Brookies (brownie/chocolate chip bars)

Is it a brownie? Is it a cookie? Nope, It’s a brookie! Brookies are bars made from marbled layers of fudge brownie batter and cakey chocolate chip cookie dough. When I first heard of them, I thought they were a silly fad but then I tried them and oh boy, was I wrong!!! Diwali is just around the corner, I would highly recommend making these for your next party! Brookies are not only super delicious but they are also festive than your basic brownies or chocolate chip cookies. They are perfect for those occasions when you need a fun potluck treat for all ages and they are pretty handy for packing in lunch boxes and late night snacking, too!!

Sorry I have been MIA lately, just lot of things that took over in priority list along with traveling and festivals. Its pretty much on the go and will be like this until end of the year. This week is pretty much hectic but I am trying to squeeze this recipe in before midnight as its been in my draft for last 3 months. I have a lot to do before Diwali next week and so little time! Will be posting my Diwali decor along with some yummy recipes! Stay tuned!! Hows your Diwali prep coming along??? Do share, looking forward to hearing from you all..
