I’m so happy to be sharing this recipe with you today!

I made these brookie cookies a few weeks ago, and they were a HUGE hit! Everyone who I shared them with went gaga over them.

Can you blame them? I mean seriously, what could be better than eating a dark chocolate brownie AND a chocolate chip cookie, all in one glorious bite?

These brookie cookies are truly the best of both worlds.

If you have a chocolate craving, you’ve gotta bake up a batch!

It’s as easy as mixing up two kinds of dough, scooping balls of each, and then smooshing them together and baking them.

The brownie side of the cookie is based on my Simply Perfect Brownies recipe, and it’s soooo dark chocolate-y, fudgy, and dense.

And the chocolate chip cookie side is just my favorite Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe. Buttery, soft, and just bursting with melty chocolate chips.

I’ve been making both these recipes for years, so it was only a matter of time before they met, fell in love, and had adorable brookie cookie babies.

I hope you enjoy these brookies as much as my friends and family did!
