A slutty cookie?

When it came to St. Patty’s Day this year, I really knocked it out of the park. Besides the corned beef ruebens I made (get that recipe HERE), I made a dessert item that I always love and that is well received, the brookie!

My brookies also go by another alias……the slutty bar…so if you’ve heard me mention them, they are one in the same. The brookie aka brownie-cookie is a layer of brownies, followed by a layer of Oreos, then topped with chocolate chip cookie dough. Yeah, I know what you are thinking….super healthy, right?

Since it was St. Patty’s Day, I put a little spin on my typical brookie and used mint oreos and mint M & Ms as a decorative topping. However, you could change that up depending on your taste buds and the occasion. The recipe is super easy, and again, you can change it up and use your own brownie or chocolate chip cookie recipe if you prefer.

Katie’s Brookie/Slutty Bar Recipe

Ingredients:

-Brownie Mix (I make my own, but if you prefer to buy a mix I recommend Ghiradelli Brownie Mix)….you’ll need any ingredients that the boxed mix you get calls for as well
-Oreos (I use about a dozen)…..you can use regular or mint like I did here
-1 1/4 cup flour
-1/4 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 cup softened butter (unsalted)
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
-1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
-1 egg
-1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
-M & M’s to garnish (you could use additional Oreo pieces if you prefer)

How to Make: 

Preheat Oven to 350 and Spray 9 x 13 pan. You can also use parchment paper or foil if you prefer. Prepare brownies as directed by box or your personal recipe. Pour into Pan. Smash Oreos so they are in chunks and place on top of brownie layer like below.

Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl, then set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, both sugars, egg, and vanilla until well blended. Slowly mix in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips by hand, then separate into three parts, flattening each before placing on top of brownie and cookie layer. The dough doesn’t have to cover the entire mix (I like to let brownie pieces show a bit). REMINDER: You can also buy chocolate chip cookie dough or use a different recipe. Press M & Ms or Oreo crumbles on top and bake for about 35 minutes. Allow to sit for about 45 minutes before cutting and serving.

Give me S’more S’mores!

Last week I was in complete Fall mode and was craving S’mores like nobody’s business. Since I have yet to buy a fire pit for my backyard, I decided on a different solution to making S’mores: an easy, yet fabulous cookie recipe that I loved.

The best S’mores cookie ever!

I shared a picture on Instagram and instantly was bombarded with people asking for the recipe. I have to preface this by stating these should be eaten in moderation because they will NOT fit into any meal plan, regardless of how hard you try.

                                                 Katie’s S’mores Cookie Recipe

-Chocolate Chip Cookies
-1 package mini marshmallows
-10 oz melting chocolate
-1 sleeve of graham crackers, crushed

If you have a specific chocolate chip recipe you love, I encourage you to use it. I use my family’s recipe (which I keep secret because some things should be). Obviously, you want to make the cookies first and let them cool completely.

Crush the graham crackers completely as you turn the oven on to BROIL. This is extremely important…you don’t want to have the BAKE setting on!

Place 7-10 marshmallows on each cookie (depending on the size of the cookie), pressing into cookie slightly before putting cookie sheet into oven and broiling until the marshmallows are golden brown. This happens FAST, so keep an eye on them or you will be really sad when you have burnt marshies!

Remove from oven and allow the cookie to cool completely. Once cooled, melt the chocolate, dipping each cookie in halfway and then sprinkling with crushed graham crackers. Transfer to cooling rack to allow the chocolate to harden completely.

Sorry, Murphy. No cookies for you!

These are so easy to make and are always a huge hit, especially with kids! Enjoy!

I do it all for the cookie.

Hi, I’m Katie….and I am a cookie monster!

Recently I had a hankering for some chocolate chip cookies, but since I knew my usual recipe is anything but healthy, I decided to give the healthy 21 Day Fix approved chocolate chip recipe a try. This recipe is from the Fixate cookbook that shares 101 recipes that are compliant with the 21 Day Fix eating plan. Need the cookbook? You can buy it here!

I always have two goals when making a new cookie recipe: Don’t eat them all, and make them good enough that Kyle won’t mind that they are healthy.
