However, I had never tried a cookie cake recipe until a few years ago, and now the kids request it almost every year. It is so delicious and really simple to make.
You can decorate it however you prefer and it is a blast to create.

Let’s make this giant birthday cookie!
- brown sugar
- baking soda
- chocolate chips
How to make a giant cookie cake:
First, beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until fluffy in a large bowl.
Second, add the eggs one at a time. Make sure to beat the eggs thoroughly.
Next, slowly add flour, salt, and baking soda to the mixture until everything is mixed together really good.
Also, you certainly can use a hand mixer but we love our stand mixer. It gets a ton of use and to this day is such a good investment.
This next step needs to be done by hand. Add the chocolate chips and stir together with a spoon. Don’t use the mixer for this.
Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Finally, the mixture needs to go into a big round cake pan. (This is the wilton pan I use).
Just a tip- I always cover the pan in foil and then spray the foil with non stick cooking spray. It makes it really easy to remove the cookie cake from the pan and clean up is a breeze.
I make a lot of these for the kiddos and that is one tip that definitely saves a bunch of time.
Bake and let cool before decorating. I like to use a cooling rack for the cookie cake.
