A Brookie is a brownie + cookie swirled together in one delicious dessert. My S’mores Brookie bowls combine the Brookie with S’mores in a fun brownie bowl shape that you can load up with S’mores toppings.

How to make brookies with brownie mix and cookie dough mix

This is a shortcut recipe because it starts with brownie and cookie dough mixes. I don’t often use boxed mixes in recipes, but with all the luscious add-ins, no one will be able to tell you used a shortcut.

Watch the fun video to see how easy these S’more Brookies are to make! The trick is not adding the cookie dough in a big clump.

Can I use a homemade brownie batter and cookie dough instead of boxed?

Yes! Just use caution to use recipes that do not cause the batter to rise significantly, as you may flood your muffin tin while baking.

Could I just drop one big scoop of cookie dough on top of the brownie batter or do I really need to place in thin pieces?

You will want to take the little bit of extra time to make thinner layers vs a large clump. If you choose to do 1 large scoop, the cookie dough will take a little longer to cook through the center, causing the outside of your bowl to overcook.

What if I only own a standard 12-count muffin tin? Will it work?

I used two 6 cup jumbo muffin tins to make these brownie bowls. They’re a fun size for making the big Costco size muffins too.

You can make these in a standard 12-count muffin tin, but your baking time will be shorter, so be sure to keep an eye on them while baking.  

Also, don’t fill the muffin cups more than 2/3’s full. You may want to use two muffin tins or you could also make them in batches.

(I plan to make a batch in standard muffin tins soon and will update the post with the number it makes and the cook time.)

Removing Brookies from the Muffin Pan

For easy removal, be sure and spray the muffin cups well before adding the brownie batter. I like to use a paper towel to spread the cooking spray around the muffin cups.

The marshmallows in the brownie batter add flavor and a little chewiness to the brownie. They can also melt around the edge of the muffin cup, so be sure and run a knife around the edges to loosen the brownies before removing them from the muffin cups.

If you don’t have a non-stick muffin tin, you may want to omit the marshmallows from the brownie batter and just add more marshmallows on top.

How To Serve a Brookie Brownie Bowl

These S’more Brookie bowls are rich and delicious all by themselves, without any extra toppings.

But for an extra fun summer treat, add vanilla ice cream, drizzle the ice cream with chocolate syrup and sprinkle on some crushed graham crackers and chocolate bar pieces.

Notes

Note: I used Betty Crocker 18.3 oz Fudge Brownie Mix and Betty Crocker 17.5 oz Chocolate Chip Cookie and used the high altitude directions on the package for mixing the brownie batter.
