Whenever my mom asks me what kind of cake I want for my birthday I say a cookie cake.  While I like vanilla cake and other flavors of cakes, my real favorite is the giant cookie cake.  Who wouldn’t love a giant chocolate chip cookie with frosting on top of it?   Sometimes my mom bakes it herself and other times she buys it from the local store.

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake for Valentine's Day

So this year for Valentine’s Day I decided we needed a Valentine’s Day cookie cake.   I took chocolate chip cookie batter and mixed in some Valentine’s Day M&M’s.  I placed it in a large, round baking pan, and cooked it in the oven.  When it came out  let it cool and then I tinted some frosting.   I made a traditional buttercream frosting and tinted it pink, red, and white.

I decorated the cookie cake with a pink and white border.  I wrote Happy Valentine’s Day on the cake as well.  Then I used the leftover Valentine’s Day M&M’s and put them on top of the frosting border in a pattern.  I also sprinkled heart sprinkles on top of the cake to finish it.

I took this cake into school earlier in the week and the kids went nuts over it!   They were thrilled to have a chocolate chip cookie and a cake in the same bite.  The kids kept asking me if I made it because it was “so good”.    I have to agree as I may have had one (or two) pieces of cookie cake myself.
