Hi my name is Whitney and I’m addicted to Brookies! It’s a brownie + a cookie, come on people!

Ever since I created the first brookie recipe on the blog for Gluten Free Nutella Brookies, then Red Velvet Brookies for Valentine’s Day, I’ve pretty much made it my mission in life to create every brookie combination possible!

With St. Patrick’s Day less than two weeks away, I knew that I had to create a special brookie for one of my favorite holidays!

Last year I made Irish Cream Donuts with a Chocolate Glaze to celebrate the holiday, this year I created these Irish Cream & Guinness Brookies.
