Brookies are a fun and unique dessert that is so named because they are half brownies and half cookies. You can make it in a cookie shaper or a sheet pan. The first thing you need to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit then you will start by making the cookie portion of the brookies. Melt a three-quarters cup of unsalted butter then to that add brown sugar and white sugar then stir everything together then you will need one large egg with one egg yolk with a teaspoon of vanilla extract then stir everything together then set that aside.

For the dry ingredients, you will add two cups of all-purpose flour then to that add one teaspoon of cornstarch which will make teh brookies to be nice and soft, salt and baking powder. Stir everything together then start adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and use a spatula to stir them until they are completely combined then stir in one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Set that aside and start preparing the vanilla batter. In a mixing bowl, add 12 tablespoons of unsalted butter, to that add half a cup of semisweet chocolate chips then place that in a microwave and stir after 20 seconds until they are completely melted.

Once melted, stir in one cup of cocoa powder with one cup of brown sugar and white sugar. Stir them together just until they are mixed then you will add in two large eggs plus one egg yolk together with a teaspoon of vanilla extract then stir everything really well. Add a teaspoon of salt and one cup of all-purpose flour and stir that in until the chocolate mix is combined.

Lightly grease the bottom of your baking pan then pour the chocolate batter in the pan first then the vanilla batter with the chocolate chips on top of the chocolate batter. Top them with a few chocolate chips of broken chocolate pieces then bake in 350 degrees preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Once baked, let it sit on the counter for ten minutes before removing from the pan and digging in.
