  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp milk chocolate chunks for this I chopped 4 squares of a Ghirardelli milk chocolate bar



  • In a small pot over medium heat, melt butter. Allow butter to a come to a boil. Continuously stir until butter turns an amber color and has a nutty smell, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer butter to a heat safe bowl. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to allow it to re-harden.
  • Once butter has hardened, place it in a large bowl, or bowl of stand mixer with sugar and brown sugar. Use mixer to beat on high speed until lightened, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and mix until well combined.
  • In a small bowl, stir together flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking powder. On medium-low speed, gradually beat into butter mixture until well combined.
  • Stir in 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chocolate chunks.


  • In a large mixing bowl or base of a stand mixer, combine all of the brownie ingredients. Mix until well combined, but do not over mix.


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line bottom of a cast iron skillet with parchment paper. Spray sides of skillet with cooking spray.
  • Spread brownie mixture in bottom of skillet. Next, drop cookie dough in spoonfuls over the the brownie. Finally, sprinkle remaining 2 tbsp of chocolate chips and 2 tbsp of chocolate chunks over top of cookie dough.
  • Place skillet in oven. For my 9" skillet, it took about 35 minutes for the brookie to cook through. If you are using a larger skillet, yours will be done quicker, so I would recommend that you start to check after 30 minutes. Check by sticking a toothpick in the center of the brookie. When it comes out with just a few crumbs, it's ready.
  • Let brookie sit for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Best served warm.
