The Best Brookie Cookies |

Hands down, these cookies are THE BEST Brookies, EVER!  A combination of my two favorites: brownies and chocolate chip cookies.  It can’t get any better than the best of two worlds put together in ONE cookie.  Taking a bite into these takes me wayy back to my childhood days when my sister and I would bake up a storm with our “not-so-pretty cakes,” you can read all about it in, how I started.

But you see, baking was always in me, even as a child.  I loved every minute of it and still do till this day.  To know you can make something from scratch and watch it come out of the oven into something so simple yet delicious, brings so much joy.  I know there are many young bakers out there that if I could reach out to each one them, I would say to keep doing what you do because you never know where your passion for baking will lead you.  Baking is truly so much fun and of course, eating the food is even better!  I think everyone can agree on that!

So with all the baking I do, I’m often asked if I eat all of the sweets.  I can’t eat everything.  I wish I could but my jeans won’t let me.  I, instead, give it to my neighbors.  One neighbor in particular is Katie which just so happens to be my hand model in the photo below.  She’s the sweetest.  She surprised me a few weeks ago with baked cookies and asked if I could let her know if I like them.  Of course I did!  They were chocolate chip, my fav!

To return the favor, I gave her a CHARM IT! bracelet and she LOVED it.  Figured it would suit her well being that she enjoys baking too 🙂

And to extend my baking passion, I’m sharing with you something I absolutely adore.  Something I wish I had as a little girl, a CHARM IT! bracelet.

**Begin brownie cookie recipe first**


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment or silicon baking liner; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, melt butter and chocolate in microwave on HIGH setting for 30 seconds, stir. Reheat for an additional 15-30 seconds until fully melted, stir again.
  4. Mix in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir until batter is completely blended. NOTE: batter may appear thin and tacky. Set bowl aside to thicken while preparing soft chocolate chip cookies.


  1. In large bowl, cream granulated sugar, light brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in vanilla and eggs until blended. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Add chocolate chips.
  3. Using a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop rounds of chocolate chip cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets.
  4. Wipe ice cream scooper clean or use a second tablespoon to scoop rounds of brownie cookie dough next to each round of chocolate chip cookie dough.
  5. Join the two cookie doughs together by a small pinch to adhere any gaps.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes. Leave cookies to cool in pan for 1 minute then transfer cookies to a cooling rack. Serve immediately or save for later in an air tight container for one week. ENJOY!


  • Brownie cookie recipe can be doubled to make enough to use the remaining chocolate chip cookie dough.
  • If either cookie doughs appear too thin to scoop and mound, cover and refrigerate dough(s) for 20-30 minutes. Remove and shape accordingly. Refrigerating will help stiffen the dough therefore, it should not fall flat upon baking.
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes

  1. My cookies were flatter than yours. Is it because the cookie doughs need to be chilled? The flavor is definitely delicious.
    I agree that the brownie part needs to be doubled.

    1. Hi Ines,
      Chilling the dough beforehand is a good way to prevent it from flattening too much upon baking. In the notes section of the recipe card, it advising that if you scoop a mound and it is too thin to stand or begins to spread, to refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes before baking. This would apply to either portion of the cookie. Glad you enjoyed the flavor of them! I plan to make these again very soon for the holidays 🙂

    2. Best brookies and my only recipe! Why look further as these are perfection. Just remember to make double the brownie dough to have enough for the chip dough. I use a cookie scoop filling one side of the scoop with chip dough then scoop the brownie dough filling second half which I find much easier. Thank you for this wonderful recipe that my whole family loves!

    1. I have used this recipe 3 times and they are absolutely FABULOUS!!! My family is addicted for sure, thank you so much for sharing this keeper! The only problem I have had with them is there never seems to be enough brownie dough to finish, I use equal amounts of both doughs for each cookie but always am at least 5/6 cookies short on the brownie dough. None the less I am making them again upon special request of my son. Love, love, love them!!!! : )

  2. These look crazy good! I am more of a brownie person and my husband is a cookie lover. This is literally the perfect solution for us!

  3. Pretty good. I thought I was only using about half of the chocolate amount to the cookies but I had 2 cookie trays that were only chocolate chip which is alright.
