HOW TO MAKE BROOKIES

The secret to making these delicious Brookie cookies is preparing both the cookie dough and the brownie batter before hand and letting it chill for at least 2 hours to overnight.

This will not only help keep your cookies from spreading while baking, but it makes it a lot easier to form them into a ball before baking to give them a more uniform look.

Once your dough and batter is chilled, use a small cookie scoop (I used a 1 1/2 Tablespoon scoop) to scoop one part brownie batter and one part cookie dough. Roll both into a ball and place on a greased baking sheet.

Make sure to give them plenty of room to bake.

PRO TIP: Spray your hands with a bit of non-stick spray before rolling the Brookies. This will keep the dough from sticking to your hands.

Bake your cookies at 350 degrees/F for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies look golden brown.

The same rule applies here as with baking traditional chocolate chip cookies. You don’t want to over bake or you will have a dry cookie. The cookies will continue to bake when you take them out of the oven.

After the come out of the oven, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

MAKE AHEAD AND FREEZING OPTIONS

You can make the dough and batter ahead of time and put in is air tight and freezer safe container. I would recommend using Ziploc freezer bags or a similar container to keep from getting freezer burn.

I wouldn’t recommend freezing already made cookies. However, if you have any left overs, store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to three days.

VARIATIONS AND ADD-INS

These cookies would be so fun to customize to fit the taste of your family. Some fun add-ins I would recommend would be:

Nuts: walnuts or pecans would both work great!

Caramel bits: Kraft is a good brand to use.

Your favorite candy: One that comes to mind is mini M&M’s!

Pretzel Pieces: For a sweet and salty dessert.

BROOKIE RECIPE NOTES

Make sure you make the dough and batter before you plan on making the Brookies so it has time to chill. This keeps the cookies from spreading too much.

You will probably have left over chocolate chip cookie dough. Feel free to just make regular cookies out of that, or freeze/refrigerate for later.
