Chocolate chip cookies are one of America’s favorite cookies. The only way to make them better is to serve them as a chocolate chip cookie cake. For the ultimate sweet experience top your cookie cake with chocolate icing.
Everyone will ooh and aah when you serve this easy cookie cake. The quick cookie cake recipe I use is one of my little culinary secrets.
You guessed my secret recipe if you guessed Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie cookie mix. This recipe only requires butter and an egg. It is super quick to DIY cookie cake recipes when you start with a mix and add your special garnishes such as, sprinkles, candies, etc.
Cookie Cake Baking Pans
If you are wondering how to make the best cookie cake then I have some great ideas starting with the pan and preparing the pan. To save on time and money I used a 9″ cake pan I had on hand. If you are using a cake pan that is smaller than 9″ the mix may over bake the sides of the pan so remove some of mix and make a few drop cookies too.
Tip: Bakery chef professional baking tip is to cut a non-stick parchment paper pan liner. I use a pencil and trace the bottom of the pan on the parchment paper.

Once my pan pattern is marked on the parchment paper I use my favorite kitchen scissors to cut it out. Next, I use bakers non-stick spray to grease the pan and then place the parchment circle in the bottom.

Cookie Cake Extra Options
How could this chocolate chip cookie cakes get any better, well, your special mix in goodies is how. Did I mention that I love Heath candy bars? Can you image the culinary delight that would offer a cookie cake? Don’t stop there you can add marshmallows, candies, sprinkles, nuts, etc. Baking times can vary according to your pan size I baked mine for 20 minutes then I checked to see if done. I added another 5 minutes baking time.
Note: you can only add up to 1/4 cup of mixed in goodies or your cake will bake over.
Cookie Cake Icing
Icing your chocolate chip cookie cake what could be sweeter? If you are making a birthday cookie cake then adding icing is a must. The icing can be added over the entire cake and/or use a pastry bag and pipe it on in any arrangement.
Iced Chocolate chip cookie cake
- 8 Tablespoons butter
- 4 Tablespoons dark cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 cups 10x sugar

- Cream together 10x sugar and softened (not melted) butter in an electric mixer bowl on slow speed. Gradually adding the cream until the mixture is creamy and spreadable. Spread the icing over the top of the cookie cake and pipe on more icing to decorate. Add sprinkles and enjoy!
The chocolate chip cookie cake is soft and chewy goodness.
