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.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour

!Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 4 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar

!Brownie Layer

  • 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.

  • Stir in the eggs and vanilla and mix until batter has a nice sheen to it.
  • Fold in the flour and chocolate chips and stir until combined. (Do not over mix) Set aside.

!Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer

  • In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream butter and sugars.
  • Add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • In a medium bowl mix together cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour.
  • Add the dry ingredients on low just until combined. Do not overmix.
  • Fold in chocolate chips by hand. Set dough aside.

    Very yummy!! Tried the recipe exactly as it is and it came out PERFECT (just as always). My whole family lovved it! Thank you 🙂

    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

  2. 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!
