irish coffee blondie recipe

This week was a doozy. On so many levels, it was just bad. I cracked my iPhone and had to replace it, I cracked a tooth and need to get a crown, William was sick, Clay was sick, things that needed to get done did not, the list goes on. And then, I remembered that tonight we lose a precious hour of sleep. Normally, this fact would make me sad. Sleeping is just about my favorite thing in the world to do, besides cook of course. It is safe to say that I am not a morning person. But now that I am a food photographer, instead of making me sad, I am thrilled to have an extra hour of sunlight! This means that I do not need to make dinner at a ridiculuosly early hour and chase the light. We can eat dinner at dinnertime, it truly is the little things in life.

I was flipping through the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living and spotted these Irish Coffee Blondies. Let’s just say that it is safer for me to indulge my Irish Coffee cravings in blondie form than to drink it. The last time I had Irish Coffee, I had some very generous pourers. Not only was I hungover the next day from drinking them, I was shaking from all of the caffeine. It was a long day. These blondies have all of the flavor of an Irish Coffee minus the headaches and the shakes.

These are easy to throw together and I had everything in the house. My kind of recipe.

  1. Wow these blondies look so good! It doesn’t sound like you’ve had much fun this week, but I agree that the extra hour of daylight is something to enjoy. We’re only a few weeks away from losing daylight saving in Australia. I do miss it when it’s gone.

  2. I absolutely hate day light savings and the fall back whatever you call it. it whacks up my entire schedual and I never know what time it is. However, I do like the idea of extra light now that I’m getting more into photography.

    These look very yummy :)

  3. I haven’t made breakfast yet this morning and all I can think about it sinking my teeth into one {a few} of your irish cream blondies. I love nuts in my baked goods, so I love that you put slivered almonds on top, and the glaze looks excellent. Very presentable and the recipe looks great!

    Gorgeous! Love the flavors. I’m a huge fan of blondies!

  7. Deanna says:

    I realized today being able to take pictures of food when its fresh instead of the next day is the only perk to daylight savings. The blondies look great.

  8. cluttercafe says:

    I just made these, they were delicious!

  9. Purabi Naha says:

    So when I opened my Google Reader (at 6:30 am, ouch) seeing this recipe put me in a much better mood for Monday. I’ve been searching for something other than cookies with green glaze or Guinness cupcakes with Irish Cream frosting to make this year…while those are all wonderful, I wanted something in a different direction for this St. Patrick’s Day. Anyways, I cannot wait to try these out this weekend!

    Cheers!

  11. Breezy says:

    These look lovely! I’ll definitely be passing this on to my parents, they are huge fans of Irish Coffee!

  12. I’ve tried making Irish cream brownies twice in the last two weeks. Maybe these Irish coffee blondies are the answer. :)

    They sure look good and I’m sorry about the difficult week you had. At least it can only get better. Oh, and we have to wait two more weeks to “spring forward” and I can’t wait!

  13. Mmm, these look fabulous!!

  14. ErinCroutons says:

    I love when I have all of the ingredients in the house. These looks awesome!

  15. I’m sorry you had such a rough week. Hopefully you got all of the bad stuff out of the way for a long while. These blondies look utterly irresistible!

  16. Mary Brockmeyer says:

    wow – I have a Will and a Clay too – and also a Tommy, and yes, all their palates are wildly different…

  17. Jennifer | Mother Thyme says:

    I definitely need to whip these blondies up this week to celebrate St. Patty’s Day! Last time I had Irish Coffee was when I was in Ireland about 16 years ago. They were so strong. Like you I was not feeling the best the next day; so I’ll just settle for a delicious blondie this time! :)

  18. Anne says:

    Yum! My husband will be so excited for coffee in the blondies and the whiskey in the glaze…I’m definitely making these this weekend!

  19. Angela says:

  20. Rebecca says:

    These were so amazing . . . I’m already thinking about what else you could put that whisky glaze on. I put a link to your recipe from my blog – after making the Irish Potatoes last year, I knew I could count on you for another perfect holiday treat :)

  21. Maggie says:

    Hi. I love your site. I wanted to try some of you recipes but I live in Argentina and I don’t know how many grams are in a butter stick. Is it like a 100 gr per stick? The packages are a little bit different here. I hope you get back to me soon. Thanks anyway.

  22. Cindy Clogston says:
