Brookie Recipe




My writing often has been described as sweet (sometimes as a compliment and sometimes, not so much). As a nod to that “sweet” writing style, I’m going to share a sweet recipe for my inaugural blog post.

BROOKIE RECIPE

Ingredients
Brownies: (Or use a box mix if you prefer.)
  • 1cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 package (12 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
Cookies: (Or use premade dough if you prefer.)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (12 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
Candy: 1¼ cups (about 6.5 oz) chopped candy bars


Instructions


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 9×13 with parchment paper & mist with cooking spray.
  3. Make Brownie Layer: (Or follow instruction on box if using mix.)
    1. Place the butter and chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until the chocolate chips are melted and smooth. Remove from microwave.
    2. Add the eggs into the bowl one at a time and stir until smooth.
    3. Stir in the vanilla.
    4. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, and cocoa powder and stir until well incorporated.
  4. Make Cookie Layer: (Or ignore if using premade dough.)
    1. Mix both sugars, butter, and egg in a large bowl.
    2. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. (Dough will be stiff.)
    3. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour brownie batter into the prepared baking dish.
  6. Scatter chopped candy bars over brownie batter.
  7. Drop small spoonfulls of the cookie dough on top of the candy bars & brownie batter, as evenly as possible.
  8. Bake for about 25-35 minutes or until top is set and only a few brownie crumbs stick to a toothpick inserted in the center.
  9. Cool in the pan 5 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.
  10. Slice and serve - Mmmmmm! Sweet, delicious, brookie goodness.

p.s. Recently, I did an interview with Mrs. Condit Reads Books (http://mrsconditreadsbooks.com/index.php/?p=5519). In that interview, I mentioned a recipe for a chocolate chip cookie and brownie combo-job and promised to share it on this blog. Well, let nobody say I don’t keep my promises!
