After a satisfying meal, I have a love for two specific treats – chocolate chip cookies and brownies. I prefer them to be soft, filled with chocolate, and easily melting in my mouth. However, the idea of combining these delicious desserts into one creation called a “brookie” had never crossed my mind. Allow me to recall the moment when I first discovered this delightful confection: it was during my senior year in high school when our teacher organized weekly bake sales to collect money for different class activities and school events.
During bake sales, I have noticed an assortment of goodies such as cookies, brownies, donuts, and cupcakes. Nevertheless, brookies were unfamiliar to me. Interestingly enough, my teacher frequently prepared these delightful treats and they consistently sold out rapidly. She insisted that I sample them prior to selling. Despite cookies and brownies being my typical preferences, I hesitated to blend the two flavors together fearing it might be overly sweet for my taste. To my surprise though, I absolutely loved them. My teacher reassured me that baking brookies was a simple process and she provided a thorough explanation of each step.
After learning how to make brookies, I frequently prepared them at home with my family who enjoyed them just as much as I did. The process for making brookies is both simple and quick, as it only necessitates a handful of ingredients. To create the delectable brookies, gather a box of brownie mix, 2 eggs, ? cup of water, ? cup of vegetable oil, and cookie dough. Additionally, you will require measuring cups for precise measurements, a mixing spoon, and a cupcake pan complete with cupcake liners.
To begin, preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare cupcake liners in a cupcake pan. Next, mix all ingredients for the brownie mixture (excluding the cookie dough) in a bowl. Stir until the flour mixture is no longer visible. Then, use an ice cream scoop or spoon to fill each cupcake liner halfway with the brownie batter.
Start by putting the cupcake pan in the oven. While that’s happening, form your cookie dough into little balls. It’s important not to mix the cookie and brownie together right away because it could cook unevenly or even burn. Let the brownies bake for at least 10 minutes. Then take out the cupcake pan and place each ball of cookie dough into a cup liner filled with brownie batter. Press down on the cookie until you see some chocolate coming out of the brownie mixture.
You can complete the process by placing the brookies inside the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Afterward, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool. Once cooled, your brookies are ready to be shared. Brookies are a delightful treat that can be enjoyed with your whole family. I am thankful to my teacher for teaching me how to make this scrumptious treat, and now you know how to create a delicious combination of two desserts. Hopefully, I have given you a clear understanding of how to make brookies so that you can attempt making them on your own someday.
