Praline Brookies

Praline Brookies are brownies that are completely over the top! They are rich, heavenly, decadent, S-E-N-S-A-T-I-O-N-A-L! These brownies start with a brownie layer on the bottom. The brownie layer is topped with a praline layer in the middle and then a marvelous chocolate chip layer on top. I used my Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies Copycat Recipe for the chocolate chip cookie layer rather than using refrigerated cookie dough. WOW!!! These ooey, gooey Praline Brookies are some of the most spectacular brownies you will ever taste! Chocolate lovers beware! These are addictive.

We went over to a friend’s house on New Year’s Day to watch the Baylor-UCF football game and the hostess served this fabulous dessert. When Jamye made it she said she didn’t cook it long enough so it actually tasted like the chocolate cobbler desserts such as my Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. Listen, I ate THREE pieces of the stuff. I drooled every time I walked by the dessert! Anyway, I cooked each layer about ten minutes longer than recommended just so these brookies would turn out more like a brownie instead of cobbler. Even still, this dessert is chocolaty and gooey inside. I LOVED them!

If you’re looking for a spectacular dessert for Superbowl day or any other tailgating party, I can highly recommend Praline Brookies. If you want a wonderful dessert for birthdays, special occasions, office parties, brunches, or for the holidays, Praline Brookies are a superb option. You won’t be able to stop at one. I’m sure. 🙂 They will become a family favorite very soon.

I couldn’t get enough of Praline Brookies when we had them on New Year’s Day. This gorgeous dessert is half brownie, half cookie–therefore, Brookies!

Praline Brookies are to die for! The brownie layer is on the bottom. The praline layer is in the middle. The chocolate chip cookie layer is on top.

Even though I cooked each layer ten minutes longer than recommended, Praline Brookies are still gooey!

 

Here’s what I did.

Spray a 9×13″ baking dish with cooking spray. Add brownie batter. Bake at 350 for about 25-35 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

You can see the holes in the middle where I inserted the toothpicks to check for doneness.

Prepare the Praline layer while brownie layer is baking. These are the ingredients necessary for the praline layer.

Prepare the chocolate chip cookie layer also while the brownie layer is baking: Place softened butter, sugar, brown sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl.

Add baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla.

Mix ingredients with an electric mixer until combined. (Or use a whisk).

Praline Brookies - IMG_3931

Add UNBLEACHED flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add chocolate chips.

Praline Brookies - IMG_3932

Stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Set cookie dough aside.

Praline Brookies - IMG_3934

Once brownie layer is fully baked, spoon praline layer over top.

Praline Brookies - IMG_3935

Now add chocolate chip cookie dough over top of the praline layer. 

Praline Brookies - IMG_3937

Bake chocolate chip layer 23-28 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
