You can enjoy a fudgy brownie and a chewy chocolate chip cookie with each bite of these awesome, scrumptious Brookie Bars!
Hey peeps! It’s Melanie, here from Garnish & Glaze to once again share an awesome recipe with you– Brookie Bars!
My go-to treat is usually brownies or cookie bars because they both are quick and easy to throw together and well loved by all. Sometimes I have a hard time deciding which one I want to eat more. Solution? Brookies! Brownie Cookies.
Rich chocolate fudge brownie and soft chewy cookie on top. You can’t go wrong with these babies! Plus, making Brookies as bars is way easier than forming them into cookies and cooking in batches.
Yes, you have dirty two bowls and spend the time making batter and dough but that means you get to lick two bowls clean! Brownie batter is my weakness! I purposefully fail to scrape the bowl clean so I have more to lick. And cookie dough? I’m pretty sure I eat at least a whole cookie (maybe two) worth of cookie dough each time I make cookies. Man, pregnancy was hard! What I do for my children.
These are a definite crowd pleaser and will be gobbled right up.
- 2 cups sugar
- ⅔ cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 4 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1½ cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 10 tablespoons butter
- ⅔ cups brown sugar
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⅔ cup flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix sugar and cocoa powder together. Mix in the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour and salt and mix until just combined. Spread into the greased pan.
- Cream the butter and sugars together for 2 minutes and then mix in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
- Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Use a wooden spoon to mix in chocolate chips.
- Scoop out spoonfuls of dough, flatten with your hands and piece together over the brownie batter (or you can put all the dough between two layers of plastic wrap, roll out, and then place over batter). Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top if desired.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until cookie is golden, tenting with foil if the top is getting too brown. Let the brookies cool completely before cutting.
