Brookies . . . Brownies plus chocolate chip cookies. All rolled together in one spectacular treat that will make your mouth happy.
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.
Chocolate chip cookies have always been a favorite of mine. But sometimes I want something a little more chocolatey. 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.
I figured combining two of my very favorite treats 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!
Tips for making Brookies cookies:
-Don’t forget to make the brownie dough first. It needs to be chilled so it firms up and doesn’t spread too much while baking.
-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 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. 🙂
Handy Tools for Making Brookies Cookies
-I have a stand mixer and a Bosch, but for making cookies I like to use a hand mixer. It’s great for creaming the butter and sugar.
-I love my silicone pan liners and use them every time I make cookies. Nothing sticks to them!
-You can use regular chocolate chips, but I like using mini chocolate chips for this recipe. You get more chips in every bite, and the dough is also a little easier to roll together.
