Today is Day 3 of #Choctoberfest and I am so excited to share my first recipe with you all. Today was just one of those days where cookies sounded great but so did brownies. What was I suppose to do when I could NOT decide??? Make both of course!!! These Brookies tasted great on their own but as my boys figured out the tasted even better warm with a scoop of ice cream on top!! However you prefer them you are going to love them!! ENJOY!! 🙂

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line with parchment paper one 9×13 baking pan and then spray lightly with nonstick spray and set aside.
