These Love Monster Brookies are the perfect love story involving a lonely Brownie who fell in love with a Cookie. The thing with Brownies and Cookies is that they are DIVINE in their own right, but bring them together as one and you’re left wondering why you haven’t been eating them like that the entire time. So give them the best of both worlds this Valentine’s Day with this perfect two for one dessert; The Love Monster Brookies.


Themed and Fun | On its own these Love Monster Brookies are delicious enough, but the addition of Valentine’s themed decorations and some edible eyes gives them a little Valentine’s love.

Two for One | Brownies and Cookies are two of the most popular bakes out there so why bake just one their favourites when you can bake them both in one.

Delicious Texture | 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.


Make the Cookie first | As brownie batter should ideally get put straight in the oven as soon as it’s ready, it is advised to get the cookie dough ready first. If left too long on the side the air you’ve incorporated into the brownie batter can begin to deflate meaning you loose some of the rise.

Keep your Cookie Dough at Room Temperature | There’s no need to chill this cookie dough as you don’t want it to affect the temperature of the brownie batter. You also don’t need to worry about it spreading too much as that’s exactly what you’re looking to achieve.

Use Good Quality Ingredients | Brownies thrive when they’re baked using good quality ingredients, especially the chocolate. You want to use a chocolate that is 70% cocoa to get the best depth of flavour so avoid using anything less like Milk Chocolate.

Manage the Baking Times | If you’ve baked brownies and cookies separately before you will know they both have different baking times. Brownies generally need around 30 minutes, where cookies only take about 10-15, so when baked together it’s important to keep your eye on the bake. The cookie will bake first so the best way to avoid it burning as the brownie finishes off is to create a tent with tin foil or baking paper and cover the top of the baking tin after the Brookies have been in the oven for about 15 minutes.

To Decorate

For the Cookie

  • Cream the butter and two sugars in a large bowl until light and fluffy, then add the egg and combine
    115 g butter
  • In another bowl, combine the flour and baking powder, then add half to the butter and sugar mixture and mix it through. Add the remaining flour then add the chocolate chips and Sprinkles and fold them all through with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Leave to one side at room temperature while you make the brownie batter.
    50 g caster sugar

For the Brownies

  • Melt the butter and chocolate together gently then leave to cool.
    200 g unsalted butter, 200 g dark chocolate
  • Whisk the eggs and the sugar together until thick and mousse-like then add the cooled chocolate mixture and slowly fold it through.
    4 large eggs, 275 g caster sugar
  • Add the plain flour and cocoa powder and carefully fold them through until just combined.
    100 g plain flour, 50 g cocoa powder
  • Pour the mixture into a lined brownie tin then add various sized scoops of cookie dough on top of the batter to create a marbled/mottled look. When it bakes the cookie dough will spread a little and the brownie will rise so you want to leave some gaps so that eat bite has a nice mixture of brownie and cookie.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes in the oven at 170°C but after 15 minutes cover the baking tin with a tent of foil to stop the cookie from browning too much.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool then cut into 12 slices and serve.



How do you cut the perfect Brookies slice? 
Once cooled, pop the brookie in the fridge for a few hours or overnight and you’ll be able to slice it easier. You will also find the brownie element is much fudgier once firmer too. 
Can I freeze these brookies? 
Yes once cooled, you can either wrap the entire Brookies slab and freeze or slice them into squares and freeze them individually. 
To defrost, leave out wrapped at room temperature until fully defrosted. 
How should I store these brookies, and how long will they keep? 
Brownies are ideal as they keep really well and even taste better after a few days. The same applies for these brookies.
Store your brookies in an airtight container and leave at room temperature somewhere dark. They will keep for at least 5 days.
