Sugar Brookies: a delicious combo of Sugar Cookies and Brownies. Don't forget sprinkles!

Hey friends! It’s Aimee. Coming to you from Illinois.

Our move went smoothly. I forget how much work it is to unpack though. And sadly, I think I have less cabinet space at this new house! It’s like a puzzle trying to figure out what will be stored where. And then I switch it around. I think I’ve rearranged my cabinets 4 times.

But, now I’m pretty sure I know where everything is. So much so, that I whipped up these Sugar Brookies the other day.

Sugar Brookies: a delicious combo of Sugar Cookies and Brownies. Don't forget sprinkles!

If you recall, brookies are a combo of cookies + brownies….a delicious combo if you ask me! Scroll down after the recipe and you’ll see I’m a bit obsessed!

Today’s recipe was inspired by the insane amount of sprinkles I unpacked. One whole cabinet of sprinkles. Priorities, right?

And, can I just say that I’ve typed SHUGAR (not SUGAR) twice now. It’s a problem I have. I know how to spell sugar, honest. As a reminder (I’m asked frequently) SHUGARY is a play off my last name. Which is fun and perfect for blogging….not so great when you need to write the word SUGAR and you want to stick an H in there every time! Ha.

As for these Sugar Brookies…they are obviously a combo of sugar cookies and brownies. And sprinkles, of course. You can use a boxed brownie mix for the bottom layer if you prefer, I enjoy this easy, one bowl from scratch recipe below. And they end up being so moist and fudgy.

Also, these are REALLY good on day 2. Dare I say I think they may even taste better! Crazy how that is sometimes, right!

  1. Now I don’t have to choose between two of my favorite deserts! Don’t know if any would last till the second day though.

  2. Mmm…I love this contrast sugar cookie against brownie. Bet it’s delish!
    Hope you have an awesome weekend Aimee!

  3. I am currently eating a bowl of oatmeal and wishing it was one of these. Remind me to never visit your blog before breakfast. Cookies and brownies? I. Am. Dead. Pinned!

  4. Is that a cup of coffee in one of your pics?! I think my coffee this morning is definitely needing one of these sugar brookies! Good luck with all the unpacking. I just moved a few states from CA to TX about 3 weeks ago…I’m still unpacking. The only thing done is the kitchen!

    Don’t hold back! Rearrange your cabinets as much as you need to! It’s gotta be right, or you’ll spend the next years of your life cursing the day you decided to put the cereal bowls ever so slightly out of reach.

    Mine did not stay layered the brownie bubbled up through the cookie part to become marbled, should still taste good I hope any ideas.

    I had difficulty getting the brownie part to sit up….not that I don’t mind gooey, but these were borderline soupy on the bottom. I baked them for 28 minutes at 385, and even put them back in for 7 minutes after waiting an hour for them to cool. I was hoping to give this batch to welcome some new neighbors, but I think I may have to have a re-do. Any suggestions?

    As other reviewers pointed out, the brownie is a bit too gooey, probably because the recipe doesn’t call for any leavener (baking soda or powder). The cookie part is a bit tricky to spread evenly on top of the brownie batter. I placed a dollop evenly distributed and then gently spread each one out.
