Brookies

I had to make these after I watched that episode of Masterchef Australia where Harry made his Brookies for a midnight snack challenge.

Now if you’re wondering what a brookie is… it’s a combination of a brownie and a cookie.

They looked delicious on tv. And I wanted to make some.

I ended up not having enough dark chocolate, but the cocoa powder made it so much better. And I’m bot big fan of dark chocolate, so the cocoa made it a bit more sweeter and much nicer to eat.

I am quite happy with how they turned out. Was a bit surprised that there was no flour in this recipe. So I guess in theory that means it should be Gluten Free.

I made a brookie ice cream sandwich and added some chocolate sauce. It was to die for.

I also tried the original version of the recipe. But I couldn’t handle the heaviness and bitter taste the dark chocolate gave it.  Ended up throwing out that batch as no one ate it.
