Because of the Irish whiskey in the frosting, I don’t recommend you allow children to eat these brownies. You can always whip up a batch that doesn’t have whiskey in it to make it kid-friendly for your events.

Don’t worry, they won’t even realize the difference in the kid-friendly version of these brownies. Save the whiskey for the adults! 

How Do The Brownies Taste With A Whiskey Frosting 

These Irish whiskey brownies taste absolutely amazing with the whiskey frosting. Adding a little bit of whiskey to the frosting seriously takes it to the next level of Awesome! You only need to add one tablespoon of Irish whiskey to the frosting, and it makes a huge impact. If you aren’t a fan of whiskey in general, you may or may not like these brownies. I recommend preparing them and tasting a little bit, then you’ll know for sure if you love them or not.

Even if you aren’t a huge fan, everybody else who loves whiskey is going to be more than happy to gobble up every last crumb. 

Storing Brownies 

After the brownies have baked and cooled, put them inside of an airtight container. The brownies will last up to five days in the refrigerator. Plus, they taste a lot better when they have been chilled for a while. You can serve them at room temperature if you’d rather, but the frosting is going to age better if it is cold when you serve it.

The brownies will only last one to two days at room temperature. 

Can I Freeze These Brownies 

Yes, you can freeze these Irish whiskey brownies. I recommend not frosting them until you’re ready to serve them. So go ahead and whip up the brownie mix then freeze the brownies in an airtight container. The brownies will last in the freezer for up to two months. When you’re ready to serve the brownies, take them out of the freezer and let them thaw on the counter or in the refrigerator. After the brownies have thought, I’d go ahead and whip up the whiskey frosting and add them to the brownies.

Tips For Slicing Brownies Properly 

Slicing brownies can be a massive headache when they don’t slice smoothly and in straight lines. Here are a few tips to help you get started to make sure that your brownies look gorgeous every single time. 

  • Use a plastic knife. Whenever possible, using a plastic knife makes it, so the brownies do not stick to the knife is often. This will give you a much better look.
  • Be sure to wipe the knife off after every passing. This will ensure that bits a brownie does not stick to the knife. 
  • Allow the brownies to cool down all the way before you attempt to cut them. I know it’s tempting to get in a hurry and cut them quickly; however, this will not give you beautiful evenly cut brownies.

Can I Use Homemade Brownies Instead of Box

Yes, absolutely! If you have a really great homemade brownie recipe, then go ahead and use it. If you have a really great homemade brownie recipe, then go ahead and use it. A lot of times, I use a boxed brownie mix because it just saves me some time and energy. With as busy as life gets sometimes, I don’t always have time to make everything from scratch. However, it would taste even more decadent and rich using a homemade brownie recipe.

How to Make Brownies 

Let’s get started so you can whip up a batch of the Irish whiskey brownies. 

Step 1: Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then take a 9×9 inch brownie pan and line it with parchment paper. It’s okay to allow some of the parchment paper to hang over the edges of the pan. That will make it easier to remove the brownies later. 

Step 2: Mix up the brownie batter according to the package, in a stand mixer or bowl. 

Step 3: Pour the brownie batter into the pan and bake the brownies as directed on the box. After the brownies are done baking, place them on a wire rack so they can cool. Then prepare the whiskey frosting. 

How to Make Whiskey Frosting 

Step 1: Begin making the whiskey frosting by melting the butter and chocolate together in a saucepan. Whisk until they are smooth and creamy. 

Step 2: In a bowl that you will need to combine the powdered sugar, half and half, whiskey, and vanilla. Then, you’ll slowly pour in the chocolate and butter mixture and combine well. 

Step 3: After the brownies have cooled all the way down, you can put the frosting on top of the brownies. Slice, and enjoy!
