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