With a house full of boys, there is no such thing as a leftover brownie. I don't think I've ever even seen a stale one.

Could you make this with Baily's? I feel like it could work with any liquor but with Baily's being Dairy based I wanted to get some other opinions.

I'll make them but the brownies will be fresh.
