Brookies

When preparing for any sort of “show” event like the Super Bowl, Golden Globes, or Academy Awards, we like for dessert to be pre-made and something that can be served easily. We don’t want to miss the best part of the event because we are assembling a fancy dessert in the kitchen. Any sort of bar or cookie is great for events like these because they can be made in advance and sliced to serve when it comes time for dessert. We love these brookies and they are especially appealing to all of the chocoholics in our group. The only thing better than a warm chocolate chip cookie is a cookie with a brownie layer on the bottom. If you’re feeling really fancy you can serve these with a little scoop of ice cream on top, but we prefer to eat them hot out of the pan.

A classic dessert for the big show, big game, or any group get together.

Ingredients For The Brownie Layer

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs coffee
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Ingredients For The Cookie Layer

  • 5 tbs salted butter at room temperature
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Make the brownie layer. Heat a medium sauce pot over medium heat. Add the butter and melt until it fully coats the bottom of the pan. Add the chocolate and melt completely. Remove from the heat immediately after the chocolate has melted. In a separate bowl, whisk the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and coffee together. When the chocolate mixture has cooled, add that into the mix as well, whisking as you go to evenly distribute the heat. Add the salt, baking powder, and flour into the chocolate mix. Use a rubber spatula to fold the mixture together, being careful not to over-mix. Pour the batter into the bottom of the baking dish and set aside until ready to bake.
  3. Make the cookie layer. Use a hand mixer to beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Mix for about 3 minutes, or until the butter is fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing well to combine. Add the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour to the mixing bowl. Stir until just combined. Use a spatula to fold in the chocolate chips. Gently flatten the cookie dough and place it in as even a layer as possible over the brownie batter, being sure to not press too firmly into the batter and disturbing the layers.
  4. Bake the brookies for 25-30 minutes, or until they just come out clean with a toothpick. Let the brookies cool completely before slicing and serving.
