Brookies are a fun, easy dessert that brings together two of the best desserts: brownies and cookies! Best of all, they’re ready in only 30 minutes and require minimal effort.
If you’re someone who says “one of each, please” when asked “Would you like a cookie or a brownie?” you’re going to love Brookies! As I like to say, Brookies are “where brownies and chocolate chip cookies become one.” (Brownie + cookie = Brookie!)
While there’s nothing wrong with the singular flavors of rich, fudgy brownies and sweet, chocolatey chocolate chip cookies, desserts can always be improved… so why not combine the two? Brookies (sometimes called “Brookie Cookies”) are a little like ice cream sandwiches — while cookies and ice cream are two fantastic desserts that stand on their own, something incredible happens when you bring both of them together.
I love to make impressive and beautiful desserts. Lemon Poppy Seed Cake, Pear Spice Cake with Salted Caramel, Fresh Raspberry Cream Cake… those desserts all have a serious “wow” factor. Sometimes, though, you want to put together a memorable dessert that isn’t too time-consuming.
That’s where Brookies come in. Brookies will get people talking, but they’re foolproof. You simply make chocolate chip cookie dough and brownie dough, scoop one tablespoon of each, and then combine the two scoops into one ball. Bake on a prepared baking sheet and your Brookies are ready to serve.
Brookies make for a great last-minute dessert choice. They have something a little special about them that makes it seem like you put in a lot of extra effort, but it really only takes a few additional minutes to make one more batter.
