Low Carb flourless chocolate brownies topped with a rich Irish Cream frosting. Make your own sugar-free Irish Cream!
I am not the sort of blogger that follows every trend and plans out her editorial calendar months in advance. With the exception of Christmas, I don’t pay much mind to the most of the real holidays, let alone the made-up food holidays. I do tend to post seasonally-appropriate things but that’s because I am a normal person whose cravings adjust themselves according to the temperatures. Notice I haven’t posted a salad recipe in a while? Yeah, because it’s been FREEZING here and all I want is soup, stew and other comfort foods. I write recipes and post according to my own weird whims, and as much as I try to take my readership into consideration, I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon. I try to give you what I think you’d like to see, but mostly I post in accordance to what I feel like making and eating. Thankfully, I have plenty of archived recipes and if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere and crave ice cream, there’s always my search function!
St. Paddy’s Day is coming and the internet is overrun with foods that are tinted green or contain Bailey’s or Irish Whiskey. Or Guinness. All very popular items this time of year and most bloggers have been posting such recipes for at least a few weeks. Well, I am slow on the uptake, I guess. More to the point, I can’t really get myself motivated to make holiday recipes weeks in advance of a particular holiday. And St. Patrick’s Day isn’t REALLY a holiday, now is it? I mean it’s not the sort of holiday you get off from work, right? It’s more an excuse to eat corned beef and cabbage, which I love, and if you feel like drinking green beer, go for it. I’ll pass on that one!
But a reader did put in a request for a sugar-free Irish Cream Liqueur a while ago and so with St Paddy’s day coming, I finally moved on it. Turns out it was ridiculously easy. Unlike my other low carb liqueur recipes, this is something you can make very quickly, no waiting weeks for it to maintain the right flavour. So you still have time to make it if you are looking for a low carb Irish tipple on the 17th. I don’t really like Bailey’s on its own, to be honest. But it’s a great way to flavour other baked goods and I settled on Irish Cream Brownies. That rich whiskey-flavoured liqueur goes REALLY nicely with chocolate, I will admit!
To get the recipe for the liqueur, you will have to check out my latest article on SheKnows. Then come back here and make these awesome brownies and kick up your heels on St. Patrick’s Day. You know you want to!
