Happy St Patrick’s Day!

I figured for St Patty’s Day I would create another something with my homemade Baileys Irish cream.

This isn’t your typical blondie – brownie consistency. I’ve had three votes they may be better. I am developing a fudge recipe for another project, and got to thinking about the blondie recipe I was making for you guys.

The fluffiest, melt in your mouth blondie was born. The powdered sugar makes these so light and honestly, melty.

and if you still need chocolate?

Go for it.

fluffy Irish cream blondies

gluten, soy and dairy free, vegan

1/2 cup butter (Earth Balance soy free)
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons Baileys (homemade)
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla paste
1 egg (Ener-G replacer)
pinch sea salt
2 cups flour (gluten free all purpose)

In saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in sifted powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until fully dissolved into butter. Stir in Baileys, vanilla paste and (prepared) egg. In mixing bowl, combine flour and sea salt, stir in Baileys/butter mixture. Transfer to a prepared 8×8 baking pan, bake at 350 for 30 minutes – inserted toothpick should come clean.

Pin It

The only thing that makes these blondies remotely appropriate for St Patty’s Day? The Irish cream.

Another almost St Patty’s recipe?
Reuben rolls with homemade thousand island.

That’s about all I’ve got! I have plenty of green recipes to share, but I wouldn’t know which ones to choose. Plus, I did that last year – green food for St Patty’s Day.

Do you make anything traditional for St Patty’s Day? Are you celebrating?

That’s right… keep pouring the chocolate.

Blondies are my favorite! I’m glad you didn’t try and tint them green or something for St. Paddy’s day – they look perfect just how they are!

I bet you could make some bailey’s ice cream and a whiskey sauce to smother it in. I love how you are smothering that blondie with chocolate. Keep on pouring darlin’.

Wow, the contrast of the light blondie and the dark chocolate is amazing. Reminds me of a turnip puree with balsamic reduction I’ve once seen in a photo (for some reason, it stuck with me, probably because it looked so unusual) … Very cool! :)

I agree, the contrast of dark and light is so appealing here!! and the fluffiness is out of this world! I think we need smella-vision LOL.

I went out with my inlaws, and had a fish sandwich :) Not very St Patty’s day, but it was delicious :)

Even without trying them I already vote them better—I usually find blondies to be too dense… and reubens are Irish? WHO KNEW? ;)
