Brookies

Brookies: Brownies plus chocolate chip cookies. All rolled together in one spectacular treat that will make your mouth happy.
Brookies- a combination of two favorites, brownies and chocolate chip cookies, all rolled into one!

Cookies are a yummy treat. Brownies are a yummy treat. Put them together into one treat and you just might explode. Just kidding. Do I have your attention now? Seriously, these cookies taste A-mazing! Plus they look all fancy like they came from a bakery. So you can totally impress your friends.
Brookies- the perfect marriage of brownies and chocolate chip cookies!Chocolate chip cookies have always been a favorite of mine. But sometimes I want something a little more chocolate-y. You know, like brownies. When I saw a recipe for Brookies over at Mel’s Kitchen Cafe, I knew I had to give them a try. Because combining two of my very favorite things had to be a win. Which of course it was. An epic win actually. These cookies are soft, chewy, and filled with chocolate goodness. I ate way more than my share of them. Beware, they are scary good!
Combine brownies with chocolate chip cookies, and you have Brookies. An epic cookie that everyone will love!

I added baking powder to the original recipe, because I like tall chunky cookies. Since I live at a high altitude, I tend to get flat cookies without it. But they weren’t overly tall, so I think even if you live at sea level, you should be fine following the recipe just as written. If you get to the end of the dough and have extra of one left over, no worries. Just make an ordinary cookie. It will still be awesome. Or if you prefer, you have my permission to eat the dough. 🙂

  1. Saw this on Pinterest, made them tonight. These are delicious and so easy!! Thanks for a great recipe!!

  2. I’ve now made these cookies several times and they consistently turn out exactly as pictured. A beautiful show stopper! However, I find them more like a choc chip cookie mixed with a double choc chip cookie, as opposed to a brownie… as in you make 2 similar cookie batters but one has cocoa and the other doesn’t.

  3. Just made these. And they look great. But turned out a little bland? Or not so sweet. What did I do wrong? Or can do differently next time?

    • I’m not sure why they turned out bland, they are plenty sweet for me. Did you by any chance use unsalted butter or omit the salt? That would be the only thing I can think of that would alter the flavor.

  4. I just made these, and they are delicious! they dont quite look the same though, not the “cracked” look.I live in australia and we dont have baking soda here, we have bicarbonate of soda, are they interchangable? i used self raising flour instead of putting in the baking soda, but i did use the baking powder, any ideas why they dont look the same?

    • Baking soda and bicarbonate of soda are the same thing. If you used self raising flour, it has baking powder in it, so that may explain why they looked a little different.

    Hi! Can I half this recipe? If yes, can you teach me how? Thank you!

    • This recipe is not easily halved, because it is pretty challenging to use half an egg and half an egg yolk. But the cookies do freeze well, so you can save the extras for another day, or just share them!

  6. These look amazing! I’m going to make them for our Memorial Day Picnic! Thank you for sharing!

  7. I just finished up my first batch of this WONDERFUL cookies. I love it when they turn out just like the picture. I tend to make my cookies bigger, so mine needed to bake 17 min. Just got a new Kitchenaid. Just having so much fun baking and mixing. Can’t wait to try your other recipes. Thanks again!!!

  8. Found these today and am making the for tomorrow. They turned out perfect! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.

  9. Found these on Pinterest last night, and the first batch has just come out of the oven :-D. Is there any trick to stopping the brownie dough sticking to your hands? I’m re-chilling it at the moment (my kitchen does get quite warm), but I was wondering if I need a bit more flour / cocoa powder next time?

    • If the dough is sticking, it just needs to be chilled a little longer. To speed it up, you can put it in the freezer for a few minutes. 🙂

  10. Hi this looks yummy hopefully when school is closed I will be able to make it from scratch but right now i am in a rush and I wanted to know if there is a cheat sheet I can use. I have to make it last min soooo my question is ..

    Is it possible if I can make it with the prepackaged bags for brownie and chocolate chip from any brand ?

    thanks

    • I think you could get away with using pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough, but not a brownie mix. Brownie mixes make more of a batter, so it would run all over the place and make a big mess. I’ve never purchased cookie dough, so I don’t know if chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough is even an option, but I’d try that if you can find it.

  11. Oh YUM!! These Brookies look so soft and delicious! The best of both worlds, in one delicious cookie! Haha, they’re the perfect choice for all those indecisive days I have! 🙂 Pinned!

    • Haha, yes- perfect for the days when you can’t decide. I actually have too many of those days. 😉

  12. Oh these look good, but too good for my healthy eating goals right now and I sadly have no willpower against goodness. Pinning these for later though!

  13. oooh! You are right, I might just explode! These look wonderful!

  14. I mean – Brookie is one of her nicknames! haha

  15. These look FABULOUS! My youngest will love them even more since that’s one of her nicknames! Totally going to have to try these soon.
