Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownie Bites

Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownie Bites

Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownie Bites are the sweetest way to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day.


I always enjoy making a little Irish themed recipe for Saint Patricks Day, especially since my husband’s ancestry carries back to little town called Gaynor Town, Ireland.  This year in addition to my Irishman Shepherd’s Pie with Guinness, which is linked here for your browsing ease, I also decided to make a sweet treat featuring one of our favorites, Bailey’s Irish Cream. This recipe is super easy and is a semi-homemade version, so you can take a lot of help from pre-made mixes. Bailey's Irish cream Brownie Bites

  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Cupcake Pan
  • Cupcake Liners
  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Spatula


  • 1 Brownie Package mix
  • 1 Fudge Icing Mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter flavored olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Bailey Irish Cream
  • 1/2 cup Butterscotch Chip
  • 1 bag Hershey Pot O Gold Chocolates optional
  • 1 Green Sprinkles
  • 1 pack Cupcake Liners


  • Assemble all baking goodies and preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Basically your are going to prepare the brownie mix as directed on package but use Bailey Irish Cream in place of water, and for a richer flavor use butter Flavored olive oil. 
  • Add in butterscotch chips to mixture just before you place into baking cups. 
  • I use an ice cream scoop to distribute the batter evenly I only got 8 servings from 1 package, so if you need more you will want to double this recipe.  
  • Bake for 26 minutes at 350 degrees, or the directions on the package, I used Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie mix. Allow to cool before icing. 
  • Add fudge Icing and top with a Pot of Gold Chocolate. Add green sprinkles for that festive touch. 

For my brownie bites, since I was taking them to a party, I used these cute little Leprechaun hats to place the cupcake liners in to make them just a little more festive and add some more green. Just a fun tip, I picked these up at the dollar tree and these would make great dip bowls too and they will hold a small clear plastic cup as a food grade liner perfectly. I mean how cute would single serve crudite’ sticks be sticking out of these hats, like little rainbows? Now I wish I had gotten assigned appetizers for my party, I could totally nail it, LOL.

Bailey's Irish cream Brownie BitesAlso, I used the Hershey Pot of  Gold hearts.  Originally I planned on putting three together to make a shamrock, but they ended up being a little too large.  So, I went with one and covered the entire top with green sprinkles. At my gathering, I was actually told that they kind of looked like little butts….. yep little Leprechaun butts, go figure? My answer was that Leprechauns are known to be a little mischievous… so it was all a part of the plan, wink wink.  Besides, if you partake in too much green beer, I think this may make them even more appropriate for the season, have you been to Savannah, GA on St. Patrick’s Day? LOL!
