Baileys Blondies

I made one other Baileys inspired dessert this week before deciding I needed to save the rest for drinking. I wanted to make some fudgy brownies and decided instead to make blondies.

In my rush to finish baking though, I did make one mistake. I should have baked these in a 9 x 13 pan so that they’d be thin and chewy. Instead I baked them in a smaller pan, causing them to be more cakey than chewy. I still enjoyed the flavor though and I’ve adjusted the recipe below for the thinner version.

I love that you can taste the Irish cream. Next time I might add some flavored chocolate chips to make them a little less plain but these are still a great simple treat.

These blondies are really easy to whip up too. You don’t need a mixer, everything can be mixed by hand with a whisk and bowl.

  1. St. Patrick’s day always sneaks up on me, every year… can’t believe I’ve never had Bailey’s before actually 😛 your dessert series is the first thing that’s actually made me want to go out and buy a bottle!

  2. “2. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt microwave.” Maybe a bit too much of the old Irish cream there? Lovely idea though. The melted microwave AND the cakes. Thanks so much!
