Alternative to alcoholic Irish Cream?

Hi! :)

I found a recipe for irish cream brownies that I'd like to make, however it calls for a little more than ½ of a cup of irish cream liqueur. Since I'm pregnant, I'd like to avoid the alcohol. My thinking is that the alcohol doesn't bake away in a cake recipe. Is that correct? (And the icing isn't baked so it would be full force there.)

What could I use as an alternative? I've seen the bailey's irish cream coffee creamer as well as Coffeemate's version. Would that be a suitable alternative or is that too much on the milk side of things?

If I can't use an alternative, any suggestions on a similar recipe without alcohol (and yes, I know the extracts have some in it, unfortunately, lol)?

I read somewhere too that you can use cold leftover coffee in place of the Irish whiskey and instant coffee.
