Ok so maybe I got a little excited there, but for good reason! These really are superior to a cookie or a brownie in almost every way. They’re like an epic baking Transformer. On their own they’re still pretty damn amazing, but merge them together to form an ultra incredible bar of brookie indulgence and you have got yourself a winner my friend! This easy brookie recipe will have your friends and family begging you for your secret recipe in no time. Well I won’t tell if you won’t! It’ll just stay between you and me…

These luscious brookie bars would be ideal for any occasion, they’re surprisingly adaptable! You could pop them in a box to take to a BBQ, serve them warm with a scoop of ice cream for an indulgent dinner party dessert or even cut into smaller portions & wrap for children’s birthday party bag loot. I personally didn’t need an occasion to whip up a batch of these bad boys, I just fancied a spot of baking and some chocolate heaven. So whatever your need, I promise there’s always a place for this brookie recipe in your life!

Brookie Recipe Top Tips

  • When testing for doneness with a skewer, you don’t want it to come out completely clean. You want a little bit of goo left on the tip of your skewer when you take them out the oven. The residual heat will continue to cook them slightly anyway. And after all, a great brownie is fudgy & gooey!
  • Use a good quality chocolate for your brownies. Sounds simple but it will really impact the overall flavour of your brookies.
  • Bring your cookie ingredients to room temperature before starting. Ingredients blend together much better when they are all at the same temperature, making your life much easier!
  • Make sure you let your brookies cool completely before attempting to remove them from the tin and slice. Otherwise you will land yourself in a right gooey old mess!

Amazing Brookie Recipe

Here is what you will need to make 16 bars.

For the Cookie

  • 115g Unsalted Butter, Room Temp
  • 200g Soft Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg, Room Temp
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 125g Plain Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 100g Milk Chocolate Chips

 

For the Brownie

  • 110g Unsalted Butter
  • 110g Dark Chocolate
  • 2 Eggs
  • 225g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 60g Plain Flour
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder

 

To Decorate

  • 50g Dark Chocolate (Optional)

 

Essential Equipment

  • 20cm (8″) Square Baking Tin
  • Electric Stand Mixer or Large Bowl & Electric Hand Whisk

 

To Make the Cookie

Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 170°C and lightly grease & line your tin. Set it to one side.

In an electric stand mixer or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk, beat together the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy.

Then crack in that egg and give it another beat until it becomes nice and smooth again.

Drop in the vanilla extract and briefly mix again to distribute it. Now would be a good time to scrape the sides down if needs be.

Then sift in the flour, salt & bicarbonate of soda and mix again just until it comes together to form a sticky dough.

Add in those chocolate chips (yes, it’s ok to be cheeky and eat a few!) and give it a brief final mix until evenly distributed.

Finally, scrape the mixture into your prepared baking tin and level out as best as you can with a spatula. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be too neat!

To Make the Brownie

Cube the butter into a large glass bowl and break in the chocolate. Heat in 10-20 second intervals in your microwave (or set over a pan of barely simmering water if you don’t have a microwave) stirring well between each blast until it’s completely melted.

Try not to overheat. If it gets too warm, allow to cool for a few minutes before moving on to the next stage or you will get scrambled egg brownies!

Crack in one of the eggs and beat really well until it smooths out. Then crack in the second and repeat until it becomes smooth again.

Time for the sugar! Weigh it straight into the bowl and give it a very good mix. The sugar should almost dissolve, so shouldn’t feel grainy when you stir.

Tip in the vanilla extract & the salt and briefly mix once more.

Finally, sift in the flour & cocoa powder and fold in with a spatula. Keep mixing only until you can’t see any more flour, don’t overdo it.

Now pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough in your prepared tin and smooth out with a spatula.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 mins until a skewer inserted into the middle only has a little amount of batter on the tip. The top will be nice and crispy.

Now for the really tough bit. Let this bad boy cool completely before attempting to remove it from the tin. When cool, slice into 16 bars. If you can contain yourself and actually have any left, store them in an airtight container at room temperature and consume within 4-5 days.

Want to take it one step further? Break some dark chocolate into a disposable piping bag and heat in the microwave in 10 second intervals. Give it a good ‘smush’ between each time and keep going until it’s smooth and melted. Snip the end and pipe zigzag lines all over the top of each brookie. Allow to set at room temperature.
