The Brookie

Brookies, you have stolen my heart.  What's a brookie, you ask?  Really, it's just a brownie with a cookie in the middle, but I've now heard them described twice as greater than the sum of it's parts.  My coworker brought some of these into the office last week, and we took the whole tray down before noon.  I then had to make them for a barbecue we went to over the weekend.

Sorry for the terrible iPhone photo, I almost forgot to get a photo before they disappeared so this was the best I could do.  

To make these, you'll need one box of brownie mix (plus whatever ingredients the mix asks for) and a package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (the recipe makes 24 brookies, so I used a package of 24ct break and bake cookies).  You could make everything from scratch, but you know, that takes a lot of time when you're suffering from a major chocolate craving.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease two muffin tins.

Prepare brownies as directed and pour mix into muffin tins.  Add one piece of cookie dough to the center of each.  

Bake for 20 minutes, until the brownies look set and the cookie dough has started to turn golden brown.  Let them sit 5-10 minutes in the tins, then loosen the edges with a knife and let cool completely on a cooling rack.  If you can wait that long.  The boyfriend and I both grabbed them as soon as they came out of the pan.  Which, let me tell you, was an excellent choice.
