The Best Brookie Recipe

Whenever I’m in the mood to get in the kitchen and do some baking, there’s always the dilemma of what I want to bake. Usually, my go-to items consist of cookies or brownies. I choose these two because they are both easy to whip together, and I know everyone in my family loves both.

What is a Brookie?

Cookies? Brownies? Now there is no need to choose when you can have both in one with our amazing chocolate chip brookie recipe!

A brookie is a brownie with spoonfuls of cookie dough baked inside! Oh… and it is delicious!

When I first discovered brookies, my family’s life was changed. Okay, maybe that’s a tiny bit dramatic, but seriously these are so darn good. It is truly a combination of the two best sweets ever, brownies and cookies, all in one delicious dish.

Best of all, they are as easy to make as any batch of cookies or brownies ever was. Simply using a box of brownie mix to make the brownie batter and mixing up your traditional batch of cookie dough. Then you just marble the two together and wahlah! you have your brookies.

Additions & Substitutions

Brownie Mix: You can use any brand of boxed brownie mix that you prefer, and if you have a homemade brownie recipe that’s your favorite you can definitely use that instead.

Chocolate Chips: To mix things up and give your brookies a different flavor, you can use different types of chocolate chips. White chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or butterscotch would all be delicious!

Pre-Made Cookie Dough: Want to make things EVEN EASIER? You can skip making the cookie batter and opt for refrigerated cookie dough! Trust me, there is no shame in shortcuts!

Tips for Making Brookies

Tip 1: Depending on how hot your oven runs, you may need to cook this recipe for as long as 40 minutes. Unfortunately, you cannot rely on the toothpick test to tell you when the brookies are done because the brownies stay fudgy. Look for the cookies to get golden brown on top and check the edges of the brownies.

Tip 2: For extra chocolate, sprinkle ¼ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips on the top of the brownies when they are done cooking. They will melt down a bit into the brownies while they cool.
