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.
1/2 cookie, 1/2 brownie, 100% YUM.
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)
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. It adds a certain goo factor that just cannot be beat. 🙂 **
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. 🙂
