This cookie cake is just unreal. Some of my favorite candies in what is essentially one ginormous cookie! This cookie cake is super soft and chewy. If you are lazy like me, you will love this. Instead of waiting for the dough to chill and rolling individual balls, you can get everything done in minutes! No chilling, no rolling a bagillion balls of dough, just make the cookie dough and pack it into the pan – piece of cake! (Cookie cake, that is. ) From bowl, to oven, to table in 30 minutes! This cookie dough is the perfect canvas to add any mix-ins you’d like. I made s’mores bars last weekend and had a whole chopped hershey bar begging to be used, so I threw that in there with everything. I also threw in some chopped twix, m&m’s and chocolate chips. Too much? No way! Feel free to use whatever you’d like or whatever you have on hand.
I love the way the twix gives it a slight crunch and then in some bites you get a melty, gooey bite of caramel! So good. You can use this recipe as an excuse to use up any candy you have laying around the house!
I used no leaveners in this recipe because I wanted it to be as dense and chewy as possible. No cakiness here! I also used all brown sugar because it lends a very soft cookie. I based it off of my favorite chocolate chip cookie and this cake just is pure cookie heaven. This is without a doubt, going to be your new favorite dessert. It’s easy, has extremely simple ingredients and it’s so quick to put together!
Honestly, what is better than a giant, chocolate filled, soft-baked cookie that is the size of a cake? I think nothing.
