Imagine fusing the indulgence of a dense, chocolatey brownie cake with the crunchy joy of a chocolate chip cookie . This sweet tooth dream comes true in our brookies recipe , a dessert or snack that promises to capture hearts and delight palates.

What are brookies?

A brookie is a delicious hybrid between a brownie and a cookie , combining the best of both worlds in one dessert. The base of a brookie typically consists of a layer of rich, chocolatey brownie batter, topped with a layer of cookie dough, which when baked together create a unique texture: moist and dense from the brownie, with the edges and bottom top crispy like a cookie.

The preparation of a brookie can vary: some recipes suggest mixing pieces of cookie dough into the brownie batter, while others layer a different layer of each on top of each other. There are also versions in which the ingredients of both masses are combined into one, seeking to balance the flavors and textures of both classic sweets.

This dessert is perfect for those torn between choosing a cookie or a brownie, as the brookie offers the satisfaction of both in every bite. In addition, it is a very versatile sweet that can be adapted to different tastes, adding nuts, chocolate chips, candies, or any other desired ingredient.

How to make brookies: the recipe


For the cookie dough:

  • 120 g wheat flour
  • 110 g brown sugar
  • 50 g white sugar
  • 80 g unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate pieces
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

For the brownie batter:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup of black cocoa (about 100 g)
  • 1 tsp salt (5 g)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 180 g unsalted butter
  • 250 g white sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder (chemical yeast, approx. 3 g)
  • 125 g common wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate pieces (approximately 250 g)


We make the cookie dough:

  1. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into a container. Booking.
  2. Use the KitchenAid mixer with the balloon attachment to beat the brown sugar, white sugar and melted butter for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Beat in the vanilla and egg, making sure they are well combined.
  4. Gradually add the reserved dry ingredient mixture until you obtain a homogeneous dough.
  5. Finish by adding the chocolate chips and chocolate pieces, mixing gently.

    We make the brownie dough:

    1. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
    2. Beat the eggs, vanilla and cocoa powder with the mixer and paddle attachment.
    3. Melt the butter in a container that you can use in the microwave, mix in the sugar and heat for 30 more seconds to dissolve the sugar well.
    4. Combine the butter and sugar mixture with the previously beaten ingredients, mix on low speed until smooth.
    5. Add the dry ingredients and chocolate pieces, mixing until well combined.

      Assembly and baking:

      1. Prepare the oven by preheating it to 180°C and line a 23x23 cm square mold with baking paper.
      2. Spread ¾ of the brownie batter on the bottom of the pan, using a spatula to distribute it evenly.
      3. With an ice cream scoop, distribute portions of the cookie dough over the brownie dough, leaving spaces uncovered.
      4. Add the rest of the brownie batter to cover any empty spaces and smooth the surface.
      5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the edges and most of the center are firm to the touch.
      6. Let cool in the pan on a rack before cutting into portions to serve. Remember that you can bake leftover cookie dough separately or freeze it for another time.


        • Choice of Cocoa: Using dark cocoa in the brownie batter provides a deep flavor and stunning aesthetic, but make sure your guests appreciate the intensity this ingredient brings. If you prefer something milder, consider adjusting the amount or using a cocoa blend.
        • Oven Watch: Since we are combining two types of doughs with potentially different baking times, it is crucial to keep an eye on the oven toward the end of the baking time. Look for that sweet spot where the brownies are done but the cookies still retain a touch of softness.

        • Handling Leftovers: If you find yourself with leftover cookie dough, it's a great opportunity to experiment. Bake a few extra cookies or keep it in the freezer for a future treat. This flexibility adds extra value to the already wonderful brookie recipe.

        • Adaptability: Although the recipe is wonderful as is, feel free to customize it. If you have specific preferences regarding the type of chocolate or want to add a personal touch with nuts or dried fruits, go ahead. Brookies are a canvas for your creativity.
        • Sharing is Caring: Brookies are for sharing. Be sure to cut them into generous portions and, if possible, save some extras. You never know when you'll want to surprise someone with a sweet gesture or satisfy a sudden craving.

        And if, apart from sharing generous portions of brookies with friends and family, you share your comments on this post or leave your rating on the recipe below, you will make us doubly happy! I sincerely hope that you liked the recipe. A hug!
