The brownies are a fudgy milk chocolate coffee brownie with my favorite caramel swirled into the batter. I don’t usually “do” milk chocolate brownies but with the coffee and the caramel they just seemed right.

Like any rich, chocolately brownie there is melted chocolate, cocoa powder, AND chocolate chips in the batter. So you know for certain that these brownies are as chocolatey as possible!

These Irish Coffee Caramel Brownies explode with flavor: you can taste the coffee, the milk chocolate, the caramel and the Irish Cream, but they all also blend together into a combination that is out of this world!

 I don’t know what I’ll do with myself once they are gone.

These Irish Coffee Caramel Brownies are a rich, fudgy milk chocolate brownie with swirls of salted caramel in the batter, a milk chocolate Bailey's ganache, and more salted caramel drizzled on top!

Ingredients

    For the Coffee Milk Chocolate Brownies:
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 ounces milk chocolate, chopped [I used Ghirardelli because it’s awesome]
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee grounds
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
  • For the Bailey’s Milk Chocolate Ganache:
  • 4.5 ounces milk chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Bailey’s Irish Cream

Instructions

    To Make Coffee Milk Chocolate Brownies:
  1. Preheat oven to 325° and line a 8x8 baking dish with parchment.
  2. Whisk together in a medium bowl the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. Place butter and 2 ounces chocolate in a microwave safe, large bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals on high power, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is smooth.
  4. Add sugar and instant coffee to the melted chocolate mixture, whisking to combine. Add the vanilla and egg, whisking until completely incorporated and smooth.
  5. Stir the cocoa mixture into the chocolate mixture until just combined. Fold in the remaining chocolate. Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing out the batter to the edges with a spatula.
  6. Drop dollops of salted caramel into the batter. I did about 16, and then swirl with a bamboo skewer. Mine weren’t pretty but it doesn’t even matter because you are going to smother it in ganache!
  7. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the top is set. Do not overbake. The caramel will make it very difficult to tell when they are done. I would not suggest baking more than 35 minutes because they might overbake.
  8. While the brownies bake, make the Bailey’s Milk Chocolate Ganache
  9. To Make the Bailey’s Milk Chocolate Ganache:
  10. Melt chocolate and heavy cream in a small microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until mixture is smooth. Stir in the Bailey’s and whisk until smooth.
  11. Try not to eat it all before the brownies are done…
  12. Assembling the Brownies:
  13. Let brownies cool 10 minutes before pouring ganache over top of brownies. Smooth the ganache to the edges with an offset spatula.
  14. Let cool completely before cutting. This took me 2 hours in the refrigerator and the middles were still not cooled. They tasted super amazing no matter what temperature.
  15. Cut into squares and drizzle with the caramel sauce. I spooned some in a ziplock baggie, cut a corner off and then squeezed the caramel out!

    My daughter took one look at your gorgeous photos and has decided to help, in exchange for which she can take the results to school. A win-win for sure! Your photos ARE really good. My friend and associate calls them “food porn.”

      *Blush* Thank you! I feel like I learn more every day. Somedays are easier than others! Dripping caramel never hurts 😉

      I hope you and your daughter have fun! I had “some” of the caramel last night on vanilla ice cream with a caramel to ice cream ratio of 4:1. lol
