M&M Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake


Chocolate chip cookie cake recipes are easy to find, but this is my all-time favorite. You can make it as a basic chocolate chip cookie cake with semisweet chocolate chips or you can add M&Ms and decorate it with frosting for a more festive appearance. It’s an easy recipe, but keep in mind the dough spreads.

Cream butter and both sugars by hand or with an electric mixer. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. When well mixed, add flour mixture and stir until blended Fold in chocolate chips.
