Ingredients

Cookie layer

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Brownie layer

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 9"x13" baking pan and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, cream the butter, sugars, and vanilla together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and continue mixing until fully incorporated.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the dry ingredients. Finally, add in the chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Transfer the batter to your prepared baking pan, making sure to fully cover it with the batter. Set aside.
  • To make the brownie layer, mix the melted butter, sugar and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add the eggs and mix well. Add the cocoa powder and mix until fully incorporated. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt until combined.
  • Pour the brownie batter over the cookie layer, making sure to cover it completely.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. If you like your brownies a little fudgier, bake for less time.
  • Allow the brookies to cool before slicing and serving.

Notes

Brookies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator and will keep for several days.
