putting a toothpick into the brownie. As long as you see a few crumbs are stuck onto the toothpick, the brownie will be ready to leave the oven. Cool the brownie down for 15 minutes then consume or cut to your own liking!
This is a great recipe as it does not require a lot of butter and can be made in less than a hour! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
