THE Best Brookie Cookies

The best soft and chewy brownie and chocolate chip cookie all in one!

Hands down, these cookies are THE BEST Brookies, EVER!  A combination of my two favorites: brownies and chocolate chip cookies.  It can’t get any better than the best of two worlds put together in ONE cookie.  Taking a bite into these takes me wayy back to my childhood days when my sister and I would bake up a storm with our “not-so-pretty cakes,” you can read all about it in, how I started.

But you see, baking was always in me even as a child.  I loved every minute of it and still do till this day.  To know you can make something from scratch and watch it come out the oven into something so simple yet delectable, brings so much joy.  I know there are many young bakers out there that if I could reach out to each one them, I would say to keep doing what you do because you never know where your passion for baking will lead you.  Baking is truly so much fun and of course, eating the food it is even better!  I think everyone can agree with me on that!

So with all the baking I do, I’m often asked if I eat all of the sweets.  Now I can’t eat everything.  I wish I could but my jeans won’t let me.  Instead I give it to my neighbors.  One neighbor in particular is Katie which just so happens to be my hand model in the photo below.  She is the sweetest girl.  She surprised me a few weeks ago with baked cookies and asked if I could let her know if I like them.  Of course I did!  They were chocolate chip, my fav!

To return the favor, I gave her a CHARM IT! bracelet and she LOVED it.  Figured it suit her well being that she enjoys baking too :)

To extend my baking passion, I’m sharing with you something I absolutely adore.  Something I wish I had as a young girl, a CHARM IT! bracelet

Instructions

    **Begin brownie cookie recipe first**
    BROWNIE COOKIES
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment or silicon baking liner; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, melt butter and chocolate in microwave on HIGH setting for 30 seconds, stir. Reheat for an additional 15-30 seconds until fully melted, stir again.
  4. Mix in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir until batter is completely blended. NOTE: batter may appear thin and tacky. Set bowl aside to thicken while preparing soft chocolate chip cookies.
  5. SOFT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE
  6. In large bowl, cream granulated sugar, light brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  7. Beat in vanilla and eggs until blended. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Add chocolate chips.
  8. Using a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop rounds of chocolate chip cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets.
  9. Wipe ice cream scooper clean or use a second tablespoon to scoop rounds of brownie cookie dough next to each round of chocolate chip cookie dough.
  10. Join the two cookie doughs together by a small pinch to adhere any gaps.
  11. Bake 8-10 minutes. Leave cookies to cool in pan for 1 minute then transfer cookies to a cooling rack. Serve immediately or save for later in an air tight container for one week. ENJOY!

Notes

Brownie cookie recipe can be doubled to make enough to use the remaining chocolate chip cookie dough.

If either cookie doughs appear too thin to scoop and mound, cover and refrigerate dough(s) for 20-30 minutes. Remove and shape accordingly. Refrigerating will help stiffen the dough therefore, it should not fall flat upon baking.

  3. My two favorite desserts in one! I am beyond excited to make this. No more having to make a hard decision about which to eat, the cookie or the brownie. Both! Duh.

  4. Made a batch of these today. They spread out loads and mushed into each other so had to cut them into rectangle shapes! Any ideas? Tasted delicious though :)

    • Hi Katie, sorry this happened to you. Sometimes flops happen even to the best of us. The cookies could have gone wrong for any number of reason(s) so it can be difficult to pinpoint the error. First thing I would do when starting is to double check that all of the ingredients used are the correct amounts and at the right state (ex: butter, softened is not the same as butter, melted). Secondly, make sure you prep the brownie batter first so it can thicken to a dough-like state while you make the chocolate chip cookie dough. If everything here works fine and the batter still seems a bit too thin (which may be the cause of spreading), cover and refrigerate dough(s) for 20-30 minutes, remove and shape accordingly. Refrigerating will help keep the dough a bit more stiff and should not fall flat upon baking.

      I hope you give this recipe another try and if you do, let me know here how it turned out. :)

  5. do you think placing in a casserole dish would work? and then cut them into bars. Either layering the two on top of one another OR kind of striping in the dish cookie dough and brownie dough?

    • Funny that you mentioned this. I recently used the same amounts of ingredients in this recipe into a 13×9 baking pan. The results were that the bars came out super thick (about 2-inches thick). This may not be a problem for you but I wasn’t entirely pleased with how they looked. Tasted great but it wasn’t good enough for me to want to share this on the site. This recipe needs more tweaking before a successful brookie BAR is shown. In general, it can work. Just expect very thick bars so have that bread knife handy!

    • Hi Diana, these cookies are actually really easy to make. You’re basically taking 2 cookie doughs and squishing them together. I hope you try it and if you do, let me know here if you like them. Thanks!

  6. I made these the other day and they didn’t work out at all. Sad, as I was really looking forward to bringing them to my daughters game for her and her friends to enjoy. The cookies spread out completely until they looked more like flat mounds, and the chocolate chip cookie mixture didn’t have the texture of a cookie, more like cake! It was very disappointing, I wonder what went wrong as I followed the instructions exactly!

    • Hi Lauren, sorry this recipe didn’t work for you. I’ve had these cookies tested several times which had positive results. It’s difficult to pinpoint what went wrong as there are many factors that could play into making a recipe not work (ie: expired baking soda, oven temp may need to be calibrated, etc.). My best recommendations are to double check that all of the ingredients used are the correct amounts and at the right state (ex: butter, softened is not the same as butter, melted). Secondly, make sure you prep the brownie batter first so it can thicken to a dough-like state while you make the chocolate chip cookie dough. If everything here works fine and the batter still seems a bit too thin cover and refrigerate doughs for 20-30 minutes, remove and shape accordingly.

      I hope you give this recipe another try and if you do, let me know here how it turned out.

  7. I recently made these cookies. they are absolutely delicious! But they are the ugliest thing on this planet. My brownie mix was very thick and the cookie mix was very thin. but like I said, they are delicious.

  8. I followed this recipe to the letter and the cookies turned out perfectly! The ticket could be the parchment paper on the cookie sheets and mixing the ingredients for each cookie carefully. I also used a wooden spoon to hand mix the brownies and used the wooden spoon again in blending the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients of the chocolate cookies. This seemed to aid in keeping both batters firm and easy to mold together to form into one cookie. So delicious and artistic. I will definitely make them again!
