Cookie cakes are the best! You don’t have to cook multiple batches of cookies, they’re great for a party, and it has frosting! How could you not want a slice of this M&M Cookie Cake?!

Back in the 90’s when I was still in elementary school, the coolest treat to bring to share with your class for your birthday was Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake. Some people even brought double layer cookie cake! Well, I thought it’d be fun to make an M&M variation.M&M Cookie Cake - Whether you have a reason to celebrate or not, this soft and chewy M&M COOKIE CAKE is the perfect dessert to enjoy with friends and family.

Who doesn’t love M&M’s with their colorful crunchy shell and milk chocolate center?! They’re dangerous little devils! They’re so small so you keep telling yourself “just one more” until you find yourself a the bottom of the bag and a tummy full of chocolate. Worth it!

The batter for this is more like a sugar cookie since it doesn’t have brown sugar and tastes like the beloved M&M cookies you’d get from the Mrs. Field’s stand in the mall.

Once you whip up your dough you just press it evenly into a greased pie dish and pop it in the oven. Let it cook completely and then run your knife along the edge and the whole thing will pop out to place on a platter. You can also just leave it in the pie plate.

The frosting is a simple chocolate buttercream. I used half dark cocoa powder and half regular. It was super yummy but you can just use whatever cocoa powder you have on hand. After you pipe on the rich chocolate frosting, top it with more M&M’s and feel free to throw on some sprinkles for good measure. Now you’re ready to slice and party!
