Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1 1/4 cup caramel flavored chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325º. Lightly grease a 13x9 inch pan. 
  2. Combine sugar and eggs in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the paddle attachment, beat on low speed just to combine. Add the melted butter and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Turn the speed to medium and beat just until the mixture is combined.
  4. Spread 2/3 of the brownie batter on the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for fifteen minutes. 
  5. While the brownies are baking, combine Bailey's Irish Cream, caramel chips and butter in a medium saucepan. Cook over low-medium heat, stirring constantly. The caramel chips may be stubborn to melt, so just keep stirring. When just pebble-sized bits of caramel chips remain, remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk until the mixture is completely smooth. 
  6. After the brownie base layer has baked for fifteen minutes, remove the pan from the oven and spread the Bailey's/caramel mixture evenly over the top, being careful to avoid the edges of the pan. 
  7. Drop remaining 1/3 of the brownie batter on top of the Bailey's mixture in spoonfulls, allowing the Bailey's layer to show through. You will have a somewhat marbled looking pan of brownies.
  8. Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 45 minutes, or until the brownies are set and begin to pull away from the edges of the pan. 
  9. Cool pan on a wire rack before serving.
