These Funfetti Brookies are the perfect hybrid of two favourite bakes; fudgey chocolate brownie and chewy Funfetti Cookie. They are so easy to make and even more delicious to eat!
WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS RECIPE
Two for one bake | Brownies and Cookies are two of the most popular bakes out there so when you can’t decide between a rich chocolate or a chewy cookie, this bake is the ideal solution.
Delicious flavours and textures combined | It’s hard to resist the flavour and texture combination of a fudgey rich chocolate brownie and chewy cookie. As you bite into the brownie bar you crunch down into a delicious chewy vanilla cookie, but then are immediately greeted with a soft gooey rich brownie. I don’t think a bake could get any better.
Creative, fun and easily adaptable | Just looking at these brownies is enough to make you smile. They’re such a joyful bake to create and you can easily adapt the ingredients in the cookie to make them a different flavour. Some other delicious options include;
- Classic chocolate chip cookie and triple chocolate chip brownie
- White chocolate with a raspberry chocolate brownie
HOW TO MAKE THIS FUNFETTI BROOKIE
The steps to making this delicious Brownie and Cookie hybrid are really straight forward, but there are several ways you can combine the two together.
Make the Cookie Dough | To get started you’ll need to create the cookie dough first. Ideally you want a cookie dough that spreads quite easily as you want the cookie to bake over the brownie once in the oven. Some recipes like my Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe use a high flour ratio which is great if you want a cookie that can go straight into the oven as it doesn’t need to be chilled, but a cookie dough with a lower flour ratio is better for this recipe as you want it to spread.
Make the Brownie | You can follow any brownie recipe for this bake but I like one that is super rich, dense and fudgey. To get this texture there is a certain method that I like to use where the eggs and sugar are whipped together first to give the bake lots of rise.
Combine the two together | When combining the two bakes together you could choose to cover the entire top of the brownie with the cookie dough so you have a layer of brownie and a layer of cookie. Or you can marble it like I have in this recipe by adding a variety of cookie dough ball sizes across the top. With this method you get a really fun pattern across the top when baked and get to see both the cookie and brownie in each slice.
