You’re going to love this super simple brownie parfait!  Layers of brownie, Irish cream spiked whipped cream, cherries, and chocolate sprinkles! A special adults only dessert.

brownie parfait with irish cream whipped cream

Ok, ladies and gentlemen.  Let me tell you, that this parfait contains my two favorite things.  Brownies, and….liquor!

KIDDING……kind of.

But really, I feel like the kids get to have all the fun sometimes when it comes to treats.

It was high time that the adults get a little something special too!  This one of course with St. Patrick’s Day in mind.

You may have already seen my kiddo-friendly St. Patrick’s Day snack mix, if not you can find it right HERE.

Not that I don’t enjoy the snack mix as well.  This is just much more my style.

This is a total, put your skinny jeans away kind of dessert.  Sweet, heavenly, sinfulness.  Is that a thing?  It is now.

So, for these parfaits I like to use THIS brownie recipe, minus the sea salt caramel chips.

You can use your favorite boxed mix if you prefer.  Either way, these are super simple.

Definitely let the brownies cool all the way before you cut them into little squares – unless you like your whipped cream in a hot melty puddle, of course.

Now, if you want to be a nice parent and share, you can make the whipped cream without the Irish cream liquor.  Or make a batch with, and one without – everybody wins!
