Irish Cream Cake Mix Bars



These tasty morsels are adapted from "Holiday Cooking Cookbook 2010".
These normally would have a tinted food coloring such as green through them for the Holiday either Christmas or St. Patricks Day,  I decided to adapt this one with chocolate instead.. the combination of flavors came out like a chocolate caramel brownie, just delicious!

Cake:
1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
2/3 cup Irish Cream either homemade or store bought
1/3 cup oil

Marble filling:
1 can chocolate frosting or 1 can cream cheese frosting ( you can tint green  with food coloring for St Patrick's Day or Christmas)
1  12 oz package of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips if tinting
1/4 cup Irish Cream

Garnish:
Whipped Cream
Chocolate Syrup

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 15 x 10 x 1-inch jellyroll pan, line with parchment or heavy greased  the pan with butter.

Mix cake mix with eggs, Irish Cream and oil. Set aside 1/2 cup of prepared cake batter for marble swirl. Pour cake batter into pan.

In a small bowl, blend the frosting, chips and cake batter to swirl together.  Drop large spoonfuls of this mixture over the cake batter. Swirl with a fork to make a marble effect. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares... Optional:  pour chocolate syrup over the tops and serve with whipped cream.

  3. Sounds good good to me. When I was in Ireland the most common dessert offered in the pubs was tiramisu. That surprised me wasn't expecting Italian desserts in Ireland.

  11. oh yeah, time to dust off that green sport jacket for the Irish parade.... and down a gallon or two of green beer, eat lots of green cabbage, green eggs n ham, kale & asparagus soup, key lime pie and all that Irish gib... heck, it's no wonder the northern rivers are so green on the day!!!
    maybe that is what I like about this recipe... it's not green... Hope you are having a great week...

  12. Yum! Even though I don't have a drop of Irish blood in my veins, I always cook a full-blown Irish meal each St. Pat's for my husband and daughter, who are of Irish heritage. This recipe may well become a part of it. Thanks for sharing.
