Bailey’s Irish Cream Brownie Pie

I’m driving across town this morning to sign some important documents. I have a bit of highway driving phobia and am very nervous.  I’m never sure I’ll make it home, so if you don’t hear from me, it was nice knowing you!  Keep on baking….or in this case, assembling.  Here’s a quick and easy recipe you can put together in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

Bailey's Irish Cream Brownie Pie
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8
  • 1 (10.5 oz) packet fudge brownie mix (Betty Crocker)*
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (3 oz) packet Jell-O Cook & Serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or 6 oz chopped semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3 1/4 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed (8 oz container)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch deep-dish glass pie plate very well.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together brownie mix, oil, water and egg until mixed. Spread brownie batter in pie plate; bake for 20-23 minutes or until cooked, but still fudgy. Set aside.
  3. Place a mixing bowl (approximately 2 quarts) next to stove.
  4. In a saucepan, whisk together pudding mix, milk, Bailey's and gelatin. Turn heat to medium and cook, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens and starts to boil. Turn off heat. Pour approximately 1 cup of the hot pudding mixture into bowl next to stove. Add chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate) to hot pudding mixture in saucepan and stir until chocolate melts (no need for extra heat). Pour hot melted chocolate/pudding mixture over brownie crust, spreading to just shy of the edge.
  5. Lay a small sheet of waxed paper over both chocolate mixture in pie plate and Irish Cream mixture in bowl; let both cool to room temperature. This takes a little over an hour, so go do something else.
  6. When cool, fold 2 cups of whipped topping into the bowl of vanilla pudding/Irish Cream mixture. Spread Irish Cream mixture over melted chocolate/pudding mixture which you have already spread over the crust; Reserve remaining whipped topping.
  7. Chill for about 4 hours. Spread reserved whipped topping over top. When ready to serve, sift cocoa powder over top.
  8. Makes 10 servings

    wow, this sounds yummy!
    do you think you could make it without Bailey’s? if so, do you think I’d need to add something else??

    Interesting that you don’t care for highway driving. I have a dear friend who won’t drive on interstates and I’m driving her to a speaking engagement she has tonight. We will probably leave very early as we have a winter storm rolling in.
    Be safe!
    I love Bailey’s Irish Cream! No doubt the pie is excellent.

    Good luck on your highway ventures. I’m not a fan either. But, on a different note, this pie looks quite excellent!!

    I don’t blame you! It’s scary to drive in Austin.

    My mother in law gets really scared to drive on the highway due to an old IH35 accident. Trust me, she makes it home everytime 🙂 Hope your appointment went well! THis pie looks delicious and I will have to try it since I always have Baileys for *baking* in the house 😉

    Of course, we all wish you drive safe and return to us soon, but hey, Rita, can I have a slice of the pie, too!? 😉 Love ya, Anna!

    Anna you crack me up…you are so funny. This pie looks great. I will try this soon. Suppose to be on a diet but that can start another week.
    I would be scared driving in a big city too.

    I don’t do highways at all. thankfully I live in a place where I don’t need too. highways and large crowds give me panic attacks. I avoid both so I never have to go on meds.
    nice pie though…lol

    Anna, you crack me up about the driving! I thought you were raised in Houston and San Antonio. After Houston traffic, I couldn’t imagine being scared of Austin traffic. Of course, I know it is growing by leaps and bounds. I think one day Austin will be one of the biggest cities in Texas.
    Love your easy pie and take care.

    Yum. This looks wonderful!

    I went to college in Houston and found the highways there very intimidating. I can only imagine what Austin is like. Take care!

    I have highway driving phobia too! (UGGH, driving in LA absolutely sucks). But I’m getting over it, as I spend at least 2 hours commuting roundtrip to work; 4 hours if there is traffic!

    Rita, you’re not getting rid of me that easily. I made it home alive. Also, I’m kind of disappointed to hear that Portugal has so many highways. Now I can’t move there.

    Sue, that is so nice of you to drive your friend! If she’s like me, you saved her a week or more worth of anxiety about making the trip. For me, it’s not just the trip that makes me anxious, but thinking about it beforehand. I’ll worry about it for weeks and weeks.

    I can handle large crowds, but not when they’re going 80 mph and tail-gating me in their pick-up truck. And I actually like traffic and downtown driving because it forces people to slow down and pay attention. It’s maniacs driving 80 mph with barely a car length between each other and never signaling that scares me. Oh, and merging…..and scary ramps.

    Well, you could leave it out but you’d have to replace it with something else that’s sweet and creamy. Some things that might work are 4 oz melted ice cream, half & half plus a little sugar. You could even try using something like hazelnut coffee creamer. But you’d definitely need to replace the 4 oz Bailey’s with another creamy liquid.
