Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake Easy


    Today we’re making a chocolate chip cookie cake with a delicious chocolate frosting! To make the chocolate cookie cake EVEN BETTER we’re covering it in festive birthday sprinkles!


    • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tbsp cornstarch
    • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • pinch of salt
    • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    • 2 – 4 tbsp milk


    To a bowl, add in the butter and both sugars. Mix until combined, about 2-3 minutes. Next add in the egg, vanilla extract, baking soda and salt. Mix until smooth. Lastly, add in the remaining dry ingredients and mix until combined then fold in the chocolate chips.

    Using either a spring form pan or a 9 inch cake pan, spray the inside with nonstick cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper (if you’re using a cake pan). Take the cookie dough and toss it into the baking pan and, using a spatula or your clean hands, evenly spread out the dough.

    As an added bonus, place some chocolate chips on top of the chocolate chip cookie cake before baking. It’s optional, but it makes the cake look extra pretty!

    Into a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 21 – 23 minutes. Do NOT let your cookie cake overbake! Remove from the oven when the edges have turned a nice golden brown and the center looks “set”.

    Let your cookie cake cool completely, about 1 hr, before trying to remove it from the pan. Take it out once it has had a chance to cool.

    To make the frosting, add the butter, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and salt. Mix until smooth. Next, alternate between the last two remaining ingredients, beating between each addition. Once your frosting is nice and smooth, transfer to a piping bag fitted with your favorite piping tip. I used a Wilton M1 piping tip. Add on the birthday sprinkles and enjoy!
