I actually got this recipe from a cookbook (sorry don't know which) in our local library when I was in High School. When I was tired of studying or waiting to be picked up, I would look at cookbooks to pass the time( I get lost in cookbooks!). I always copied down recipes...some I tried, some I kept to try later. Well, this recipe I kept and never tried until I got married! So , I am glad I kept it! This recipe has got to be my favorite recipe for brownies.They are very fudgy/chewy and not cake-like. I made a few additions to it but kept the basic recipe the same.
Do I use all purpose or self rising flour
Came out really nice! I put less chocolate but added unsweetened cocoa powder. Wouldn't be putting the chocolate chips on top next time - they melt which makes it a little messy to carry to work for the colleagues to enjoy!
Turned out really good! But a tad bit too sweet even after using 70% dark chocolate. Will reduce the sugar next time I make it. :)
Do I have to use irish cream? Or do I have to substitute it with something else
The best. I make it with milk, dark or a mixture of both and all are great. I also put white buds on the top before baking & it makes a nice caramel type top.
Made it with khalua as it was what I had and added 2 tbsps of red cocoa. A little sweet but good texture. Everyone at work liked them. Next time will add walnuts and use mini choc chips for the 1 cup mix in.
