Brookie Bars

Amazing Brookie Bars! A layer of chewy chocolate chip cookie and a layer of fudgey brownie. The best of both worlds!

Hi guys! It’s Kelley back from Chef Savvy! Today I am sharing these AMAZING Brookie Bars! These bars are the best of both worlds! Super rich chocolate brownie on the bottom and chocolate chip cookie on the top!

I halved my recipe for The Best Brownies. They make a super fudgey, rich and chocolatey brownie.

The bars are soft, moist and buttery with chocolate chips in every bite! These are the perfect choice when you can’t decide between a brownie and a cookie.

Brownie Layer
  1. Add butter to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until light brown / caramel in color. 5-10 minutes. Make sure to keep and eye on it so butter does not burn. It also helps to use a light colored saucepan for this.
  2. Pour browned butter into a large bowl along with both sugars, cocoa powder, salt, instant coffee granules and baking powder. Stir until combined and allow to rest for 5 minutes or until the mixture has cooled down.
  3. Stir in the eggs and vanilla and mix until batter has a nice sheen to it.
  4. Fold in the flour and chocolate chips and stir until combined. (Do not over mix) Set aside.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer
  1. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream butter and sugars.
  2. Add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour.
  4. Add the dry ingredients on low just until combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips by hand. Set dough aside.

  3. So good! Our house will be packed with teenagers this weekend — and this treat is definitely on the list!

  4. Gloria Klement says:

    The Brookie Bars recipe calls for 1 egg in the brownie layer, yet in the instructions, it says to add the eggs for the brownie layer. Is the brownie layer supposed to have more than 1 egg?

    • I will fix that! Thanks for pointing that out to me! It is 1 egg. I just added an ‘s’ at the end. Sorry for the confusion!
