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.

  1. 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?

    1. 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!

    1. These bake better in the order they are instructed. You are welcome to try switching it up but it may not stay as firm or bake as well. Let me know what you think! That sounds fun and a great idea! XOXO
