Meh. Made these for St. Paddy's Day. The frosting is the best part, but by no means would I consider it the "star" of the show (it's good, but not "stellar-out of this world-good"). The brownie part tastes just like that - a basic, fudgy brownie (I used Pillsbury fudge brownie mix). The Bailey's added nothing to the brownie itself and was a total waste of an expensive ingredient, IMHO. I could detect the slightest Irish cream taste in the frosting. It wasn't overpowering in the least and complemented the brownie nicely. NOTE: If you do not have brewed coffee to add to the frosting (like me), Kahlua works fine. My only other change was omitting the toffee chips. I didn't have any and they seemed out of place anyways. After having tried many frosted brownie recipes, I've come to the conclusion that I prefer mine plain. Basic brownies are delicious as is. They need no enhancements to make them better. My hubs and I agree that when the craving strikes, we'll stick with what works best. Thanks anyways, Kim! :-)
