These super yummy brookies are made by combining two epic treats - brownies and cookie dough!
This recipe is so awesome. Not only is it super yummy to eat but it's also so easy to make. I got the idea for these Brookies after seeing different versions made in the United States. This is my New Zealand version! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family (who devoured them all in a day!).
When I'm making cookies, I often cook half and freeze half for later. So for this recipe I only had to grab some pre-made dough from the freezer. You could also make some dough specifically for this recipe - try my epic Chocolate Chunk Cookies (what I used!) - or buy store-bought.
I decided to keep the brownie mix in this recipe super simple with only five ingredients. If you want a more indulgent recipe using melted chocolate try out this brownie as a base. The great thing about these brookies are you can combine your favourite brownie recipe with your favourite cookie dough.
HOW TO MAKE brookies:
This is a classic melt and mix recipe, so easy to make. Start by whisking the melted butter and brown sugar together, then add the egg and cocoa mixing well after each addition. Finally sprinkle in the self-raising flour, folding until combined.
Roll the cookie dough into balls and dot them over a lined baking tray. Then take the brownie mixture and spread it around the dough until there is an even layer of the two mixtures filling the tin. Sprinkle with chocolate drops and cook at 170°C fanbake for approximately 25 minutes. Sometimes it is good to undercook them so they are nice gooey in the centre.
COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT brookies:
What size tin should I use? My tin in 27 x 18cm and is a good size for this recipe. If you use a smaller tin and the mixture is thicker, it might take a little longer to cook.
What flavour cookie dough is best? You can use your favourite cookie dough in this recipe. I like using my Chocolate Chunk Cookies recipe the best! But my recipes for M&M cookies and Caramilk chunk cookies would also be amazing as they make huge batches so I always freeze half for later.

- 100g butter melted
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- ¼ cup cocoa
- 300g pre-made cookie dough
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- Pre-heat the oven to 170°C fanbake.
- Whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar.
- Add the egg and cocoa, whisking well after each addition.
- Pour in the self-raising flour and fold into the mixture until combined. Set aside.
- Take the cookie dough and roll into balls, dotting them around a lined baking tray.
- Spread the brownie mixture around the cookie dough then press down the two mixtures until they fill the whole tin.
- Sprinkle with chocolate chips then bake for 22-25 minutes or until cooked but still chewy.
- I pulled some pre-made cookie dough from the freezer for this recipe but you could also use store-bought cookie dough.
- If your brownie mixture seems to thick then add a splash of milk to thin it out a bit.
- If you don't have self-raising flour swap for 1 cup of plain flour and 1 tsp of baking powder.
- Brown sugar can also be swapped for white sugar and butter for 100ml oil. It may have a slightly different taste but I am sure it will still be delicious.
