Steak and potatoes, peanut butter and jelly, cookies and milk: all food pairings that make sense. But then there are foods that should never be combined like pickles and ice cream or fish sticks and ketchup. 🤣 (I blame pregnancy hormones for those particular cravings.) Then there are the less common food mash ups that really just never made it to the spotlight. The delicious chocolate chip cookies and dark chocolate brownie fusion known as the brookie, falls into that last category.
Combining two classic desserts can be risky. I mean - we can all agree that on their own, chocolate chip cookies and dark chocolate, fudgey brownies are pretty spectacular.🍪🍫 The question remains though - would they be exponentially better if combined into a single dessert or just a weird sugary, hand held confection?
Spoiler alert: the brownie and cookie mash up is amazing. Somehow the brookie has managed to stay below the radar and remain out of the mainstream dessert spotlight though. And I really can't come up with any logical explanation for this. 🤷🏻♀️ So here I am, doing my part as a food blogger, to introduce the world to the amazing brookie.
I feel confident that once you make a batch of these brookies, and taste them for yourself - you too will be team brookie.
