Have you ever had a brookie? A brookie is a brownie + cookie. I will admit (please do not ostracize me) that I am not a chocolate dessert fan. I've tried recipes and had recipes that were chocolate this or chocolate that and they were just horrible. Bland, not chocolatey enough, dry, bleck. Who wants a dry un-chocolatey cookie? Or cake? Oh it just makes me shiver.
That's why if you look through my blog there may be a whopping 3 or 4 chocolate based recipes. Because I don't want to give you guys a horrible chocolate-based recipe. I would feel so bad.
But my hope has been restored with a recipe that includes THREE different kinds of chocolate to make the most perfect fudge-y, dense, and chewy brookie I have ever encountered. You will not regret making this wonderful recipe. You won't, I promise!
Yes, you read right, this has three kinds of chocolate in the brookie dough. First, you'll whisk together your dry ingredients that includes flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. You are going to add your typical cookie ingredients such as butter, eggs, vanilla, and sugar. Next, you'll add a generous amount of melted chocolate. Are you ready? After that you'll add another batch of chocolate chips.
Are you already in your kitchen looking for your chocolate? I won't be upset if you are.
After you bake the cookies, you'll let them cool and whip up this amazing butter cream. It's light and fluffy and perfect with the brookie. Let me know how fast these go!
