Recipe by SNOWBABIEFAN
"An Irish car bomb is a drink that has a shot of Irish cream liqueur and Irish whiskey dropped in the shot glass, down into a glass of Guinness® beer. There are several recipes that replicate this flavor out there, but this is different in that there is no icing and lends itself to being taken to the pub easier."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

unsweetened cocoa powder
2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
Irish cream liqueur
1 (18.25 ounce) package
chocolate cake mix without pudding
1 (3.9 ounce) package
instant chocolate pudding mix
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle
Irish stout beer (such as Guinness®)
Be careful; the effects of the alcohol do NOT bake out in the oven. At least, I felt it!
It is widely known that there is an alcoholic shot with this same name, however the shot as well as this cake is VERY OFFENSIVE. As an Irishwoman I can't believe how Americans make light of the violence of Irish history. Seriously.
I should have taken a picture! The layers were pretty and the cake moist and delicious. The stout beer, whiskey, and irish cream were not overpowering so non-beer drinkers loved it too. It was a big hit at the St. Pattys day party!
This cake is evn better (I know- it hardly seems possible!) if you use half the ammt of crm cheese and substitute marscapone for the other half. All marscapone does not work well.
I was a little disappointed in the flavors in this, not very strong infact it pretty much passed for a chocolate cake withcreamcheese in it. will be making some flavor changes next time.
This was really tasty and easy (which is good because I don't really bake much). My guests really enjoyed it as well. I would probably add more bailey's to the cream cheese mixture though. But the cake was super moist and had a great texture and the glaze was really yummy.
I made this for St. Patty's and it was very easy and so delicious. I will be making this again but will leave the sugar glaze behind because this cake does not need it because it is so good.
This makes great cupcakes too ...i always make a large batch to take to the pub with us, and they are well received.
