Brookies: chocolate brownie base with chocolate chip cookie topping!

I have a favorite brownie recipe. And a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Then one day, they met, and it was love at first bite.

Corny? yeah. Actually what came to mind when writing this is those horribly annoying KY commercials. You know the ones. The man and woman talking about the experience, and then WHAALLLAAAA, joy.

Okay, I better not go there. This is a family friendly blog. And these Brookies are family friendly! So much so, that my family wants me to make more. And eat them warm with icecream for an even more amazing experience.

Nevermind. How about the recipe?

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 24


    For the Brownie Layer:
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
  • For the Cookie Layer:
  • 3/4 cup Butter flavored Crisco
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate morsels


  1. For the brownie layer, in a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together until just combined. Pour into a 13x9 pan that is lined with parchment paper.
  2. For the cookie dough, beat crisco with brown sugar. Add in vanilla, milk and egg. Slowly beat in flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Mix in chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto the brownie layer.
  3. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely. I refrigerate to speed up the process. Enjoy!

    These are in my oven as I write. And, your Rolo fudge is chilling in my fridge. Now, if I can only muster enough energy to pull off your key lime fudge…

    Thanks for sharing your delicious recipes. I hope you don’t mind a copy cat!

    I’ve never heard of a Brookie so I had to come check them out. Sounds like a real crowd pleaser.

    Enigmeg- I am so glad you enjoyed them! I had to freeze half the batch because I couldn’t keep my hands off of them!

    Can I use butter instead. I don’t usually buy Crisco. Want to make this for next weekend. Thanks.

    Can I use butter instead of Butter flavored Crisco? I don’t think I can get this product in Australia.

        I went ahead and used plain flour and they turned out great. I was told to save recipe for the future.

    My cousin made your delicious maple bacon cookies for thanksgiving this year and I really wanted to try it last night. I went with this Brookie recipe instead since maple extract is so elusive! I selected this recipe because I had everything in my pantry. I don’t know if it was because I used a stone 13×9, the silicone baking mat or it’s simply the awesomeness of your recipe but … Thank you :) I’m going to have another piece now.
