BROOKIES (Brownies + Cookies) Baking Post

Happy Sunday Beauties!

Today I thought it was about time for another baking post. And what better way to spend a Sunday than with a baking session.

So without anymore waffling todays baking choice is ......


Yes I'd never heard of it either, but it exists! And if you're still wondering what this is all about its actually 


Much more appealing than a Cronut, I promise!

So if you're interested in this combination crazy overload read on for a full on sugar rush!

Here's the Ingredients you'll need for these:

Cookie Dough Part

125g Plain Flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

100g soft brown sugar
50g caster sugar
100g butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg 
75g chocolate chips

Brownie Part

75g butter
125g dark chocolate
2 eggs
125g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
60g plain flour
25g chocolate chips (or 50g nuts of your choice)


1. First preheat your oven to 170°c

2. The Cookie Dough part comes first:

Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt together in a bowl.

Using a separate bowl cream together sugars and butter. Then in this bowl add the egg gradually by beating after each addition. Also add in the vanilla extract.

Add in the dry ingredients from your flour bowl to this mixture. Fold in until mixed well. Then add in your yummy chocolate chips.

3. Put your cookie dough in the fridge covered up for around 30 minutes.

4. Here comes the Brownie part:

Melt chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until smooth and all melted. Leave this to cool.

Next in a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract together. This should roughly double in size. Once this is done, add in your chocolate and butter mixture.
Then sift and fold in the flour into the mixture. Everything should be well incorporated.
You can add in 50g of nuts of your choice, but I just chose to add in 25g of chocolate chips as I had them left over!

5. I greased 12 mini yorkshire pudding tins and then divided the brownie mixture into these. Make sure that the mixture is spread level. I did have some mixture left over so I just put it into mini loaf tins.

6. Then dollop a spoonful of cookie dough on top of the brownie mixture.

7. Voila your little bad boys are ready to hit the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes or until you see that the cookie dough is a golden brown colour. 

(Mine took 13 minutes, and they looked quite large!)

8. Take out of the oven, leave to cool. Loosen on edges and place them on a wire rack.

9. Once cooled, enjoy your cookie and brownie BROOKIES!

A top tip is to use mini loaf tins if you have them and if you like the brownie part to come out pretty gooey!

I hope you enjoyed this sweet treat post, I would love to know if you get the chance to make them or have made them or something similar in the past?
