Brookies are a winning combo of chocolate chip cookies and brownies. These incredible treats are truly the best of both worlds!

Brownies and Chocolate Chip Cookies combined to make Brookies!

Is it a cookie? Is it a brownie? The answer is neither and both at the same time! If you are in one of those moods where you can’t decide whether to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies or a pan full of chocolate brownies let this recipe be the tie breaker. Brookies are the beautiful and delicious marriage of both. When I discovered this recipe, I thought that I found some sort of forbidden treat. How can one thing be truly so scrumptious and irresistible? Make a batch of these to find out!

WHAT ARE BROOKIES?

One half of this treat is a traditional chocolate chip cookie that is total perfection. The other half is a rich, dense chocolate brownie that is out of this world. The two halves bake together resulting into the most wonderful dessert. Now the choice is yours to bite one side, or both. 😉

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE BROOKIES

It may seem complicated, but it’s an easy recipe! Here are the ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups salted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips 

HOW TO MAKE BROOKIES

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpats.

Mix the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand-mixer, or in a large bowl with an electric hand-mixer, until creamy and combined. Add the vanilla extract and eggs. Mix until well combined.

Slowly add in 4 cups of the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Continue to mix until a dough forms. Divide the dough in two equal halves. Take one half of the dough and place it on a plate. Set aside.

Add the remaining 2 Tablespoons of flour to the dough inside the mixer/bowl. Mix until just combined. Stir in the 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Remove this dough from the bowl and set aside.

Place the other half of dough back in the mixer/bowl. Add the cocoa powder and mix until combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough using a ¼ cup measuring cup. (Each portion is ¼ cup.) Take one chocolate chip dough portion and take one double chocolate cookie portion. Press them together to form one large dough ball. Place on the prepared cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.

*(You can also break the cookie dough balls apart, rotate, then press back together so you have 2 sections each of brownie and cookie dough per cookie. This is what I did.)

Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes, or until barely golden brown and set.

Remove from oven and let cookies cool right on the cookie sheets. Serve warm and enjoy!

  1. I’ve got a million things to cook and bake to get ready for my sons graduation party on Saturday…wondering if I could just layer the two types of cookie & brownie mixes and turn them into brookie bars to save the time of baking them off individually?
