The easiest way to make brookies!
These things are the easiest thing to make in the entire world. You probably have the stuff to make them right now.
They’re kind of my signature dessert, too. I even named my dog after them.
This is Brookie. She is as sweet as the dessert she's named after!
The best part is that people will have NO IDEA that it all came from a box.
1 box brownie mix + ingredients it requires
1 box cookie mix + ingredients it requires
That’s it. That’s literally it. It's so easy it feels like cheating.
This is what I use, generally, but you can use any kind of boxed cookie & brownie mix!
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Prepare brownie batter as instructed on package. You can boss them up, or follow directions exactly.
- Generously grease a 9x13 baking dish. (If you only have a smaller size, make sure to increase cooking times by about 5-10 minutes)
- Pour in brownie batter. Bake for about 20 minutes until the top part starts to get crusty.
- While this is happening, make cookie dough according to the box. Pro tip: if it calls for butter, DON’T MELT IT. Use room temp, or else the cookies won’t have a nice shape coming out of the oven (this goes for ALL cookies. The reason why your cookies are flat and burnt and Brenda’s are thick and nice? Brenda doesn’t melt her butter. Brenda also probably freezes her cookie dough before she bakes it. Be like Brenda.)
- Put the cookie dough on top of the brownie mix when it comes out of the oven. Be careful with this part; molten brownie mix is both painful and tasty. Try and get cookie dough over the whole surface. If you can’t manage it, no worries, you did your part for the office potluck and they’ll be grateful to receive anything tbh.
- Bake for 20+ minutes until cookie part is golden brown. Let cool & solidify— you could try some now, but it will be gooey (& delicious). Probably wait until the party starts, but hey— I get it. It smells real nice in here now.
They taste so good and are so easy to make. Enjoy!
