5 stars from 1 rating of Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Save Money by Making Your Own Cakes at Home!

During my most recent trip to the supermarket, I decided I wanted to check out the deserts. I was amazed by how expensive the cookie cakes were!

With a combined total of $3.82~

$2.18 for the chocolate chip cookie dough

$1. 64 for the frosting~

[The fruit (strawberries and blueberries) I added to the icing to make it extra terrific were picked fresh, washed, frozen, and ultimately cost pennies per serving.]

I was able to make my own cookie cake at home and it was just as delicious; the total cost was one-third of the price of the store brand available in the bakery!

As an added bonus, my young daughter was able to help me during the whole process which made the cake so much more meaningful than a trip to the bakery! We personalized it just how we wanted; the recipient of the present LOVED it!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Serves sixteen 1 and 1/2 inch cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 package Ready to Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, pressed into ungreased cookie sheet
  • 16 oz. Vanilla Frosting
  • 1/4 cup Frozen Strawberries, defrosted and smashed
  • 1/4 cup Frozen Blueberries, defrosted and smashed

Baking, Icing, and Decorating Instructions!

  1. Follow instructions on ready-to-bake chocolate chip cookie package- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use scissors to cut along the top seam of package. Remove the cookie dough from package using spoon.
  2. Spread the cookie dough on an un-greased cookie sheet. Use your hands to mold into the shape you want to achieve.
  3. Bake 9-13 minutes or until golden brown. Check with a toothpick after 9 minutes. Insert toothpick and remove. See if any dough is remaining; if it is, cook for a few more minutes; Don't overcook or your cookie might be dry and too crunchy!
  4. Cool completely before adding icing.
  5. For icing, mix 1/4 cup fruit (smashed) with 2 Tablespoons of icing in a small mixing bowl. Mix until fruit completely colors icing. You may need to add more icing (1 Tablespoon at a time) if it is too watery.
  6. Pink icing? Add strawberries. Purple icing? Add blueberries. Yellow icing? Add pineapple! Try to create your own masterpiece adding fresh/ frozen fruit!
  7. Frozen fruit works great if you let the fruit defrost in the refrigerator and drain the extra water before adding to icing.
  8. After creating the icing with fruit that is your desired color, scoop the icing into a small baggie. Move the icing down to the bottom tip and cut a small slit with scissors to create a quick pastry bag.
