Have a sweet craving but can’t decide whether to go for chocolate chip cookies or decadent brownies? Meet the Brookies. A dessert made by combining a brownie and a cookie. Simple and delicious cookies that can be done in 40 minutes only!

The Ingredients:

  • 8 oz of bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
  • 5 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp instant coffee or 2 tbsp very strong coffee (optional) 2 oz brown sugar
  • 5 oz granulated sugar (increase this by 1 oz if you like the cookies a little sweeter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.2 oz of plain flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt flakes (optional, plus extra to sprinkle on top)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Melt the butter, coffee and the chopped chocolate in a heat- proof bowl, while stirring frequently (over a bain- marie/double boiler or in the microwave). Let it cool.
  2. While the chocolate is cooling, mix the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt well together using a hand-held beater. Mix the eggs for about 3-4 minutes until the eggs are thick and pale in color. This is really important to get that beautiful crackly top.
  3. Add the cooled chocolate to the egg mix and use the hand mix to incorporate it in to the egg mix.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder together.
  5. Mix the flour into the chocolate and egg mix, until just combined.
  6. Transfer the batter into the freezer until it’s firm but easy to scoop (about 30 minutes), or to the fridge for about an hour till firm enough to form scoops.
  7. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  8. Line 2 cookie trays with parchment paper.
  9. Use a cooking scoop to scoop the cookie batter onto the cookie trays (2 tbsp cookie scoop) – give them enough space to spread and bake.
  10. Bake cookies in preheated oven for 9 – 10 minutes. The cookies will look puffed up and the top will become crinkly and cracked. Cookies will flatten out as they cool.
  11. Remove from the oven. They will be very soft straight out of the oven, so let them cool down a little before you transfer them to a wire rack to cool down further.
