Baileys Brownies w/ Baileys Frosting

I try not to make brownies to often since I could easily eat an entire batch in one sitting and not feel any guilt. I think the last time I had brownies was years ago. It is by far my favorite thing to eat. I mean, what's not to love? It's baked fudgey chocolatey goodness... who could resist that?!

I was at work talking to one of my friends and all of a sudden out of the blue I blurt out "I want brownies!". You can imagine that she gave me an odd look. But then when I said "Oooh Bailey's Brownies!!", she jumped on board with my train of thought. It wasn't to much later I was at home looking up recipes. Apparently, I'm not the only one that had the revelation that brownies and Baileys sounded like a good combo since there were a lot of recipes on the internet. I took two recipes that I found and combined them into one. What you have before you is Baileys Brownie Heaven.
