Red Velvet Brookies
A brookie is the best of both worlds– a cookie and a brownie in one! These Red Velvet Brookies are a spin off recipe and combine chocolate chips cookies with cake mix red velvet brownies! SO delicious.
Are you all familiar with “brookies?” They are for those of us who simply can’t choose between a brownie or a cookie– take both and combine them into one delicious 2-layer bar, and you’ve got a brookie!
I made these Monster Cookie Brookies last year, and they have seriously been one of my favorite bar recipes ever since. But it looks like they’re going to have to make some room for these Red Velvet Brookies, because these are definitely going on the favorites list!
I love the color contrast of these bars about as much as I love their taste. I mean, I know that it’s just a ton of red food coloring… but isn’t it still gorgeous? Especially with that layer of golden, buttery, chocolatey cookie up on top… *drool*
And it’s really a very easy recipe. You’ll make one layer of cake mix brownies (I followed this recipe from Cookies and Cups) and then top it with a layer of classic chocolate chip cookie dough. See? Pretty simple.
I promise: these are going to rock your world! We ate ours warm and gooey with a big scoop of ice cream, and it was divine. Of course, I’ve been picking at it all day today, and I can vouch that it’s still pretty divine even after it’s been left uncovered out on the counter for 24 hours.
So either way you go… it’s gonna be good.
