What do you get when one twin wants to make cookies and the other twin wants to make brownies? A Brookie of course. This isn’t so much a recipe but an assembly guide to making a great Brookie.

Combining brownie mix with cookie dough may have been around for years, but I’m slow to the game when it comes to desserts. I prefer savory dishes and cooking over baking, but my kids feel strongly about the sweet part of life.

I discovered the cookie/brownie combo at a Memorial Day neighborhood cook-out. Fast forward a month later, and the kids are home all day for summer vacation. They like to experiment in the kitchen, but often times argue about what to make.

So today they compromised with the Brookie. It’s chocolatey, cookie dough goodness–all baked in a muffin pan.

Brookie Assembly:

Do you remember the Food Network show, “Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade?” Well, I just loved her show. 🙂 I spend a lot of time making meals from scratch, but sometimes–you know–just why bother when someone has done the prep work for you. This is one of those times. Summer. Four kids in the kitchen. Easy. All arrows point to semi home-make these suckers.

Here are the ingredients you will need:

Brookie Ingredients

Next, prepare the muffin pan. I like to add cupcake liners and then spray with Pam Baking (made with flour) for the ultimate easy removal.

Grease the liners.

Then, prepare the brownie mix as directed on the box, and evenly distribute among the cupcake liners.

Get told by your younger sister how to do it properly.

Once you are done with the brownie distribution, place one cookie square in each of the brownie batter cups. And if you’re 12, you don’t bother wiping up the brownie mix drip-age.

Then do this…

Brownie Batter

Raw eggs apparently don’t scare us! But seriously, this is one of the joys of being a kid, right?

We preheated the oven to 350 degrees and baked for 20 minutes. Let them cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes. Then remove and enjoy! Try to not eat them all at once.

Finished Product.

Not that this really requires a recipe card, but here is the handy dandy printable just in case. We hope you enjoy our Brookie Recipe! Share your favorite easy treat in the comments below.
