Two of my favorite treats after a well cooked meal are chocolate chip cookies and brownies. I like them both to be chewy and chocolaty as it melts in my mouth, but I never thought about what it would taste like to combine both delicious deserts into one, creating a brookie. Here’s how I was first introduced to the delicious treat. When I was a senior in high school my teacher set up bake sales every week to raise money for class activities and school events.
I’ve seen people bring cookies, brownies, donuts, and cupcakes to the bake sales, but I never heard of anyone bringing brookies. My teacher made them all the time, but they would sell really fast. She insisted I try them one day, before she put them out on the table. Even though both cookies and brownies are my favorite, I didn’t trust eating them together, I thought it would be too sweet and I wouldn’t like it. But I was wrong, I absolutely loved them. She told me it was very easy to make, and explained the process to me step by step.
After learning how to make brookies, I made them at home all the time with my family, and they loved them just as much as I did. Steps on making brookies don’t need many ingredients, which is why it’s so simple and quick to make. To create the brookies you will need a box of brownie mix, 2 eggs, ? cup of water, ? cup of vegetable oil, and cookie dough. You will also need measuring cups so your ingredients could be measured accurately, a mixing spoon, and a cupcake pan as well as cupcake liners.
Before you proceed on mixing the ingredients together, you want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and set up your cupcake liners in the cupcake pan. You are now ready start mixing your brownie mixture. Combine all you ingredients together except for the cookie dough. You want to mix the brownie ingredients until you see there is no more flour mixture visible. After that is completed, fill each cupcake liner half way with brownie batter. You can do this by using an ice cream scoop, or simply using a spoon, just make sure the batter is halfway.
Place the cupcake pan in the oven, and while that begins to cook you will roll your cookie dough into little balls. The reason you don’t want to put the cookie inside the brownie at the same time is because the cookie will cook faster than the brownie, and you don’t want the cookies to burn. Leave the brownies in the oven for at least 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes pass, remove the cupcake pan from the oven and place each rolled chunk of cookie dough inside the cup liner of brownie batter. Push down the cookie until you see a little bit of chocolate oozing from the brownie mix.
You want to place the brookies inside the oven for another 10 minutes to complete the process. When those 10 minutes are done, take them out the oven and let them cool off. After that your brookies are ready to be shared. Brookies are definitely an enjoyable treat to share with your whole family. I’m really happy my teacher taught me how to make this delicious treat. You now know how to make two deserts in one, which taste amazing. I hope I gave you a good understanding on how to make brookies, so you can try it on your own one day.
