  • Slowly beat in confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, until frosting is desired stiffness; spread frosting on brownies to serve.

These brownies were just as described - gooey super sweet and addictive! They were very simple to make and well enjoyed at the St Pats party last night. I did have to cook the brownies a bit longer than 20 minutes. Bravo! Read More

This brownie is deliciously rich so rich that half are still sitting on my kitchen table even after a St. Patty's day party... Everyone loved them but could never eat a whole brownie themselves. It was the icing. I even cut the butter down to a half cup (used light earth balance butter trying to cut calories where I can) and I just kept having to add more confectioner's sugar. It was a bit ridiculous with probably a quarter inch of icing maybe more at some spots.. I added green food coloring to the icing for fun. And dark chocolate chips to the brownies. They melted kind of a waste. They weren't at all necessary. There is enough going on with this recipe as is. Probably wouldn't make the icing again..but I will definitely be using this brownie in future desert endeavors. Read More

Waaay too much butter for the frosting.. 1 cup is just too much why not just eat a stick of butter lol. 1/2 cup or even less would be ideal. i had about a 1/2 inch of frosting on the brownies and still had a heap of frosting left over. other than that they were amazing i actuallly started giggling with the first bite... so sinful:) Read More

I made these a little different, but they turned out great! I used one box of brownie mix, 2/3 cup oil, 2 eggs, and 1/4 cup Irish cream instead of the water called for on the box. For the frosting, I used a cube of butter, 2 cups of powdered sugar, and 2-4 tablespoons of Irish cream. It was so good, and you could definitely taste the Irish cream!!! Read More

These are great! I did not use the icing. Thought it would be too sweet. I added chocolate chips and walnuts. Read More

Delicious! I made this in an 8 x 8 pan and halved the recipe. For the frosting I creamed together equal parts butter cream cheese and butter-flavored Crisco 2 T Bailey's and then just added powdered sugar until it reached the consistency I wanted. I had quite a bit of frosting leftover too which I put on PB cookies.;) Read More
