Step 1: Things to Know Before You Start

Time schedule

  • Steps / Work time / Waiting time
  • Mix – Brownie dough / ~10 minutes / None
  • Mix – Chocolate chip cookie dough / ~10 minutes / None
  • Pre-shape – Brownie dough / ~10 minutes / None
  • Pre-shape – Chocolate chip cookie dough / ~10 minutes / None
  • Rest / None / 1 hour
  • Shape (4x) / ~5 minutes / None
  • Bake (4x) / 8 minutes / None
  • Cool / None / 30 minutes

In about 3 hours you will have some cool looking brookies.

Info: The work and waiting times for the shape and bake steps are per baking plate full of brookies. You will have dough for 4 full baking plates. So while one batch of brookies is baking in the oven, you can already prepare the next one.

Ingredients

  • 280 g Butter
  • 280 g Brown sugar
  • 260 g White sugar
  • 8 g Vanilla extract
  • 4x Egg (large)
  • 440 g All-purpose flour
  • 4 g Salt
  • 10 g Baking powder
  • 60 g Cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 100 g Dark chocolate chips

You will have about 48 medium sized brookies.

Info: For the chocolate chips you can pretty much take whatever you want. It doesn't have to be dark chocolate chips, but they give a nice balance to the sweet dough. Therefore, you can also go for milk chocolate or white chocolate chips.

Baking Tools needed

You will need a stand mixer or hand mixer, 2 bowls, 2 baking plates (1 is also fine) and parchment paper.

  • 1x Egg yolk (large)
  • 4 g Vanilla extract

Steps:

  • We used a hand mixer to mix the dough, but you can also use a stand mixer with a paddle attachment

  • 50 g Cocoa powder (unsweetened)

Steps:

  • Sift all the dry ingredients together in a second bowl and stir until combined
  • Add them step by step to the previous dough while mixing further until just combined to avoid overmixing
  • The dough should be slightly thick

Step 4: Pre-shape - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • Portion the chocolate chip cookie dough into 48 even pieces of about 18 g per dough piece
  • Roll each dough piece with your hands into a small ball and place next to each other on a plate

Step 5: Pre-shape - Brownie Dough

  • Portion the brownie dough into 48 even pieces of about 15 g per dough piece
  • Roll each dough piece with your hands into a small ball and place next to each other on a plate

Step 6: Rest

  • Cover both plates with the dough balls and store them in the fridge at 4-6°C (39,2-42,8°F) for at least 1 hour

Step 7: Shape

  • Take 2 baking plates and cover them with parchment paper
  • Take 1 brownie dough ball, 1 chocolate chip cookie dough ball, press them a bit together with your hands and shape a small cylinder
  • Place the flat side of the dough cylinder on the baking plate and press it a bit down
  • Repeat the process for the other 11 dough cylinders and place them next to each other (3 rows with 4 dough cylinders per row)

Step 8: Bake

  • Preheat oven to 175°C (347°F) for ~20 minutes with the circulating heat function
  • Put one baking plate in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 8 minutes
  • After baking take the brookies out on the parchment paper they were baked on

Step 9: Cool

  • Let your brookies rest on the baking plate they were baked on for about 10 minutes to set
  • Afterwards transfer them to a wire cooling rack for further cooling of at least 20 minutes to fully set

Step 10: Conclusion

The bright side is the chocolate chip cookie of course. It is sweet, soft - melty with a buttery taste and simply a proper cookie with chocolate chips.

The dark side is the brownie. It has this typical full chocolate flavour which turns out nicely creamy in your mouth.

As it is no brownie as such but in the shape of a cookie, the edges are a little crunchy which is a nice extra.
