So I bet many of you have leftover chocolate from Easter, right? What can we bake using it? Do we make some ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies or fudgy brownies? Why choose?! We can make both. They are called “Brookies” - brownies on top and chocolate chip cookies on the bottom!
- ½ cup butter, softened
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ¼ cup white sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or chopped up Easter candy)
- 1 cup white sugar
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- ⅓ cup cocoa powder
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- cup semisweet chocolate chips (or chopped up Easter candy)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Beat softened butter, light brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a large bowl until creamy. Add 1 egg; beat until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.
- Whisk 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is combined. Stir chocolate chips into dough. Spread dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish to cover completely.
- Stir 1 cup white sugar, melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a bowl; add 2 eggs and beat well. Mix cocoa powder into butter mixture until well-combined. Stir 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, and 1/8 teaspoon salt into cocoa mixture until batter is combined. Stir chocolate chips into dough. Pour brownie batter over cookie dough and spread to cover completely.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the Brookies comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
