When it come to desserts, there are two strong camps on the best easy classic dessert. There are brownie people and there are chocolate chip cookie people. Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies are the dessert that doesn’t make you pick side!

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie, also known as a Chocolate Chip Brookie, is a hybrid of chocolate brownies and chocolate chip cookies that leaves everyone satisfied. They are so easy, hardly any extra work than your regular cookie and brownie recipes you normally make separately.

For this Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie recipe, there isn’t a box brownie mix or refrigerated cookie dough in sight. It’s made completely from scratch and it’s still done in less than an hour! The hardest part of this Brookies recipe is waiting for them too cool enough to gobble up!

Easily whip up these Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies whenever a craving hits or make them ahead! To make future snacking easier, cut Brookies into individual squares and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze on baking sheet for 1-2 hours and then transfer to a freezer safe bag for up to 3 months.

These warm, chocolate brownie cookie bars are perfection on their own with an ice cold glass of milk. If you want a topping, dust with powdered sugar or drizzle with Caramel Sauce. For neat, even squares cool your Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies completely before cutting. Pop them in fridge for an hour to make cutting even easier.

If you are making Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies for an extra special dessert, serve them with Vanilla Ice Cream or Cool Whip. Top them with Chocolate Ganache and refrigerate until ganache has set for a fudge layer that won’t melt everywhere.

  • Cookie Dough: Use another favorite homemade cookie dough recipe like Sugar Cookies or Peanut Butter Cookies
  • Chocolate Chips: Swap out the semisweet chocolate chips for white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips. You can also add chocolate chips to the brownie batter.
  • Peanut Butter: Swirl in slightly melted creamy peanut butter to the brownie layer after pouring over the cookie dough. For more peanut butter flavor, add peanut butter chips to the cookie dough.
  • Nuts: Add chopped walnuts, almonds, or pecans to the brownie batter for a nutty, crunchy brownie layer.
  • Brownie Mix: Save time on this recipe by using a box brownie mix instead of making homemade brownies. For richer box brownies, use butter instead of oil and add an extra egg.
  • Brownie Batter: Use another Brownie Recipe instead of chocolate brownie mix. Peanut Butter Brownies would taste delicious with the chocolate chip cookie layer.



  • Serve: These Chocolate Chip Brookies can kept at room temperature for up to 4 days. Cover and keep in a cool dry place.
  • Store: Store your cookie bars the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week. Use parchment paper if layering so they don’t stick.
  • Freeze: Cool Brookies completely before transferring to a freezer safe sealed container and freeze for up to 3 months.

  1. I have a “brookie” cookie recipe that I love, but these are even easier! The only instruction I didn’t follow was letting them cool completely. I like them ooey and gooey, even if they don’t look as pretty. haha

  2. Wow, these look amazing and easy to make..the texture looks perfect, too. This is totally the best of both worlds!

  3. I make your recipes ALL the time and I know my kids are going to love these! Easy to follow and sensible delicious ingredients. You’re one of my regularly referenced websites and always looking forward to what you’ll post next. Thanks for these yummy brownies.
