Go Irish Brownies Recipe @pinch

Let's hear it for (green) fudge brownies! They're rich and fudgy with hints of Irish cream liqueur flavor. On top is a sweet and tangy frosting that pairs well with the chocolaty brownies. These will be the perfect addition to your St. Patrick's Day celebration. They'll be gone in a flash. Good for St. Patrick's Day or anytime! A "watching Notre Dame Women's Basketball" party inspired this recipe. What a great team! This party needed something new and equally good. Could anything be better than really fudgy brownies with an Irish twist? I started with my favorite 4 squares of chocolate brownie recipe and added Irish Cream Liqueur. A couple of other changes and an icing and I had a variation that everyone raved about. ND Irish Women's Basketball is doing really well, too. So now it's a good luck charm... we must have Irish Brownies.
