Irish Cream Bars

LOVE these Irish Cream Bars ! Smooth, creamy top layer with a slightly chewy chocolate crust - what can be better than combining chocolate and Bailey's ??

These Irish Cream Bars disappeared very quickly once I served them to my family. This is the perfect dessert, not only for St Patrick's Day, but any other day as well.

The top layer is smooth and creamy, whereas the crust (or bottom layer) is almost like a cross between a sugar cookie and cake.

As soon as I'd seen these bars on the Betty Crocker website, I knew I had to make them soon. So, now we will definitely have the Irish Cream Bars a couple of times, before, on and after St Patrick's Day !

This is also a very easy and quick recipe with all standard pantry ingredients, except maybe the Bailey's Irish Cream - not sure how many of you keep a bottle in the liquor cabinet, but I always have some on hand.

It took me around 5 minutes to mix up the bottom layer and whilst that was baking, I quickly whisked together the top layer and Voila ... by the time the baking was done, the creamy top layer was ready to be poured over and back into the oven.

  2. Hi Linda,
    Does the alcohol bake off? This would be for a work function.

    1. Sara, the taste of the liqueur is still very strong and the baking period fairly short, therefore I would say, no it does not bake off (replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment)

    2. Hi Linda,
      Thanks for the info. I ended up making your avocado muffins (mini-sized) instead. They were a big hit! Thanks again!
