Peanut Butter Fudge Brookies

It's the weekend before Christmas. Hopefully you've gotten all your shopping done by now - though, given the number of people we saw at the mall today, you might now. Husband and I went to Ann Arbor today to have lunch with his family and we decided to swing over to Novi and the 12 Oaks Mall on our way home. There are a ton of neat shops there, and of course, the Cheesecake Factory (Peppermint Bark Cheesecake. Go get it). 

The experience made me realize that a lot of people may be running out of time, and that includes for baking holiday treats. So today I thought I would share a time saving dessert, but one that will be a huge hit. Peanut Butter Fudge Brookies.
Your first question might be, "What on earth is a brookie?" I'll tell you. It's a combination of brownies and cookies and it's spectacular. A layer of chewy chocolate chip cookie dough and covered in rich brownie batter. You can't go wrong with that.

I topped my brookies with a layer of hot fudge and a generous sprinkling of Peanut Butter Meltaways. (These are a hometown favorite from my hometown of Altoona, Pennsylvania. But you could use Reese's Cups if you're not lucky enough to be in central Pennsylvania.) The best part of this recipe is how quick and easy they are. You can use premade cookie dough and boxed brownie mix and you've got a quick dessert for a last minute holiday party.

The gooeyness. So full of melted chocolate.

Peanut Butter Fudge Brookies
  • 1 box of brownie mix 
  • 2 tubes of premade chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 1/4 cup hot fudge sundae topping
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peanut butter candies
  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Heavily butter or grease an 8 by 12 cake or brownie pan
  3. Let the cookie dough soften and spread it across the pan evenly
  4. Mix the brownie mix according to the box and pour on top of the cookie dough. Shake the pan a few times to make sure the batter covers the cookie dough
  5. Drizzle the top with the hot fudge and sprinkle it with the peanut butter candies
  6. Bake for 30 minutes


  1. These look amazing! I've never heard of a brookie before, but now that I have it's really genius, like combining the best of both worlds! I'll have to try these out!

    1. I hope you try them! Let me know what you think of them! Thanks for coming by!

  2. I love brookies! These look so good. I've pinned it to the Tasty Tuesday's PInterest board for future reference! Thanks for linking up at our party.
