Easy homemade brookie cake recipe, blending the best of both worlds.

By now, you know I love cookie cake, but did you know that I’m equally fond of Brookie Cake? It’s brilliant! I mean, why should you have to choose just one?

I blended my skip the mix easy fudge brownie with my secret ingredient cookie dough for a truly unforgettable mix. Then I baked it up in this pretty little heart shaped dish for Valentine’s Day, but any 9×9 cake pan or pie dish will do!

I’ve been holding off on sharing this recipe because while it’s incredibly good, I wasn’t sure I could make it pretty and you know my philosophy, food should look as good as it tastes, so I topped it off with a few sprinkles and it’s prettier {and more fun} than ever! Life is better with sprinkles, isn’t it?
