This Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is so fun! It’s fun to make, decorate and serve! I was nervous the first time I made a cookie cake. I guess I was thinking that it would be so much harder than it actually was to make. But, it is so easy to make! If you can mix cookie dough and shape it into a circle, which is super easy, then you can make a cookie cake! It is fun to decorate. I’m not much of a decorator. My mother-in-law gave me her set of tools but I do not have the eye or the hand to make things look cute on a cake. But this cookie cake is so easy to decorate. All you need to do is spread a layer of frosting over it and add sprinkles, and you have made a very nice looking cookie cake! This Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is fun to serve because it is not something people make at home often. Sure, you can buy them at the mall or even at the grocery store, but when it takes all of 15 minutes to put together, why not just make it at home? This cookie cake is soft and chewy with lots of chocolate chips!
I made this cookie cake two times in three days for two different events. One was for our youth group. The other was for a group of 4th graders. Both age groups loved it. How cool is it to have a cookie cake!
