Can’t decide between a brownie or a chocolate chip cookie? You won’t have to when you make these Brookie Cookies!
I used to think that there was no way to improve on a chocolate chip cookie.
They’re just so home-y and comforting, with the buttery cookie and all those melt-y chocolate chips. How could anything be better?
Then, I discovered the brookie cookie. And my whole world changed.
It’s like a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie fell in love and had babies. Soft, warm, chocolate-y little babies.
One side is a delicious chocolate chip cookie, and the other a deep, dark-chocolate-y brownie. Two of the best desserts combined!
Start by making the brownie cookie dough. It’s got melted butter in it, so it needs a little time to cool and firm up before it can be rolled into brookie-balls.
You will love this brownie recipe! So chewy and just exploding with dark chocolate flavor.
While the brownie cookie dough cools and becomes stiffer, you can make the chocolate chip cookie dough. This is hands-down my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. The result is thick, soft, and it practically melts in your mouth.
Once you have both doughs made, it’s as simple as scooping up two spoonfuls, and rolling them together in a ball. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake until golden.
And make sure you’ve got plenty of milk!
