Merry Christmas y’all!! You might not know this about me but I LOVE to cook and especially bake, including cakes that I decorate. Feeding people brings me so much joy, I consider it a love language and yes, I am from the deep South. But guess what else? I’m not particularly AMAZING at it and I prefer easy recipes. When I cook for people they’re always asking for recipes then super surprised at how EASY they are, anyone can cook if they want to, I promise!! This Chocolate Chip Brookie recipe is a great example of working smarter, not harder. If you don’t already know a ‘Brookie’ is a combination of a brownie and a cookie.
Today’s post is a real treat (see what I did there?!) because it’s a Cookie Swap Blog Hop which means there are several other bloggers sharing recipes as well! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the post for links to their delicious cookies too!
This Chocolate Chip Brookie recipe is only semi-handmade, tastes incredibly delicious and will take you less than 10 minutes to prepare. The secret to a quick, but delicious dessert is not going all the way homemade. You just have let Mrs. Betty Crocker work her magic on your behalf. Sometimes you have time for full on, all day scratch baking but let’s be honest, it’s Christmas and we’re all wore thin by this point so I wanted to share something so simple anyone can make it. Even if you have 6 kids, a husband, 34 nieces and nephews, you’re hosting Christmas Dinner, a cookie swap party, and you’re homeroom Mom for 4 of your 6 kids. I see you!! (Sidenote: It’s ok to 1.) say no sometimes and 2.) take shortcuts!)
This dessert recipe is as simple as mixing up the brownie batter, then mixing up the cookie dough. Just spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, pour the brownie batter in then top it with chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough. You can serve up this easy dessert and no one will ever think twice about gobbling it up and packing on 3lbs while doing so, it is Christmas afterall. And on a completely different topic, how freaking adorable are these fox hunt plates?! I’m kind of obsessed with images depicting a traditional fox hunt so when I saw these at our local Habitat Re-Store I couldn’t help but buy them. I have a piece of fox hunt art in the living room you can check out too.
Here it is, the simplest dessert ever.
