Irish Cream Cake Mix Bars



These tasty morsels are adapted from "Holiday Cooking Cookbook 2010".
These normally would have a tinted food coloring such as green through them for the Holiday either Christmas or St. Patricks Day,  I decided to adapt this one with chocolate instead.. the combination of flavors came out like a chocolate caramel brownie, just delicious!

Cake:
1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
2/3 cup Irish Cream either homemade or store bought
1/3 cup oil

Marble filling:
1 can chocolate frosting or 1 can cream cheese frosting ( you can tint green  with food coloring for St Patrick's Day or Christmas)
1  12 oz package of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips if tinting
1/4 cup Irish Cream

Garnish:
Whipped Cream
Chocolate Syrup

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 15 x 10 x 1-inch jellyroll pan, line with parchment or heavy greased  the pan with butter.

Mix cake mix with eggs, Irish Cream and oil. Set aside 1/2 cup of prepared cake batter for marble swirl. Pour cake batter into pan.

In a small bowl, blend the frosting, chips and cake batter to swirl together.  Drop large spoonfuls of this mixture over the cake batter. Swirl with a fork to make a marble effect. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares... Optional:  pour chocolate syrup over the tops and serve with whipped cream.

Sounds good good to me. When I was in Ireland the most common dessert offered in the pubs was tiramisu. That surprised me wasn't expecting Italian desserts in Ireland.

It's amazing how a box of yellow cake mix can bring "magic" to added ingredients. Love your take on this yummy Irish cake, Claudia:DDD

oh yeah, time to dust off that green sport jacket for the Irish parade.... and down a gallon or two of green beer, eat lots of green cabbage, green eggs n ham, kale & asparagus soup, key lime pie and all that Irish gib... heck, it's no wonder the northern rivers are so green on the day!!!
maybe that is what I like about this recipe... it's not green... Hope you are having a great week...

Yum! Even though I don't have a drop of Irish blood in my veins, I always cook a full-blown Irish meal each St. Pat's for my husband and daughter, who are of Irish heritage. This recipe may well become a part of it. Thanks for sharing.
