Sparkle Brookies aka. Sparkle Brooks

Yes, brookies not broekies and yes, it is actually a thing. Not too long ago I took my brookies to work and had all my co-workers in stitches when I told everyone that walked into our office they had to try my brookies. You see they thought I was saying broekies – a term some South Africans use when referring to their underpants. Only in South Africa, hey.


Okay, so many of you may know brookies – there are many recipes out there; but for those of you who thought I was talking about my sparkle pants when you heard brookies… brookies are basically the love-child between a brownie and cookie. Instead of saying brownie cookies, or cookie brownies – brookies was born.


Like I said many recipes are out there and brookie world is an exciting one to explore. But for now, here is the recipe for Sparkle Brooks.







  • Preheat the oven to 180˚ C.


  • Mix the eggs, melted butter and brownie mix until smooth (but don’t overmix).


  • Place a sheet of baking paper in a glass oven dish and spray with non-stick spray.


  • Pour half of the brownie mix in the glass dish.


  • Layer the biscuits over brownie mix.





  • Slice the lunch bar into pieces and sprinkle over biscuits.



  • Then pour the rest of the mix over.



  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the batter is set (remember it needs to be harder than a brownie and softer than a hard biscuit).



  • Melt the dark chocolate; one minute in the microwave – take out and stir. If its still not melted, place back in the microwave for ten seconds; take out stir and repeat, as needed.


  • Pour the melted chocolate over the brookies.



  • Decorate with smarties; and sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to set and cut into slices.



TA-DA! And that’s how you make Sparkle Brookies aka. Sparkle Brooks.
