Someone told me about “Brookies” awhile ago and I thought…how can I NOT try these?? One, because of the name. Two, because Brookies are both BROWNIES and COOKIES! What?? Well I started investigating, and all the recipes I saw were a little complex for my busy life, so I Brook-ified them! I must say, now they’re amazing AND easy!

If you can make cookies (and even if you can’t!) you can make these. Really easy and SO GOOD!  You can take these short cuts or do the two parts from scratch. Whichever you prefer. It will still be fantastic!


Bottom layer

1 box (19.5 oz) fudge brownie mix

Prepare batter as directed with eggs, oil, water, etc.



Top layer

1 roll refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough

Vanilla ice cream, if desired (and why wouldn’t it be?)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark pan). Spray 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray. Make brownie mix as directed. Spread batter evenly in pan.
  2. Put cookie dough in a thin layer over brownie layer. (dough will spread during baking to cover top.)
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until cookie topping is deep golden brown and toothpick comes out ALMOST clean. (goo is good!)
  4. Top with ice cream. (of course)
