I'm swooning. I must make these brownies. I've got my notepad at my elbow, writing down the ingredients. I don't think I can wait till tomorrow. :-)

Barb, I'm thrilled that you've post the recipe for your Irish Mist brownies BEFORE St. Patrick's Day. Now I can make them for Kathleen's party!

I can just tell I am really going to enjoy March with my two favorite Irish friends. WOW, these look so good. If it was summer with great roads I might be tempted to drive down for one ;-)

Barb, great post ... You gotta Iove an "Irish Gal" who likes to make sweets as much as you do. The brownie looks fantastic. I would be afraid to have them in the house... I'm not sure I could keep from nibbling.

Great pics. ... I think the second one is definitely a winner.

Barb, Thanks for dropping by & leaving such sweet comments! I bought the little birdcage votive holders at Michael's a few days ago. I wish they'd had some bigger ones. ☺ Diane

Love those Irish Mish brownies. Wish I could reach into my screen and take one off the place. OK, maybe two. And an Irish coffee is good for any occasion.
