Is it a Cookie? Is it a Brownie? No! It’s a BROOKIE!!!

Today I intend to grace the bloggy world with a recipe for supreme yumminess.

The Brookie.

1/2 cookie, 1/2 brownie, 100% YUM.

Ingredients:

1 box brownie mix (not the amped up kind, just a normal box)

Stuff listed on brownie box (eggs, oil, water)

1/4 C butter

1/4 C milk

1/2 granulated sugar

1/2 C packed light brown sugar

1/2 C chopped pecans (optional, I do not use these)

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 roll refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (I buy the family size roll)

Directions:

Heat oven to 350.

Spray 9X13 pan with cooking spray

Make brownie mix as directed on box using oil, water, eggs.

Spread batter evenly in pan.

Bake for 25 minutes (I usually cut this back to 20 min…. I prefer my brookies more on the gooey side)

In saucepan, heat butter, milk, sugar, brown sugar, pecans and vanilla to boiling, stirring constantly.

Reduce heat to med-low, simmer for about 3 min (until butter lumps are completely melted)

Remove from heat; set aside, until brownies are baked.

IMMEDIATELY pour praline mixture evenly over partially baked brownies. ** And, may I add here, that the praline mixture is what makes this dessert SUPREMELY yummy, rather than just yummy. Β It adds a certain goo factor that just cannot be beat. πŸ™‚ **

Cut cookie dough roll into equal slices (about 16 slices needed, plus little bits to fill in holes)

Carefully place slices in three rows of 5 slices each, using last slice to fill in large spaces (small spaces will be filled as dough bakes & spreads)

Bake 23-28 min. longer or until cookie dough is golden brown

Cool 2 hours.

Slice, & prepare for supreme yumminess. πŸ™‚

The Brookie, with a hungry little fella looking on in the background!

  1. Mmmmm… we make the same things, ‘cept for we take the easy way out. We just mix up a brownie mix and pour it in a pan, then mix up a cookie mix and drop it in spoonfuls on top of the brownies. Pop in the overn on 350 for 25 or so minutes and YUM! I sent some with James to work this week, then we had one of his coworkers and his family for dinner last night and had them for dessert… always a hit. (And they make me look gourmet, lol!) Love you!

  2. I have had them that way, but this way with the praline stuff in the middle, I’m telling you, makes a huge difference! The gooey-ness cannot be duplicated. πŸ™‚ But, in a pinch, the drop method works well too.
