Bailey’s Irish Cream Mug Brownie.
This bailey’s Irish cream mug brownie is decadent, fudgy and the perfect single serving! Whisk your ingredients in a mug, drizzle in your Irish cream, cook for 60 seconds then serve with ice cream. YUM.
Your weekend treat is here!
This Bailey’s mug brownie is the perfect little treat to enjoy for the next week. Let’s celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with all the Irish cream! This one minute personal mug brownie is rich and decadent and most importantly, the perfect size. A single serving!
When it’s topped with vanilla ice cream, it’s the ideal indulgent dessert that you can make in a minute. An actual minute!
Okay, a little more than a minute but not MUCH more.
I am generally against mug cakes… it’s so rare that one is GOOD. you know? I’ve made a few decent mug muffins, but when it comes to brownies or cookies or cake, I’d rather just make the real thing.
Back in 2020, I decided to make us a quick treat one night. You know, when we were in the thick of things. This mug brownie was born and back then, we topped them with Jeni’s brambleberry crisp ice cream. Oh my gosh – the combo is FABULOUS. I can’t recommend it enough.
Top a warm brownie with any variety of berry ice cream and you.will.love.it.
Today though, we’re making a Bailey’s version.
I’ve always had an affinity for Bailey’s. Even as a kid, I just thought it smelled so delicious when my mom would serve it to the adults on holidays. And then once I could drink it, I fell in love.
It’s excellent in coffee, sure. But I love it on ice or better yet, in just about anything. I’ve even made my own Irish cream liqueur before!
P.S. it’s pretty easy. You should try.
For this mug brownie, all the liquid is Bailey’s. Yes. YUM. If you don’t want to use Bailey’s or want to make this for your kids, just use milk in its place! I’ve switched it out successfully many times and it’s very easy and of course, tastes amazing.
The rest is so easy. Flour, sugar, cocoa powder, melted butter or vegetable oil, vanilla extract and salt. Chocolate chips for that gooey, melty chocolate.
Super simple and classic for the richest, fudgiest mug brownie there is.
Add a scoop of ice cream. And a sprinkle of cocoa! Maybe even one more splash of Bailey’s. HAPPY FRIDAY.

Do you think you could make this in bulk and package it (without the liquid of course) for gifts?
I’m thinking this coupled with a couple of mugs and a bottle of Bailey’s would make a great “grown-up” St Pat’s Day gift!
i think you totally could!! love that idea!
Hi- just wondering if this is a sponsored post from Bailey’s?
hahaha no, i wish bailey’s would sponsor me.
my sponsorships are always disclosed.
Gosh Jessica. You had me at Bailey’s! I like mine neat, & have been known to swig it right out of the bottle – once to my detriment (read as 1 of the only 2 hangovers EVER ), many years ago.
Question for you, though. How many watts was the microwave you used? Would be really beneficial if this info was supplied, so those of us with lower watt mics can adjust accordingly. Thanks so much! Have a great weekend.
I love Bailey’s and of course brownies. I need to buy Bailey’s and make this asap!
