I first made this cake for my brother's birthday. He doesn't care for normal cake, and his favorite sweet is chocolate chip cookies, so he (and all the rest of the family) loved this. He has asked for it every birthday since. One time when I served it to ten people and there was leftovers, I caught my dad eating it for breakfast the next morning! All lovers of chocolate chip cookies must try it! Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 3 large baking sheets. Cut three 10-inch rounds of parchment paper and set each round on each baking sheet.
  2. Beat 1 cup butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until fluffy and smooth. Mix eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt into creamed butter until just combined; stir in flour until dough is just combined. Fold chocolate chips into dough.
  3. Divide dough into 3 parts; press 1 part onto each parchment round.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookie rounds are browned and crisp around the edges and set in the middle, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  5. Stir melted butter, milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a bowl. Beat confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder together in a separate bowl until evenly combined. Beat butter mixture into cocoa mixture until frosting is smooth and thickened.
  6. Peel parchment paper off the bottom of each cookie round. Set aside the prettiest round to be used for the top layer. Spread 1/2 the frosting onto 1 cookie round and top with a second cookie round. Spread remaining frosting onto second cookie round and top with the third cookie round.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

My Husband loved this very rich chocolate cookie cake. I used 3 nine inch cake pans, added parchment paper, then sprayed the pans. It was very easy to remove the cookie layers. After adding some frosting to the two layers, I still had some frosting left over.

I wasn't sure what to expect texture wise for this cake. I couldn't tell if it would be more like a cookie or a cake. The answer is it is a little of both. It is like a huge layered soft amazing chocolate chip cookie. I made this for my daughter's 8th birthday and everybody raved about it and several people asked to take pieces home. The only change I made was to use different chocolate icing since I had some made already that needed used up. I will DEFINITELY be making this again!

I made this after my son asked for a cookie cake. It was a hit and super easy. I used a different icing and it was great.
