Ingredients
  

For the cookie dough layer

  • 160 g Unsalted butter At room temperature
  • 100 g White caster sugar
  • 150 g Light brown sugar
  • 1 Large egg At room temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 250 g Self-raising flour
  • 0.5 tsp Salt
  • 100g Terry's Chocolate Orange Chopped into small chunks

For the brownie layer

  • 150 g 70% dark chocolate I used Lindt 70%
  • 150 g Unsalted butter
  • 220 g White caster sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 150 g Self-raising flour
  • 100 g Terry's Chocolate Orange Chopped into small chunks

Instructions
 

Make the cookie dough

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Line a square 8x8inch baking tin (I used this one by Tala) with greaseproof paper. Set the baking tin aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and two sugars together until creamy.
  • Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
  • Fold in the flour and salt until the mixture comes together and forms a cookie dough.
  • Add the chopped chocolate orange and fold into the cookie dough.

  • Tip the cookie dough into the baking tin and use your hand to press it out into an even layer.

  • Place in the fridge whilst you make the brownie mixture.

Make the brownie mixture

  • Break up the dark chocolate and place in a microwave-safe bowl, along with the unsalted butter. Melt in the microwave in 30-second blasts, mixing after each, until completely smooth. Set aside for now.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar for 1 minute until pale in colour and frothy.
  • Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the whisked eggs and add the flour. Fold everything together until fully combined.
  • Fold in the chopped chocolate orange.

  • Take the baking tin out of the fridge and pour the brownie mixture on top of the cookie dough layer, spreading it out to the edges.

Bake the brookies

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes* until the top is no longer shiny and the edges have started to crack. If you give the tin a gentle shake, the brookies should have a slight wobble.

  • Leave to completely cool for at least 4 hours or overnight for best results. This will make them even more fudgy and easier to slice. You can speed up the cooling time by popping the brookies in the fridge for a couple of hours instead.

Notes

*Even if you’re unsure if your brookies are ready, I would still take them out as they will continue to cook as they cool down.
