Brookie Cookies


These Brookie Cookies are the perfect portions of a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie all in one!

Yep, I’m still on cookies.

I guess it must be that time of the year…you know holiday baking season and all?


Wait, that hasn’t started yet?




Well, I am on cookies, which means for sure come December when everyone else is making cookies I’ll inevitably be making pie.  Or cake.  Or brownies.


It’s a hard knock life.


These are Brookie Cookies.

Which actually is sort of a redundant name.

Brookie, as in the Brownie/Chocolate Chip Cookie hybrid that everyone loves so much in cookie form.

So it’s basically a Brownie/Chocolate Chip Cookie cookie.

Half brownie/half chocolate chip…all cookie.

Got that?

IMG_5059These are totally easy…they just take a few steps.


First make a simple chocolate chip cookie dough…


Then grab a box of brownie mix.  I like to use the kind that has chocolate chips in it…but that’s a personal preference.

Whisk the mix with a little extra flour…


Then add in some eggs and oil…


Next, grab a spoonful of each dough, squish them together and form them into balls…


Bake them for 9-10 minutes and voila!


Brookie Cookies.

Thanks for the linky love, Shelly! Ever since you told me you made cookies similar to mine last week, I have been on the HUNT for this post, waiting patiently to see them and they were worth the wait! So pretty and eyecatching and I bet the textures are both just a big party in your mouth… yum! 🙂 Pinned!

October 8, 2013 9:22 pm

These look perfect! I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love these. Maybe if my coworkers are lucky… or we’ll eat them all ourselves! 🙂

Hi!!! Just dying here for the brownie cookies…
But I’d like to ask you something. I live in Brazil, and here we dont have Brownie Mix.. I make my own, from scratch. How can I bake this cookie brownies like??

I quit doing box brownie mixes about a month or two ago, but I’m trying to make these for a friend’s birthday mix. I’m going to try it with brownies from scratch and let you know how it goes

Isn’t cookie season year-round?! I most certainly like to think so. Also. Double cookies = double awesome.

I live on a tropical island in the middle of the ocean. We don’t have seasons. Make whatever you want whenever you want. It’s fine by me. Especially when it’s something as awesome as these babies.

October 10, 2013 2:17 am

I would love me some of these!! I tried making a brownie with chocolate chip cookies in it before. Aha, but I love this SO MUCH MORE. Mainly because I love cookies more than I love brownies.

I was super excited when I saw the name of these cookies…because a convenience store in my town sells cookies called Brookies that my friends and I all LOVE! I have a question though…the type sold here have a soft caramel center. How would I go about adding something like that to your recipe? Anyone’s help with this would be greatly appreciated!

These are great! I sprinkled a little flaked sea salt on the cookies, which was delicious! I had extra chocolate cookie dough left, so I baked those, and topped them w/a melted chocolate chip ‘frosting.’
These might be dinner…

Hey there Shelly! I just wanted to leave this comment – I recently tried your recipe, and while I was completely ecstatic about the idea, I hate to say that they did not come out too great! 🙁 The brownies were good, however the cookies seemed very “bread-like” in texture. The outside formed a crisp crust, while the inside stayed soft and fairly good. At first, I thought I had accidentally added too much flour – I double and triple checked the recipe, and I’m a meticulous measurer as is. I was looking through all of my other recipes, trying… Read more »
