I heard about brookies a couple of years ago, but only recently tried making this fun combination of brownies and cookies.
You can make brookies in cookie form or brownie form…I decided to try the brownie method. I do admit, I am kind of hooked on brookies now, so I may try the cookie form soon…lol!
What I did was use a premium brownie mix…*gasp*!!… I know, I know… a little bit of cheating but it worked like a charm and was so much easier than making both batters from scratch.
The first thing I did was make up a batch of my Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies, you can use your favourite recipe for chocolate chip cookies or you are welcome to use my recipe. Mine is really, really good and I have linked it above if you want to give them a try.
For the brownie part, I used a Ghirardelli triple chocolate brownie mix (you could use any premium brownie mix) and prepared it according to the package directions.
When I had both batters ready, I poured the brownie mix into a parchment lined 9” x 9” pan. I almost always line my pans with parchment. I use two pieces, cut to fit and put one piece left to right and the second piece, top to bottom. Leave a bit of an overhang on each side, then when the brookies have cooled you can use the overhang as handles to easily remove them from the pan and cut into squares. Plus, parchment makes cleanup a breeze…trust me, parchment is definitely your friend!
- CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES - Your own recipe or you are welcome to use mine. (Linked)
- BROWNIES - One package of premium brownie mix.
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line a 9”x9” (23cm x 23cm) metal pan with parchment paper. (See note in the blog post)
- Prepare chocolate chip cookie dough, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough.
- Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.
- Pour brownie mix into the prepared pan.
- Using two teaspoons drop bits of dough all over the surface of the brownies in a bit of a cobblestone pattern, covering most of the brownie batter.
- Gently press cookie dough into the brownie batter.
- I used about half of my cookie dough for the brookies and just made cookies with the remaining dough.
- Cover the pan with aluminium foil and bake in a preheated oven for approximately 55 minutes, removing foil for the last 12-15 minutes.
- You will need to watch them carefully for the last 15 minutes as oven temperatures vary greatly. If you find the cookies are getting too brown before the brownies are cooked, re-cover with foil.
PIN IT – BROOKIES
