Brookies are a rich chocolate brownie and a soft chocolate chip cookie all in one. These sweet bars are a favorite treat for any chocolate lover because now you don’t have to choose between a cookie and a brownie!

Brookies Ingredients

Brookies raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 box of brownie mix, plus the additional ingredients listed on the box (usually water, oil, and eggs)
  • ½ cup of salted butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

EXTRA CHOCOLATE CHIPS: Try sprinkling ¼ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate chunks over the top of the brookies before baking for an extra touch of chocolate.

MILK CHOCOLATE CHIPS: We do not recommend using milk chocolate chips in these homemade brookies as they tend to burn too quickly. Semi-sweet chips are the way to go for this delicious treat.

How To Make This Brookies Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with parchment paper with overhanging sides.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

The overhanging parchment paper will help you to lift out the entire square of bars so that you can cut them into smaller squares easier.

STEP TWO: Mix up the brownie batter according to the package directions. Pour the brownie mixture into the prepared pan and set it aside.

STEP THREE: In a medium bowl, add the softened butter, white sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, beat until the butter mixture is light and fluffy. Set aside.

STEP FOUR: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

STEP FIVE: Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

STEP SIX: Drop spoonfuls of the cookie batter over the top of the brownie layer in the baking dish.

STEP SEVEN: Bake the brookies in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brookies comes out clean.

PRO TIP:

Ovens can vary quite a bit, so always rely on the toothpick testing method to tell you when the brookies are done. Your brookies could take up to 40 minutes to bake, depending on your oven. Check the brookies at 30 minutes, then continue to bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

STEP EIGHT: Let cool in the pan 15 to 20 minutes before serving.

How To Serve

These cookie bars would be perfect served with a cold iced tea, or make things extra fancy with a Wendy’s Frosty to wash them down. Of course, you could also use this half cookie, half brownie for the base of a larger dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

If you really enjoy a great chocolate dessert, make sure you also check out our chocolate lasagna recipe. It’s so pretty with layers of pudding, cream cheese, and Cool Whip over an Oreo crust. Another too-good-to-miss recipe is our mayo cake.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Keep these brookie bars in the pan and covered tightly with plastic wrap or transfer them to a food storage container with a lid. They will keep in the refrigerator for up to five days.

IN THE FREEZER: To freeze these brownie cookie bars, place them in a zip-top bag or an airtight container and freeze for up to three months.
