Kick off party-time with this Marvelous Chocolate Chip Party Cookie Cake! It is the ultimate sweet, moist and chewy chocolate chip cookie treat to display to your loved ones how much they really mean to you for all of the birthdays, holidays and special events you have coming up your way on your calendar schedule!
Super yummy and easy to prepare, you can decorate this cookie cake to your heart’s content with color-coordinated sprinkles, icing, chocolate chips and any add-ins your might like.
It’s not written in stone you have to stick to just chocolate chips btw, you can also add in peanut butter cups, m&m’s or even add in about a half cup of sprinkles to funfetti it up!
I used an 8 inch springform pan, for easy removal of the cookie, but if you don’t have that, you can use any 8 or 9 inch cake baking pan and line it with parchment paper or tin foil & spray it with non-stick cooking spray. It will be easy to lift out after it’s cooled and you can do your decorating thang!
A homemade vanilla buttercream frosting, chocolate buttercream frosting or a cream cheese frosting is excellent to pipe on the border of this cookie cake. You can even flavor your frosting with your favorite extract and tint the frosting with a cool color, by using a color gel of choice.
If you don’t want to go to all that trouble of whipping up a frosting, you can easily go buy a premade frosting of your choice and pipe it on top of your cookie cake.
I love using this easy Pillsbury™ Vanilla Flavored Filled Pastry Bags. Anyone can pipe frosting like a pro with Pillsbury™ Vanilla Flavored Filled Pastry Bags. Using the built-in star tip, you can make four distinct designs: stars, rosettes, swirls and waves. It’s all of the fun, none of the fuss. I used the frosting with my Pillsbury™ Frosted Snowmen on a Stick.
You can pipe the frosting as a border or write a personal message or do both.
Scoops of ice cream would be yummy too!
This cookie cake is simply over-the-top and will delight everyone any way you slice it!
